Staind with Theory of a Deadman
About The Show
Staind with Theory of a Deadman take the stage for a rock concert in Tunica on May 18, 2014.
Staind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date: STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album. The multi-platinum Massachusetts hard rock band – Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and Johnny "Old School" April – pushed itself to the very brink. There was struggle and strife, but as a result Staind constructed a collection of chaotically melodic songs that hearken back to their 1999 major label debut, Dysfunction, while wielding an instrumental and lyrical prowess that could only be cultivated by 16 years of writing, recording, and touring together.
Along the way, the band forged a melodic musical maelstrom that served as solace for fans of all ages. They sold 15 million albums worldwide, had eight top ten singles across multiple formats with three songs hitting number one, and wrote the most-played rock song of the past decade, "It's Been Awhile." Three out of six albums – Break the Cycle, 14 Shades of Grey, and Chapter V – debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and 2008's The Illusion of Progress peaked at #3.
The songs on STAIND are raw and real. They're heavy and honest. They're pure and powerful. They're everything Staind was always meant to be.
ABOUT THEORY OF A DEADMAN
Honesty is always the best policy. Theory of a Deadman adheres to that age old adage on their fourth album for Roadrunner/604 Records, The Truth Is…
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. “Lowlife" is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. "Hurricane" stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. "Head Above Water" delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms. Theory of a Deadman – Tyler Connolly (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Brenner (rhythm guitar), Dean Back (bass), Joey Dandeneau (drums) – are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, like it or not.
Theory of a Deadman solidified their place at the top of modern hard rock by exceeding Platinum sales with their breakthrough Scars & Souvenirs and with #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit "Bad Girlfriend." At the same time, other singles, "So Happy" and "By The Way" became crowd favorites on tours with everyone from Mötley Crüe and Godsmack to Daughtry and label mates Stone Sour. For The Truth Is… the band stuck to what works best and are taking it to the next level.
