June 29, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

“Complacency is such a disease when you’re in a band,” says Tyler Connolly, singer and guitarist for Vancouver, Canada’s THEORY (Of A Deadman). “People are so afraid to progress, but you have to change—you can’t just write the same song over and over.

Who could fail to find intrigue in seeing and hearing Capsis performing some of his most loved songs?
