Theory of a Deadman Concert at JCC Apr. 21

Theory of a Deadman has again added Jefferson Community College to the band’s spring tour schedule with a concert in the McVean Center Gymnasium on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. Theory of a Deadman first performed at the College in 2010. Opening for Theory of a Deadman is Michigan-based American rock band, Pop Evil, and Southern rock band, Stellar Revival, of Florida.

Theory of a Deadman kicked off their 2012 tour schedule in February performing at venues in Europe including the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. After the band finishes its international tour, they return to the U.S. for tours lined up through spring including the April concert at JCC.

Honesty is the best policy. Theory of a Deadman adheres to that age old adage on their fourth album, The Truth Is, released in 2011, featuring crowd pleasers Lowlife and Out of My Head. Earlier released albums include Scars & Souvenirs (2008)- special edition (2009), Gasoline (2005), and a self titled album (2002). Four of the band’s songs have made the top 10 hit list on the Mainstream Rock Chart with most successful singles being Bad Girlfriend at #1 and So Happy from their Scars & Souvenirs album.

In addition to hard rock, the band includes traits of other music styles such as metal, country and acoustic elements. In 2005, Theory of a Deadman prepared the entire soundtrack for the adventure videogame, Fahrenheit, also known as Indigo Prophecy.  

Band members are Tyler Connolly, lead vocalist and guitar player; David Brenner, rhythm guitarist; on bass, Dean Back; and drummer, Joey Dandeneau. "I want to make a great song that can help get fans through hard times,” says Tyler Connolly, lead singer of Theory of a Deadman, on the band’s latest released album, The Truth Is. “I want them to take that music with them for the rest of their lives. I'm trying to write songs and change people, make them laugh, smile, or sing along. That's what I'm looking for.”
