There was a hurricane in Columbus as Theory of A Deadman stormed the stage at Rock On The Range 2012. Shortly after the band’s Saturday set on the Monster Energy Main Stage, I caught up with frontman Tyler Connolly to chat for a few minutes. We got a chance to talk about the band’s set; Tyler said the crowd was awesome and full of adrenaline. The guys pulled out all the hits plus a cover of Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine.” Well-received by the crowd was the band’s newest single, “Hurricane.” Tyler and I talked about the song, and how it’s a much deeper moment for the band.
Theory of A Deadman have quickly risen to the top of the rock hill. All four Theory albums have charted in the Top 100 on Billboard. Their 2008 album, Scars and Souvenirs, was certified platinum. The band has toured with the likes of Mötley Crüe, Godsmack, Alter Bridge, and Black Stone Cherry. In 2011 they headlined the Carnival of Madness Tour, one of summer’s biggest touring rock festivals every year. Their latest album, 2011’s The Truth Is…, hit #8 on the Billboard Top 200, and #1 on US Rock and US Hard Rock. The album’s fourth and current single, “Hurricane,” is currently making a lot of noise on the radio airwaves.
Theory of A Deadman are currently on a world headlining tour, making several festival appearances on they way. In addition to Rock On The Range, the guys are heading Rocklahoma and Europe’s epic Download Festival. They band will be on tour all spring and summer long.
