Long-running Canadian rockers Theory Of A Deadman are on the road on their “Summer Savages” tour. Although no strangers to big festivals and massive crowds, the band operates best in a club, where they can still see every face from the stage. This lets them connect their earnest, heartfelt jams in a more personal way that has seen their rabid fans cling to them in support. Although the tour bears the seal of their last full-length, 2014’s Savages (Roadrunner), the band is also out supporting their recent digital only acoustic EP Angel. Playing a career spanning set, the band has long known their secret sauce to their fans is mixing up their hits and a few ballads with their heavier fare. Captured here at The Livewire in Scottsdale Arizona, you can see the band is at their best when it’s just them, the stage and the people with few distractions.
