Theory (Theory Of A Deadman) has released their new song “Say Nothing,” the title track from their forthcoming studio album out January 31st on Atlantic Records. Opening with a stripped-down guitar solo, “Say Nothing” is a stark, emotional song about a communication breakdown in a relationship that ultimately leads to its demise. Say Nothing is available for pre-order now at all DSPs and each pre-order includes instant downloads of “Say Nothing,” “Strangers” and “History of Violence.”
“A big issue in a lot of relationships is a lack of communication, myself included,” shares lead vocalist and songwriter Tyler Connolly. “‘Say Nothing’ delves into the maelstrom of a breakup and how frustrating it can be to not tell someone how you really feel.”
“Say Nothing” follows the release of lead single and Top 10 rock hit “History Of Violence” and album track “Strangers,” ushering in a new chapter for Theory. They are speaking up through timely lyrical commentary with their finger on the pulse of the current climate and the issues that our society is grappling with today, threaded together with a message that’s both a cautionary warning and a hopeful wish for our collective future.
With “History of Violence,” a powerful song that turns the tables on a story of domestic violence and has already racked up nearly 4 million collective streams, Theory has been encouraging anyone affected by domestic abuse to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) for help. TheorY has also partnered with PLUS1 to donate $1 from every ticket sold for their upcoming U.S. tour to organizations dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse. Addressing the current tense state of American politics and the divisive nature of our culture, “Strangers” strikes a chord with its thought-provoking prose, calling out how nasty it has become between those with differing political affiliations and our society’s increasing inability to openly listen and relate to one another.
In support of the album, Theory will spend the first half of 2020 on the road, beginning with a month-long outing throughout Canada commencing January 31st in their hometown of Vancouver with the first of two nights at The Commodore Ballroom to coincide with the release of Say Nothing. Starting April 10th, Theory will then kick off their newly announced U.S. headlining cross-country spring tour featuring special guest 10 Years.
