Theory of a Deadman

Theory-of-a-Deadman

Sportsnet 960 The FAN welcomes Theory of a Deadman with guests Head of the Herd to Flames Central on November 18th!

Tickets go on sale September 26th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.

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]. However, everything in their lives rapidly and unexpectedly changed.

Whether it be a shakeup at their label, waning interest in rock at radio, or the downturn of society at large, a myriad of issues weighed heavy on members Tyler Connolly [Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar], David Brenner [Rhythm Guitar], Dean Back [Bass], and Joey Dandeneau [Drums].

So, Connolly channeled it all into his songwriting.
