The new album features the lead single “Rx (Medicate)” which has ascended the charts to claim the #1 spot at Active Rock Radio in the US and has surpassed ten million streams, with over one million streams this week alone.
“Rx (Medicate) debuted alongside an in-depth interview with frontman Tyler Connolly on Billboard. In conjunction with the track, Theory has also partnered with the non-profit organization, Shatterproof, in an effort to raise awareness about drug addiction and reduce the surrounding stigma.
Recorded with producer Martin Terefe at London’s Kensaltown Studios, WAKE UP CALL finds Theory – Tyler Connolly (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. Proof can be found in songs like “Rx (Medicate),” 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’s fall headline tour to celebrate WAKE UP CALL is currently underway and will continue through mid-November (see itinerary below). Tickets for all remaining dates are on sale now.

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 Tyler Connolly 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, “Bad Girlfriend” (found on 2008’s RIAA platinum certified SCARS & SOUVENIRS).
