Multi-platinum rocker Theory Of A Deadman will release their eighth studio album, “Dinosaur”, on March 17th via Roadrunner Records.
The track “Dinosaur” is currently at #12 on the Top 10 at U.S. Active Rock Radio and quickly approaching the Top 10. This album marks a return to form stylistically while growing and learning to solidify their place at the top of modern hard rock. Ultimately “Dinosaur” stands out as the band’s best work to date because it’s about a shared experience with the audience. Theory Of A Deadman featuring Tyler Connolly [lead vocals, guitar], Dave Brenner [guitar, backing vocals], Dean Back [bass], and Joey Dandeneau [drums, backing vocals] have found their groove. This hard-hitting album’s ten songs riffs lumber ahead with the swaggering force of a T-Rex and the grace of a Brontosaurus.
While the singles “Dinosaur” and “Ambulance” hit you like a freight train, their newest single, “Two Of Us (Stuck),” slows things down to showcase the band’s signature wit on a breezy piano-laden breakup bop that takes a hard left from the refrain of the Grover Washington Jr. and Bill Withers classic “Just The Two Of Us.” Ultimately, Theory Of A Deadman is giving rock n’ roll precisely what it needs to deliver a barrage of rock anthems.
“Dinosaur” is available to pre-order now at THIS LOCATION.
Theory Of A Deadman will perform tracks off “Dinosaur” for audiences worldwide throughout the year. Following a run of dates this winter in New Zealand and Australia, the band teams up with Skillet for the co-headlining Rock Resurrection Tour. The 25-date trek, also featuring support from Saint Asonia, crosses the U.S. from February 17th through March 26th, where it wraps at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.

“‘Dinosaur’ takes us back to our roots with this riff-driven rocker,” shares Connolly. “To me, it feels like it could fit on any of our albums, but I will say if you like the old THEORY OF A DEADMAN, you’ll love the new THEORY OF A DEADMAN.”
“Rock is where we made our bed for all these years,” adds guitarist Dave Brenner. “It’s been a while since we had an up-tempo in-your-face track like this — and it felt good.”
With sky-high hooks, riffs as thick as a 2×4, rumbling grooves, and a razor-sharp sense of humor, THEORY OF A DEADMAN — Tyler Connolly (lead vocals, guitar),Dave Brenner (guitar, backing vocals),Dean Back (bass),and Joey Dandeneau (drums, backing vocals) — have quietly persisted as an unapologetic, unbreakable, and undeniable hard rock force with major multi-platinum hits and countless sold-out shows in each of the past two decades. Jamming together in basements throughout high school, the band burst out of their small hometown of North Delta, British Columbia with the self-titled “Theory Of A Deadman” during 2002.
In addition to the double-platinum breakthrough album “Scars & Souvenirs” (2008) and gold-certified “The Truth Is…” (2011),THEORY OF A DEADMAN have notched a procession of hits, including the gold-certified “All Or Nothing”, “Bitch Came Back” and “Lowlife”, platinum-certified “Angel”, “Hate My Life” and “Not Meant To Be”, double-platinum “Bad Girlfriend” and triple-platinum “RX (Medicate)”. As the biggest smash of their career thus far, the latter hit, off their 2017 album “Wake Up Call”, marked their third No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and garnered a nomination for “Rock Song Of The Year” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Their impressive catalogue has also logged two Top 10 debuts on the Billboard 200 and amassed more than one billion collective streams on Spotify alone and over 675 million views on their official YouTube. In 2020, the award-winning band’s seventh studio album, “Say Nothing”, landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Alternative Albums chart and No. 3 on the Rock Albums chart. Plus, the album, featuring the chart-topping and powerful single “History Of Violence”, earned praise from American Songwriter, Billboard, Alternative Press and Classic Rock magazine which awarded it four out of five stars.
