Theory of a Deadman
You know what they say, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” In Theory of a Deadman's case, they go right to the studio. In the middle of 2013, the platinum-selling Canadian quartet began working on what would become its fifth full-length album, Savages (Roadrunner Records/604). Once again teaming with super producer Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Halestorm] in the studio, Tyler Connolly tapped into the same robust riffing and primal power that coursed through the group's 2008 platinum-certified breakthrough, Scars & Souvenirs—which yielded the #1 Mainstream Rock Radio smash "Bad Girlfriend," as well as "So Happy" and "By The Way." Lyrically, Connolly turned his attention to the state of the world around him and churned out the band's catchiest and most crushing statement yet. That songwriting process solidified Theory of a Deadman as a major contender in modern rock since their self-titled 2002 debut. 2011's The Truth Is…  landed in the Top 10 of Billboard's Top 200 Albums Chart upon its debut, while topping the "Top Rock Albums," "Top Alternative Albums," and "Top Hard Rock Albums" charts. In addition, it spawned the #1 radio hit "Lowlife," which ruled Rock Radio for three weeks straight. Along the way, the group has toured with everybody from Alter Bridge, Stone Sour, and Godsmack to Daughtry and Mötley Crüe. However, Connolly and the guys always have the same goal in mind.
