THEORY is back with a new album called Say Nothing, continuing on their path of social commentary that propelled them to massive mainstream success with their previous album, featuring “Rx (Medicate)”.
Say Nothing features lead single “History of Violence,” a powerful story of domestic violence, which has already racked up more than 4 million collective streams and is currently #4 at Active Rock Radio and rising. Telling a gripping story that turns the tables on domestic violence, the video for “History of Violence” illustrates 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. PRESS HERE to watch the video. THEORY has been encouraging anyone affected by domestic violence to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for help.
On Say Nothing, their seventh and most honest album, THEORY 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. Recorded in London with producer Martin Terefe [Jason Mraz, Yungblud], Say Nothing 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.
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.

The title track “Say Nothing,” the latest release off the album, is a stark, emotional song about a communication breakdown in a relationship that ultimately leads to its demise.

Elsewhere on the forthcoming album, “World Keeps Spinning” is an autobiographical track written by lead vocalist Tyler Connolly about depression and anxiety and “White Boy” is about racism in America, inspired by the terrible tragedy that took place Charlottesville.
