In Theory (band)

In Theory (band)

In Theory was a band from Los Angeles, California, U.S.. The band originally consisted of friends Theo Gersht (guitar, vocals), Avromie Summers (lead guitar), Sam White (bass guitar), and Aaron Revivo (drums). [1] Shortly before the release of the band's 2009 release, This is IT, Zak St. John replaced Aaron Revivo on drums although the album cover still features Aaron presumptively since Aaron's departure was near to the release date.

In Theory's music is centered on energetic punk drum beats, thick distorted guitars and pop-flavored melodies.

During their first incarnation, the group issued a debut self-titled CD in 2005 titled 'We're Better Live'.

The CD featured twelve live studio songs.

In 2009 band recorded their debut studio album This is It, which was produced by platinum producer Barry Fasman (Air Supply, The Kids from "Fame", Melissa Manchester, Diana Ross). [2] This is It continued in a similar vein and got mixed reviews from critics. The band was both hailed and criticized for its youthful themes and content, such as 'Love Me or Leave Me', a song inspired by episodes of The OC.

The band was the first and remains to be one of few bands in the world to be sponsored by the exclusive guitar manufacture RKS Guitars.

[1] Other artists sponsored by RKS Guitars include Dave Mason, Rick Springfield, Keith Richards and Ron Wood (currently of Rolling Stones), and Moby. [3] The band was also represented by the TKO organization. [1]

The band played their final show on August 21, 2009 at Hollywood's Key Club, in California. [4]

As of the present the band has never officially acknowledged that they officially broke up or went on hiatus.

The band's Myspace page is still up with music and links to purchase the band's album.
