*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
CASINO NOVA SCOTIA
Theory of a Deadman
LIVE AT THE SCHOONER SHOWROOM
Friday, February 21, 2020
September 25, 2019 - Halifax, Nova Scotia. – Casino Nova Scotia is pleased to announce Theory of a Deadman will
be back to play the Schooner Showroom for one show only on February 21, 2020.
Multi-platinum band Theory Of A Deadman has announced the release of their seventh studio album, Say Nothing,
out January 31st via Atlantic Records. Lead single “History Of Violence” – which turns the tables on a story of
domestic violence - is out now along with the gripping music video. Directed by Sam Sulam, the visual for “History Of Violence” illustrates a searing
snapshot of a woman enduring an abusive husband as she plans to fight back, eventually ending up in jail but free of
her abuser. Say Nothing is available for pre-order now at all DSPs and each pre-order will include an instant
download of “History of Violence”. Album and bundle packages are available at the official THEORY
“‘History of Violence’ tells the sad story of a girl trapped in a life of domestic abuse, leaving her with what she feels
is the only way to escape,” explains lead vocalist and songwriter Tyler Connolly. “Even though she’s in jail, it’s still
a better place to be than being imprisoned in real life by this man. We’re encouraging anyone affected by domestic
violence to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for help: 1-800-799-7233.”
On Say Nothing, THEORY — Tyler Connolly [lead vocals, guitar], Dave Brenner [guitar, backing vocals], Dean
Back [bass], and Joey Dandeneau [drums]— is speaking up through undeniable anthems rooted in scorching
songcraft, experimental vision, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and clever pop ambition. Recorded in London with producer
Martin Terefe [Jason Mraz, Yungblud], the album features timely lyrical commentary on many issues that our
society is grappling with today. Domestic violence, racism, the divisiveness in American politics and more are
explored on the 10-track album, which finds THEORY’s finger on the pulse of the current climate threaded together
with a message that’s both a cautionary warning and a hopeful wish for our collective future.
“I look at the record as a microcosm of our current era,” says Brenner. “It’s a reminder to look inward at what’s
happening and what we’re becoming. I hope everyone dives into the words. At the same time, music is still an escape.
Maybe we can give the world a little solace and encourage everyone to treat each other better.”
Peeling back the layers of THEORY’s depth and breadth like never before, Say Nothing is a continuation of their
musical and thematic evolution, displaying the band’s powerful storytelling in full force and introducing fresh sounds
and sonics. Album opener “Black Hole Of Your Heart”features orchestration set to an arena-ready beat punctuated
by creaky guitar. A pilgrimage to Abbey Road Studios inspired the song “Ted Bundy,” a first-person account about
a terribly troubled man who can’t properly love; not even the most beautiful woman can fill that void and change
him. “Strangers” strikes a chord with its provocative prose that holds a mirror up to the state of American politics.
Elsewhere, a gospel choir kicks off “Quicksand,” adding yet another dimension to Say Nothing’s aural palette. Full
Ahead of their U.S. and European headlining tour beginning September 27th in Jacksonville, NC, THEORY has
announced a Canadian headlining tour in their native country kicking off January 31st in Vancouver with the

and received an iHeartRadio Music Award nomination for Rock Song of the Year. Over the course of nearly two
decades, THEORY’s impressive catalogue has earned them several platinum and gold singles, a platinum album,
two Top 10 album debuts on the Billboard Top 200, and eight Top Tens on the Billboard Hot Mainstream
