Theory of a Deadman, Pop Evil and Stellar Revival plot 2012 North American tour

Get your rock hats on (granted there are such items as “rock hats”) because Canadian hard rock band Theory of a Deadman have announced their latest headlining U.S. tour, and they’re taking Michigan’s Pop Evil and Miami’s Stellar Revival along for the ride. The jaunt is scheduled to kick off April 9 in Florida and run through May 11 in Illinois.

Theory of a Deadman’s new single, “Hurricane,” reached rock radio airwaves this week, and the ballad shows the softer side of the usually rough-and-tough rockers. Frontman Tyler Connolly says it’s typical for Theory to have songs that hit two extremes. “We have two different sides,” Connolly previously told Audio Ink Radio. “Some are fun songs about relationship breakups, like ‘Bad Girlfriend’ and ‘Hate My Life.’ Then, there are some beautiful ballads about falling in love.

“I have two brains when it comes to lyrical writing: one is just trying to write a beautiful song that means a lot to me, and the other is writing a song that’s like a punch. It’s like, ‘Geez. That guy really says what he feels.’”

Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public beginning Feb. 3 and to the group’s fan club starting Feb. 1. Find the whole roster, below. Note: If your city is missing from the lineup, don’t freak out, because Theory promise to announce more dates soon.
