Theory Of A Deadman back in the dark

Theory Of A Deadman say they've gone back to their roots for upcoming fifth album SaVages.

It’s set for launch on July 8 via Roadrunner, and the band have offered a taster in the form of a clip from lead track Drown below.

Frontoman Tyler Connolly says: “We went back to where we belong on this record – back to the angst, back to the darkness. We veered off the road a bit but it took us right to where we needed to be.”

He says of Drown: “It’s about being alone; the feeling of being washed away and left to your own devices. We’ve all felt that way – unable to stay afloat, we sink to the bottom, which always seems easier than fighting back to the surface.”

Theory Of A Deadman return to the UK in October with Black Stone Cherry and Airbourne:

Oct 26: Glasgow Hydro

Oct 27: Sheffield Motorpoint Arena

Oct 28: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena

Oct 30: Birmingham LG Arena

Oct 31: Manchester Phones 4U Arena

Nov 01: London Wembley Arena

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
