Atlantic Records/604 Records recording group Theory of a Deadman has unveiled the details of their forthcoming brand new album, “Wake Up Call.” Set for release on Oct. 27, the record features the lead single “Rx,” available on all streaming partners now and accompanied by an official music video and an in-depth Billboard exclusive interview with frontman Tyler Connolly.

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,” 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.

Furthermore, Theory has announced a fall headline tour to celebrate “Wake Up Call,” which will get underway on Sept. 29th at Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Skyway and continue through mid-November. The band is currently on the road for a string of headlining shows and festival dates, including Carterville, Illinois’ Moonstock Music Festival and Janesville, Wisconsin’s JJO Sonic Boom.

“Wake Up Call” follows 2014’s “Savages,” which earned Theory their second consecutive Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 and third consecutive No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart. “Savages” also featured the No. 1 Rock Radio smash, “Angel,” as well as the companion video, which now boasts close to 10 million views on Theory’s official YouTube channel.

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. 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 No. 1 Mainstream Rock breakthrough “Bad Girlfriend” (found on 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified “Scars & Souvenirs”). In 2001, they became the first act to sign with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s 604 Records imprint. Connolly reportedly slipped a copy of the band’s demo to Kroeger at a post-concert party and the two were soon collaborating on songs together.
