HOT OFF THE PRESS Theory On The Road
Posted on February 12, 2008HOT OFF THE US PRESS RELEASE: "Hot on the heels of a spate of early adds at Active (tied with Puddle of Mudd) and Mainstream Rock on KRXQ/Sacramento, KQRC/Kansas City, KILO/Colorado Springs, WXTB/Tampa, KXXR/Minneapolis, and WEBN/Cincinnatti to name a few, Vancouver's Theory of a Deadman have been slated to hit the road with Nickelback for a leg of U.S. summer festival dates from September 5 through the 29th. The tour only serves to raise the profile of Theory of a Deadman, whose self-titled debut is set to hit the streets on September 17th. This album marks the first release from Nickelback's Chad Kroeger and Jonathan Simkin's 604 Records imprint, distributed through Roadrunner Records. The group--TYLER CONNOLLY (vocals/guitar), DAVE BRENNER (guitars), DEAN BACK (bass) and TIM HART (drums)--recorded the album at Vancouver's Greenhouse Studios with Kroeger and Joey Moi (Nickelback, Default) co-producing. In other news, CONNOLLY also appeared on the single and in the video for the Chad Kroeger hit song "Hero" from the Spider-Man (Music From and Inspired By) CD, released April 30 in connection with the blockbuster film. "Hero" was recently nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for "Best Video From A Film." As all this activity swirls around the band, their first single "Nothing Could Come Between Us" continues to build at radio. It's currently the #5 Greatest Gainer on the R&R Active Rock chart and the #4 Greatest Gainer on R&R's Rock chart. In a recent Billboard review of the song, Chuck Taylor noted: "Think of "Nothing Could Come Between Us" as a well-tuned blend of the best elements of Tantric, Days Of The New, Creed, Stone Temple Pilots, and Nickelback, with an undercurrent of blues…It could easily become an anthem for those who want to ditch their insignificant others pronto."
