Following the indefinite hiatus of IvyBlue/, Deadbotz (real name James Brodie) will be releasing his new studio album "Shadow Theory" on February 18th, 2023.

Influenced by Indie Rock and elements Dance Music Shadow Theory was written and recorded in Morrinsville, Te Aroha, and Hamilton, New Zealand; in secret recording sessions over 2020-2022, the album details his journey through the pandemic years and his subsequent battle with mental health issues and life events within that time. Featuring 11 tracks and 7 guest vocalists from the USA, Argentina, Hungary, and France; Shadow Theory clocks in at 49 Minutes and is the longest album that he has created to date outside of IvyBlue/

"These songs were never meant to be released. To me, this was a therapeutic exercise to express how I was feeling in a very shaky and uncertain period of my life. Unknowingly these songs came from that therapeutic exercise as a blessing and have acted as a vehicle to reconnect with life, faith, family, and the thing I care about the most that I lost sight of during the pandemic and the madness that came with it. I hope this album will connect with you and help you on your own paths too, just like they did for me".

Shadow Theory will be available on CD, Vinyl, and Digital Streaming outlets on February 18th, 2023. Pre-Orders will begin on February 1st, 2023, for all platforms. In the meantime, you can stream the first single from the album "Brightest Star" on Deadbotz's website and on streaming sites from February 1st, 2023.
