Live Nation presets: THEORY Plus special guests Book Here https://www.bristolticketshop.com/events/theory-plus-special-guests With their sixth studio album, Wake Up Call, Theory hit the reset button, diving into a new sound, a new approach, even a new location. Recorded with Martin Terefe at Kensaltown Studios in London, Wake Up Call is defined by a more melodic, intimate style marking a bold move for one of the leading rock bands in the world. Since forming in British Columbia in 2001, Theory of a Deadman— singer and guitarist Tyler Connolly, guitarist Dave Brenner, bassist Dean Back, and drummer Joey Dandeneau—have placed nine songs in the Top 10 on the rock charts, including the Number One hits “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife,” “So Happy,” and “Angel.” Following the success of 2014’s Savages album (which reached the Top Ten on the Hot 100 albums chart and topped both the Alternative and Hard Rock charts), Connolly began writing again, but he was frustrated by what he was hearing. He bought a piano for himself, an instrument he had never played, and he soon discovered that it was unlocking something new. “I started writing songs that felt musically different,” he says. “It opened my mind to different ideas, and I think that was the catapult for where this album went," adding “we really wanted to make something big and very progressive for us."
