For the Townsman
One of Canada’s top rock bands will be making a stop in Cranbrook on July 29.
Theory of a Deadman is a platinum selling, Juno Award winning, Canadian hard rock band that became the first act to sign with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s 604 Records in 2001.
Since that time the group has amassed an impressive string of awards and smash hits. In 2003 they won a Juno for Best New Group in Canada, and in 2009 their third of five studio albums received the Western Canadian Music Award for Top Rock Recording of the year. That album contained the m ainstream rock radio smash “Bad Girlfriend” as well as “So Happy” and “By the Way”.
Most recently their fourth album, 2011’s “The Truth Is,” landed in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Albums Chart upon its debut, while topping the “Top Hard Rock Albums”, “Top Alternative Albums”, and “Top Hard Rock Albums” charts.
In addition, it spawned the No. 1 radio hit “Lowlife”, which ruled rock radio for weeks.
In 2014 the band released the album “Savages” on Roadrunner Records/604. “We wanted to give fans a great Theory of a Deadman record», said lead singer Tyler Connolly. “We owed them this album. It’s completely real, unrestrained and unbridled. We want their acceptance above all. This record was for the fans, and we are all extremely proud of it.” The song “Panic Room” from the album served as the theme song for WWE’s October pay-per-view Hell in a Cell.
On April 28 of this year the band released a five-track acoustic EP titled “Angel”, which has received rave reviews from critics. Since the band’s inception, Theory of a Deadman has toured with many a familiar name in the rock world including, Motley Crue, Alter Bridge, Stone Sour, Godsmack and Daughtry, just to name a few.
