“SaVages” is heralded by the fiery new single, “Drown,” a snippet of which can be heard now in a video teaser streaming at www.theoryofadeadman.com. Produced by longtime collaborator Howard Benson (Halestorm, My Chemical Romance), the single arrives at multi-format rock radio outlets across the country on April 22nd, the same day the track goes on sale on iTunes.
Tyler Connolly, vocalist and guitarist of Theory Of A Deadman commented, “We went back to where we belong on this record, back to the angst, back to the darkness. We veered off the road a bit on this one but it took us right to where we needed to be.” Connolly expanded further on the band’s inspiration behind “Drown” stating, “‘Drown’ is about being alone, the feeling of being washed away and left to your own devices. We’ve all felt that way at some point in our lives; unable to stay afloat, we sink to the bottom which always seems easier in the end than fighting your way back to the surface.”
“THE TRUTH IS…” made an explosive top 10 debut into the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its initial 2011 release while also coming in at #1 on the “Top Rock Albums,” “Top Alternative Albums,” and “Top Hard Rock Albums” charts. The album – Theory Of A Deadman’s fourth – yielded a series of multi-format radio blockbusters, including “Bitch Came Back,” “Hurricane,” and the #1 smash, “Lowlife,” which spent three consecutive weeks at #1 on Rock radio airplay charts nationwide.
For more than a decade, Theory Of A Deadman has been among the most distinctive and popular bands in hard rock history, combining frank, earnest lyricism and extraordinary melodies with massive power and electrifying dynamics.
