Theory Of A Deadman are preparing to release their new album 'The Truth Is...' on July 12th, the follow up to the band’s highly successful 2008 release Scars & Souvenirs.  Despite their last albums breakout success, guitarist Dave Brenner says the band was ready to deal with the pressure of following up a highly successful album.

“We did feel some pressure to repeat,” admitted Brenner in a recent interview with Alternative Addiction.  “But I think we like that [pressure], its kind of like a professional athlete, what makes a professional athlete a professional is their ability to perform under pressure.  That’s sort of the way we look at it- if we wanna be a successful band we need to be able to perform under the pressure of following up a successful album with another great album.”

In order to achieve their goal, Brenner says the band challenged themselves, and pushed beyond their usual boundaries.

“I think with a lot of bands, they get comfortable with their level of success, but for us its always about challenging and pushing ourselves,” explained Brenner, who recorded the album with his bandmates in two phases.  “We wrote seven or eight songs, showed them to the label, and they loved them so we hit the studio, meanwhile still doing some writing.  Then we went back in later and recorded five more, and something about the timing, for some reason it was just a really natural feeling record.”

The first single from 'The Truth Is...' is a track called "Lowlife," which is available now on iTunes and other digital retailers.
