Theory Of A Deadman – Tuesday Aug. 22, 9 pm Grandstand Special Concert Ticket
For more than a decade, Theory Of A Deadman has been among the most distinctive and popular bands in hard rock history, combining frank, earnest lyricism and extraordinary melodies with massive power and electrifying dynamics. With singer/songwriter Tyler Connolly at the helm, the Vancouver-based band has earned a fervent fan following as well as a long line of multi-format hits, among them the #1 Mainstream Rock breakthrough, “Bad Girlfriend” (found on 2008’s RIAA platinum certified “SCARS & SOUVENIRS”).
Like any hard rock outfit worth its salt, Theory Of A Deadman has spent much of its existence on the road. In addition to countless headline dates, the band has shared stages on an array of festival tours alongside such like-minded acts as Alter Bridge, Stone Sour, and Mötley Crüe.
Theory Of A Deadman is: Tyler Connolly (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Brenner (rhythm guitar), Dean Back (bass), and Joey Dandeneau (drums).
The Trews – Tuesday Aug. 22, 7 pm Grandstand Special Concert Ticket
East Coast-bred, Toronto-based rockers The Trews who, since the April 2014 release of their universally acclaimed self-titled fifth studio album, have scarcely stopped to take a breath.
For proof, a quick tally of some recent achievements in the following categories…
Touring! Singer/songwriter Colin MacDonald, songwriter/guitarist John-Angus MacDonald and bassist Jack Syperek hopscotched extensively across North America, playing everything from soft-seaters to festival stages. They also supported Supersuckers in the UK last fall.
Awards! An East Coast Music Award for Rock Recording of the Year plus ECMA nominations for Group of the Year, Fans’ Choice Entertainer of the Year and Fans’ Choice Video of the Year. The Trews also received a 2015 Rock Artist of the Year nod from the SiriusXM Indies.
Film! The forthcoming comedy How to Be Deadly, chronicling the guerrilla escapades of (fictional) YouTube sensation Donnie Dumphy, showcases two Trews songs. Keeners will note that director Nik Sexton also helmed the Trews’ wildly successful (and flat-out hilarious) PledgeMusic campaign video which assisted in financing the latest album.
Singles! ‘Under The Sun’ – one of several songs on album The Trews cut with fans in-studio as a reward for their support – is currently tearing up charts nationwide, following in the footsteps of previous TOP 10 Rock singles, ‘What’s Fair is Fair,’ ‘Rise in the Wake’ and ‘New King.’
