Theory Of A Deadman
Theory of a Deadman had a simple but daunting goal for its third album: to make the greatest record possible.
"I always try to remind the guys and myself that there are 20 bands lined up behind us just waiting for a chance to take our place," says frontman Tyler Connolly. "So that means we had to go in there and make a great record." With Scars & Souvenirs, the Vancouver trio has hit its mark.
The balanced 13-track effort is the polished and passionate testament to seven years of hard work, heavy touring and diligent attention to its craft. From the swirling grind of "By the Way" to the nasty snarl of "Crutch" to the soaring melodicism of "Not Meant to Be" and "Wait For Me," Scars & Souvenirs is a broad-reaching endeavor that puts Connolly, guitarist Dave Brenner and bassist Dean Back high in the rock pantheon, achieving creative growth without sacrificing the hard-hitting power that got them here in the first place.
Aranda is an experience. The wall-shaking Oklahoma brothers are no strangers to the music scene. Dameon and Gabe Aranda have been writing, singing, and performing together for over a decade, learning from the likes of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Jimi Hendrix.
Through strong dedication and friendly rivalry, Gabe and Dameon perfected their onstage presence. "We made each other better by having that competitive spirit," Gabe says. "We don't think about who's the better singer. We think about who is going to sound better on this part, whether this song is screaming for a wailer, a rock singer, or a more soulful voice."
Guitarist Dameon says that every time he learned a few new chords, he would use them to write a song. "We want to go out there with high energy, keep rocking, keep everybody entertained. We want to involve our audience and make it fun," he says. "Our hope is that you'll keep coming back for more."
