Two lauded Canadian hard-rock bands—Theory of a Deadman and Big Wreck—reward their loyal fans during their cross-country winter tour, sharing headlining duties as they take over each arena’s sprawling stage. Vancouver heroes Theory of a Deadman return to the Great White North in an exertive panorama of stadium-sized riffs and hard-rocking party anthems. Like the letter E at an optometrist’s office, the band has grown accustomed to the top of the charts, with mainstream rock hits such as “Lowlife” and “Bad Girlfriend” and the life-affirming sing-along “Hate My Life.” Stuffing kevlar crunch, post-grunge, and rockabilly into its sonic calzone, Theory of a Deadman dazzles fans with seasoned classics and newborn cuts from its latest smash The Truth Is….

After an amiable breakup in 2002 in which the band members vowed to still hang out without it being weird, Big Wreck reconvened to tour in 2010 and released its latest album, Albatross, earlier this year. The title track recalls latter-day Soundgarden with its mournful, light-bending soloing and emotional stomp. Lead singer Ian Thornley, who embarked on his own solo career during Big Wreck’s hiatus, brings back his gravelly tenor to songs such as “Control,” “Ladylike,” and “Knee Deep” as the band undulates between cranked-up riffs and pensive jam sessions behind him.
