Theory of a Deadman, 'Lowlife' -- New Song

Roadrunner

Theory of a Deadman have released 'Lowlife,' the first single from Vancouver rock band's fourth studio album, 'The Truth Is...,' due out on July 12.

The song is a rock anthem extolling the virtues of being a "lowlife." Frontman Tyler Connolly sings: "Cause I'm a lowlife, and I'm loving it / I got the whole damn world in the palm of my hands / I'm a lowlife, so f---ing deal with it / No you can't change something that you don't understand."

According to Connolly, the Howard Benson-produced follow-up to 2008's 'Scars & Souvenirs' doesn't stray too far from the band's appealing sound. "Musically, not too much changed," he said in a press release. "We had a bit of an epiphany when it came to songwriting, though."

He adds, "We've been a band for over a decade now, and we realized what we're doing makes sense. There was a lot more confidence. I was able to dig in lyrically and be wide open. When I write, I either want to kiss someone on the lips or punch them in the face. Anything in between is boring."

Theory of a Deadman are currently on the road with Stone Sour on the first-annual Avalanche Tour, and are expected to announce summer headlining dates soon.

Until then, you can listen to 'Lowlife' on AOL Radio's New Rock First station.
