Atlantic Records / 604 Records group Theory Of A Deadman has shared the official video for “Straight Jacket,” which is streaming now on the band’s YouTube channel. The track, featured on their chart-topping new album WAKE UP CALL, is currently Top 25 at Rock Radio and climbing. Theory is also set to kick off their spring headline tour February 16th in San Francisco, CA (see attached itinerary). For up-to-the-minute news and ticket information, please visit www.theoryofadeadman.com.
WAKE UP CALL features the lead single “Rx (Medicate),” which ascended the charts to claim the #1 spot at US Active Rock Radio for five weeks and has surpassed 25 million streams, with over one million streams this week. “Rx (Medicate),” debuted alongside an in-depth interview with frontman Tyler Connolly on Billboard. WAKE UP CALL is available now at all DSPs and www.theoryofadeadman.com.
Recorded with producer Martin Terefe at London’s Kensaltown Studios, WAKE UP CALL finds Theory – Tyler Connolly (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Brenner (rhythm guitar), Dean Back (bass), and Joey Dandeneau (drums) – extending themselves beyond the easy comforts of complacency to create an album that pushes the songwriting envelope with songs like “Rx (Medicate),” which takes aim at the opioid epidemic impacting families across North America and “PCH,” which juxtaposes the nostalgia for seemingly endless nights with friends and the bitter realities of life.
WAKE UP CALL follows 2014’s SAVAGES, which earned Theory their second consecutive Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 and third consecutive #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart. SAVAGES also featured the #1 Rock Radio smash, “Angel,” which is accompanied by an official music now boasting upwards of 10 Million views on Theory’s official YouTube channel.
For more than a decade, Theory 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. With singer/songwriter Tyler Connolly at the helm, the Vancouver-based band has earned a fervent fan following as well as a long line of multi-format hits, among them the #1 Mainstream Rock breakthrough, “Bad Girlfriend” (found on 2008’s RIAA platinum certified SCARS & SOUVENIRS).
