Multi-platinum band THEORY (Theory Of A Deadman) has released “World Keeps Spinning,” the latest track off their forthcoming studio album, Say Nothing, out next Friday, January 31st via Atlantic Records. The evocative song written by lead vocalist Tyler Connolly is a profound autobiographical track about depression and anxiety. PRESS HERE to listen to “World Keeps Spinning,” which first premiered on MXDWN. On Say NothingTHEORY is speaking up through timely lyrical commentary that finds the band’s finger on the pulse of the current climate and the issues that our society is grappling with today, threaded together with a message that’s both a cautionary warning and a hopeful wish for our collective future.

“One of the most personal songs I’ve ever written, ‘World Keeps Spinning’ discusses the battle with depression and anxiety, and the constant struggle between feeling great and feeling like ‘what’s the point,'” shares Connolly. “This is a song a lot of people are going to relate to.”

Say Nothing is available for pre-order at all DSPs and each pre-order includes instant downloads of previously released tracks “History of Violence,” “Say Nothing,” “Strangers,” and “World Keeps Spinning.” PRESS HERE to pre-order Say Nothing; album and bundle packages are also available at the official THEORY webstore.

The album’s lead single “History of Violence,” which has already racked up more than 4 million collective streams and is currently #4 at Active Rock Radio, is a powerful song that turns the tables on a story of domestic violence. PRESS HERE to watch the gripping video, illustrating a searing snapshot of a woman enduring an abusive husband as she plans to fight back, eventually ending up in jail but free of her abuser. THEORY has been encouraging anyone affected by domestic abuse to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) for help. For their upcoming U.S. tour, THEORY has also partnered with PLUS1 to donate $1 from every ticket sold to organizations dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse.

Peeling back the layers of THEORY‘s depth and breadth like never before, Say Nothing, recorded in London with producer Martin Terefe [Jason Mraz, Yungblud], is a continuation of their musical and thematic evolution, displaying the band’s powerful storytelling in full force and introducing fresh sounds and sonics. With undeniable anthems, scorching songcraft, experimental vision, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and clever pop ambition, THEORY explores domestic violence, racism, the divisiveness in American politics, anxiety and depression, and more on the 10-track album, the band’s seventh studio album. Title track Say Nothing is a stark, emotional song about a communication breakdown in a relationship that ultimately leads to its demise. Addressing the current tense state of American politics and the divisive nature of our culture, Strangers strikes a chord with its thought-provoking prose, calling out how nasty it has become between those with differing political affiliations and our society’s increasing inability to openly listen and relate to one another.

In support of the new album, THEORY will spend the first half of the year on the road, beginning with a month-long outing throughout Canada commencing January 31st in their hometown of Vancouver with the first of two nights at The Commodore Ballroom to coincide with the release of Say Nothing. Starting April 9th at the newly announced Brooklyn Bowl NashvilleTHEORY will kick off their U.S. headlining cross-country spring tour featuring special guest 10 Years.
