Theory Of A Deadman Announces New Album

Roadrunner recording group Theory Of A Deadman has unveiled details on new album “SaVages,” which arrives everywhere on July 8th.

“SaVages” is heralded by the fiery new single, “Drown,” a snippet of which can be heard below. Produced by longtime collaborator Howard Benson (Halestorm, My Chemical Romance), the single arrives at multi-format rock radio outlets across the country on April 22nd, the same day the track goes on sale on iTunes.

Tyler Connolly, vocalist and guitarist of Theory Of A Deadman commented, “We went back to where we belong on this record, back to the angst, back to the darkness. We veered off the road a bit on this one but it took us right to where we needed to be.”

Connolly expanded further on the band’s inspiration behind “Drown” stating, “‘Drown’ is about being alone, the feeling of being washed away and left to your own devices. We’ve all felt that way at some point in our lives; unable to stay afloat, we sink to the bottom which always seems easier in the end than fighting your way back to the surface.” More...

Roadrunner Bands Talk Supportive Moms

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and Roadrunner Records though it would be nice to let some of the label artists represent for their moms, who supported their kids' musical ambitions early on. Roadrunner asked two simple questions - "Does your mom like/support your band?" and "What's your mom's favorite song by your band?"

Max Cavalera, Sepultura/Nailbomb/Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy: "Yes, my mom was our first big supporter. She let everybody camp in our house. Our house was always full of metal kids. Her favorite song is 'Innerself' [from Sepultura's Beneath the Remains]. I think she likes the lyrics, because it was about when I was living in Brazil and she remembers that period of our life."

Tyler Connolly, Theory of a Deadman: "My mother is a big supporter of our band, of course, and always wants to make sure we wear our seat belts on our tour bus. I don't think she has a favorite song, but always wonders where I got my terrible potty mouth from. We usually roll through her home town once a year and she's the best at wrangling sluts for me. I love my mom."

Phil Demmel, Machine Head: "My mom, being a musician, was supportive of my interest in music from the word go. Her and my father cultivated my 'hobby' doing everything from matching me dollar for dollar on my first guitar, videotaping my earliest gigs at the seediest Bay Area bars/clubs, to standing on stage with me in front of 60,000 people in her native Portugal when we opened for Metallica. She loves our acoustic material. Our songs 'Descend the Shades of NIght' and 'Darkness Within' are favorites." More...

Report

Motley Crue Plays New York's Madison Square Garden

As I approached the outer area of the arena I heard The Last Vegas playing inside and had a choice. It was early, so it was either get a beer, or catch the end of the show. The band sounded nice and loud. The beer tasted great. Maybe next time Vegas.

Theory of a Deadman followed with a short set. Being unfamiliar with this band I found myself comparing each song to other songs. One sounded like Alice in Chains, the next Nickelback, etc. Overall Theory of a Deadman sounded good, and would like to see them in a smaller venue. More...

Motley Crue Management Dismiss "False Rumours"

Tenth Street Entertainment — which represents MÖTLEY CRÜE — has shot down as (at least partially) "blatantly false and completely unfounded" Internet rumors that CRÜE will headline a festival-type tour called "Cruefest", with support from several other artists from the Tenth Street management stable, including BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, SIXX: A.M. and DROWNING POOL. According to Tenth Street, CRÜE's April 15 press conference/announcement in Los Angeles will relate to "a few" (but presumably not all) of the following artists:

MÖTLEY CRÜE
ATREYU
SAVING ABEL
SHINEDOWN
CHEVELLE
APOCALYPTICA
THE EXIES
PUDDLE OF MUDD
STAIND
GODSMACK
DROWNING POOL
THEORY OF DEADMAN
THREE DAYS GRACE
AVENGED SEVENFOLD
SIXX: A.M.
TRAPT
SEETHER
FLYLEAF
BUCKCHERRY
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
RED
BELLE & SEBASTIAN
PETE YORN
THE WALLFLOWERS
3 DOORS DOWN

All four members of CRÜE will be present at the April 15 press conference at a location yet to be determined for what the release hyped as "by far...one of the biggest music announcements of the year!!" The band is also launching a contest in which one grand prize winner from each major city in the country will be flown to Los Angeles to cover the announcement, complete with a chance to interview the band and have the interview broadcast live. Details can be found at the official CRÜE site.
