THEORY OF A DEADMAN “The Truth Is…” /LP/



The fourth full-length album by Canadian Alternative Rock/Metal band.
Honesty is always the best policy. Theory Of A Deadman adheres to that age old adage on their fourth album. 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. Meanwhile, "The Bitch Came Back" gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. "Hurricane" stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then there's "Head Above Water", which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms. Theory Of A Deadman are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, like it or not.
For "The Truth Is...", Theory Of A Deadman preserved the sound that fans worldwide have grown to love on "Scars & Souvenirs" (2008), "Gasoline" (2005), and "Theory of a Deadman" (2002), while expanding, enhancing, and evolving their approach. The band 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.
Ultimately, "The Truth Is..." stands out as the band's best work to date, and Theory Of A Deadman found this truth...
The first single is "Lowlife", which was released to radio stations on May 17, 2011, went to #1 on the US Rock charts.
In the United States, the album debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 chart selling 38,000 copies. In Canada, the album debuted at #2 on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling 8,500 copies. This is an increase in sales from their previous album, "Scars & Souvenirs", which sold 6,000 copies in its first week.
