theory of a deadman


Let’s just say that at the very least, 2005 was an extremely eventful and busy year for Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman. After releasing their sophomore album Gasoline, it was pretty much non-stop touring for the band, with no signs of slowing down in the near future. As it turns out, a tour bus can be every bit as noisy and chaotic as people make it out to be, and because of that, it’s not always the ideal place for an interview. Nevertheless, Theory bassist Dean Back and I managed to make the best of the situation at hand. We talked for a brief while before the guys had to go and woo the massive crowd of crazy fans and this is what we discussed.

Theory of a Deadman is back with their second full-length release entitled Gasoline. The group’s self-titled first record was released in 2002 and quickly came to receive great reviews everywhere. Songs like “Nothing Can Come Between Us” and “Make Up Your Mind” were instant hits for this band from Vancouver, Canada. The group falls into the musical category of emotional hard rock, and although the y have very similar sound to fellow Canadian band Nickelback, rest assured that there is a distinct difference in sonance which sets the two apart.
