75 stations across the nation could not wait to add Theory of A Deadman's new track "So Happy." The song, sent via digital delivery just two weeks ago, is racing up the charts with adds at over 75 stations; none of them bothering to wait for an official add date. Rock, Modern Rock and Active Rock formats have jumped on board with "So Happy," as it's the #1 most added track at Active Rock radio this week and the #2 most added in the Rock format. "So Happy" is the lead track and first single on Theory's forthcoming Roadrunner Records release, Scars & Souvenirs.
The record is off to a great start. In addition to being the #1 Most Added at Active Rock two weeks in a row, "So Happy" marks Theory's highest ever chart debut in the Top 25 with over 200 spins, making it the #1 most increased song at the format. Mainstream Rock sees the track debuting at #27 with over 250 spins, also most increased at the format. Modern Rock is coming in as a strong supporter as well with over 100 spins, with adds at key stations.
Originally from Vancouver B.C., Theory is set to release Scars & Souvenirs on April 1. It is the follow up to a very successful sophomore album cycle (Gasoline) that included the huge radio hits "Santa Monica," "No Surprise" and "Hello Lonely." The balanced 13-track effort is the polished and passionate testament to seven years of hard work, heavy touring and diligent attention to its craft. From the swirling grinds of "So Happy" to the soaring melodicism of "Not Meant To Be" and "By The Way," Scars & Souvenirs is a broad-reaching endeavor that puts singer/guitarist Tyler Connolly, guitarist Dave Brenner and bassist Dean Back high in the rock pantheon, achieving creative growth without sacrificing the hard-hitting power that got them here in the first place.
