Atlantic Records / 604 Records group has unveiled details of their new album, WAKE UP CALL (see album art / track listing attached).  Set for release on October 27th, WAKE UP CALL features the lead single “,” which is streaming today accompanied by an official music video and an in-depth interview with frontman exclusively via Billboard. Pre-orders for WAKE UP CALL will be available Friday, July 28th at all DSPs and, with all pre-orders receiving an instant grat download of “.”

Recorded with producer Martin Terefe at London’s Kensaltown Studios, WAKE UP CALL finds Theory – (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Brenner (rhythm guitar), Dean Back (bass), and Joey Dandeneau (drums) – extending themselves beyond the easy comforts of complacency to create an album that pushes the songwriting envelope with songs like “,” which takes aim at the opioid epidemic impacting families across North America and “PCH,” which juxtaposes the nostalgia for seemingly endless nights with friends and the bitter realities of life.

Furthermore, Theory has announced a fall headline tour to celebrate WAKE UP CALL which will get underway September 29th at Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Skyway and continue through mid-November (see attached itinerary).  Tickets for all dates will go on sale, Friday, July 28th at 10:00 AM local time.  The band is currently on the road for a string of headline shows and festival dates including Carterville, Illinois’ Moonstock Music Festival (August 19th) and Janesville, Wisconsin’s JJO Sonic Boom (October 1st).  For tickets and more information, please visit

WAKE UP CALL follows 2014’s SAVAGES, which earned Theory their second consecutive Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 and third consecutive #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart. SAVAGES also featured the #1 Rock Radio smash, “Angel,” which is accompanied by an official music now boasting upwards of 10 Million views on Theory’s official YouTube channel.

For more than a decade, Theory has been among the most distinctive and popular bands in hard rock history, combining frank, earnest lyricism and extraordinary melodies with massive power and electrifying dynamics. With singer/songwriter at the helm, the Vancouver-based band has earned a fervent fan following as well as a long line of multi-format hits, among them the #1 Mainstream Rock breakthrough, “” (found on 2008’s RIAA platinum certified SCARS & SOUVENIRS).
