Canadian rockers Theory Of A Dead Man have announced details of their new album, Wake Up Call, the follow-up to 2014’s Savages.

They’ve also released a video for Rx, an atmospheric piece of acoustic pop-rock that examines America’s problem with opioid addiction.

Wake Up Call was recorded in London with producer Martin Terefe, who’s previously worked with the likes of Christina Aguilera, James Blunt and Ron Sexsmith.

“Progress is impossible without change,” say the band. “And those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. Our new record, Wake Up Call reflects a positive change in our sound moving forward. We created this record from a place of complete freedom.

“It felt like a natural one, as well. This is a new chapter for us and the live shows will reflect that. Visually and musically we’re gonna step it up and are so excited for our fans to see and hear the new Theory.”

Wake Up Call is released on October 27, but is available to pre-order now. The band are currently on tour in the US (dates below). Tickets are on sale now.
