After watching these guys open for Gerard Way this past Spring, I can definitely vouch for the fact that you'll be getting a killer performance out of them!

8. Three Days Grace
When? November 6 - Where? Metropolis - 49$. Three Days Grace may have recently changed their front man, welcoming singer Matt Walst, but the alternative band known for hard hitting lyrics and an amazing rock show hasn't lost their energy. If anything they're the same old band with a fresh new perspective. Check out the album 'Humans'!
9. The Neighborhood

10. Hollywood Undead
When? October 6 - Where? Metropolis - 32$. Blurring the lines between rap and rock, Hollywood Undead is sure to give Montreal an energetic and lively show on October 6. With a similar style to Papa Roach and Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead is no stranger to hard work. After losing their label, most bands would crack under the pressure. But the boys of Hollywood Undead took it in stride and created an even better album (Day of the Dead) than their past releases.
