March 17, 2023 – Today, multi-platinum rock band Theory Of A Deadman has released their new studio album, Dinosaur, via Roadrunner Records. PRESS HEREto listen. Dinosaur, Theory’s eighth full-length, features their Top 10 Active Rock Radio hit “Dinosaur” and the singles “Ambulance” and “Two Of Us (Stuck)” and marks an overall return to form stylistically for the chart-topping Canadian quartet. Dinosaur is out now digitally and on CD with vinyl available July 28th – PRESS HERE to order.

“It never gets old I tell ya!” shares front man Tyler Connolly.  “Our eighth album Dinosaur is out and we couldn’t be more excited for everyone to hear it in its entirety. Looking forward to playing some new tracks out on the road this year – it’s gonna be great!”

Dinosaur, the follow-up to 2020’s acclaimed album Say Nothing, was produced by Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, YUNGBLUD) and recorded in Sweden at Atlantis Studios, made famous by ABBA. The 10-track collection opens with the anthemic hard-hitting title track “Dinosaur,” which has amassed over 4 million total streams and been featured on various rock playlists across DSPs including Spotify’s Rock Rotation and Top of the Rock, Apple Music’s The New Rock and Breaking Rock, and Amazon Music’s Rock Arena and Fresh Rock. Showcasing Theory’s signature wit, recent single “Two Of Us (Stuck)” takes a hard left from the refrain of the Grover Washington, Jr. and Bill Withers classic “Just The Two Of Us” into a breezy piano-laden breakup bop, “Just the two of us…we couldn’t make it if we tried!” Elsewhere on the new album is the recklessly raucous and righteously catchy party song “Ambulance,” the gritty “Medusa (Stone)” and the aggressive “Get In Line.” Ultimately, Theory Of A Deadman is giving rock ‘n’ roll exactly what it needs once more delivering a barrage of rock anthems on Dinosaur. See below for full track listing.

Theory Of A DeadmanTyler Connolly [lead vocals, guitar], Dave Brenner [guitar, backing vocals], Dean Back [bass], and Joey Dandeneau [drums, backing vocals] — is currently in the middle of their co-headlining Rock Resurrection Tour with Skillet and special guest Saint Asonia. The cross-country trek has been selling out night after night and receiving rave reviews, hailed as “an unforgettable night of phenomenal music,” with Sonic Perspectives pointing out: “Theory of a Deadman reminded [fans] that rock ‘n’ roll is not dead and their live show remains one big celebration.” The Rock Resurrection Tour continues tonight (March 17) in Kansas City and wraps March 26th in Los Angeles at The Wiltern. Theory will be out on the road all year supporting Dinosaur including a spring Canadian tour featuring a mix of headlining shows and dates opening for Disturbed, festival appearances, and a September run throughout the UK.

With sky-high hooks, riffs as thick as a 2×4, rumbling grooves, and a razor-sharp sense of humor, Theory Of A Deadman 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 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 #1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart and garnered a nomination for “Rock Song of the Year” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. The award-winning band’s last studio album Say Nothing, featuring the chart-topping and powerful single “History of Violence,” landed at #2 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart and #3 on the Rock Albums Chart. Theory Of A Deadman’s impressive catalogue has also logged two Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 and amassed more than 1 billion collective streams on Spotify alone and over 700 million views on their official YouTube.
