“‘History of Violence’ tells the sad story of a girl trapped in a life of domestic abuse, leaving her with what she feels is the only way to escape,” explains lead vocalist and songwriter Tyler Connolly. “Even though she’s in jail, it’s still a better place to be than being imprisoned in real life by this man. We’re encouraging anyone affected by domestic violence to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for help: 1-800- 799-7233.” On Say Nothing, THEORY — Tyler Connolly [lead vocals, guitar], Dave Brenner [guitar, backing vocals], Dean Back [bass], and Joey Dandeneau [drums]— is speaking up through undeniable anthems rooted in scorching songcraft, experimental vision, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and clever pop ambition. Recorded in London with producer Martin Terefe [Jason Mraz, Yungblud], the album features timely lyrical commentary on many issues that our society is grappling with today.


Domestic violence, racism, the divisiveness in American politics and more are explored on the 10-track album, which finds THEORY’s finger on the pulse of the current climate threaded together with a message that’s both a cautionary warning and a hopeful wish for our collective future. “I look at the record as a microcosm of our current era,” says Brenner. “It’s a reminder to look inward at what’s happening and what we’re becoming. I hope everyone dives into the words. At the same time, music is still an escape. Maybe we can give the world a little solace and encourage everyone to treat each other better.” Peeling back the layers of THEORY’s depth and breadth like never before, Say Nothing is a continuation of their musical and thematic evolution, displaying the band’s powerful storytelling in full force and introducing fresh sounds and sonics. Album opener “Black Hole In Your Heart”features orchestration set to an arena-ready beat punctuated by creaky guitar.


A pilgrimage to Abbey Road Studios inspired the song “Ted Bundy,” a first-person account about a terribly troubled man who can’t properly love; not even the most beautiful woman can fill that void and change him. “Strangers” strikes a chord with its provocative prose that holds a mirror up to the state of American politics. Elsewhere, a gospel choir kicks off “Quicksand,” adding yet another dimension to Say Nothing’s aural palette. Full tracklisting below.


Ahead of their U.S. and European headlining tour beginning September 27th in Jacksonville, NC, THEORY has announced a Canadian headlining tour in their native country kicking off January 31st in Vancouver with the first of two nights at The Commodore Ballroom to coincide with the release of Say Nothing. Pre-sale tickets are available starting Friday, September 27th with the public on-sale beginning Friday, October 4th at 10am local time. See below for the band’s full list of upcoming tour dates and visit for all ticketing details.


THEORY’s platinum single “Rx (Medicate)” from 2017’s Wake Up Call addressed the opioid epidemic and racked up more than 250 million streams, became their third #1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and received an iHeartRadio Music Award nomination for Rock Song of the Year. Over the course of nearly two decades,  THEORY’s impressive catalogue has earned them several platinum and gold singles, a platinum album, two Top 10 album debuts on the Billboard Top 200, and eight Top Tens on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart.
