Canadian rockers Theory Of A Deadman are back with another batch of odes to hard partying, hard drinking, beautiful women, and living life like there’s no tomorrow. The band’s music is down-and-dirty rock and roll done right, mixed with some swampy blues riffs and a healthy serving of good-ol’-boy country – and they have concerts to match. With booming bass drums, high-impact guitars and stadiums and arenas packed with Deadman fans who are there to party, this is one of the best rock tickets in town. It’s not all high-energy madness, though. Lead singer and songwriter Tyler Connolly has seen some pain, and he's turned it into soft, introspective ballads, like “By the Way” and, from their recent 2011 album, "The Truth Is…," the good-relationship-gone-bad song “Out Of My Head.”
Theory Of A Deadman has been going strong since 2001, when this foursome from the tiny British Columbia, Canada, town of Delta got their big break, becoming the first band to sign to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s newly minted 604 Records. Indeed, Nickelback fans will find a lot to love in Theory Of A Deadman, but the band’s established an identity all their own, with four albums that went platinum in Canada (and one platinum in the States), leading to singles like “Nothing Could Come Between Us,” “Santa Monica” and recent chart-toppers “Lowlife” and “Hurricane,” also from 2011's "The Truth Is…." Since that album, the band’s been a bit quiet, but they’re currently gearing up for another album, which will mean another tour and another chance to see a great night of truly solid rock and roll.
