In this shot we are rehearsing the String Theory concert with arranger and conductor David Campbell, last week we were able to share the show live with fans for the first time in it’s entirety, still so much more ahead this year, we hope to see you at a concert soon!


Last week, we played String Theory in its entirety for the first time. Actually, we played it twice. First in Pittsburgh, PA and then at Wolf Trap in VA. It was over the top!  This show is not like anything we have done. If you need proof, it has an intermission!  The interaction with the crowd is also really different. One part is that the symphony compels you to listen in a new way, you have to pay attention to hear all of their parts, the other part is the songs. String Theory builds slowly, it takes three or four songs to get up to full speed and it has more than one quiet slow moment, but every song is important to the story and by the end, you really feel ready to sing and clap and add your voice to the growing choir. The response from crowds so far have been everything we hoped for.

Speaking of songs, we are a few weeks into mixing the String Theory album. It is interesting how difficult it can be to find the right balance with so many parts attempting to fill the same space, but when each song finally reaches completion it is pretty magical. We just completed Yearbook, and it might have taken 20+ years, but we really gotta find out what happens to this Johnny kid.

We are playing two shows this weekend.  Since these are not String Theory concerts, it will be a great change of pace to let our hair down and just play a rock show. Hope to see you all in Indiana and Wisconsin.

String Theory brings together an exciting collaboration of song craftmanship and symphonic spectacle framing the established Grammy nominated multi platinum pop-rock trio’s music through a special symphonic collaboration with academy award winning composer and arranger David Campbell. The 22 song double album spans the bands career including some of their best known material (MmmBop, Where’s The Love, This Time Around, I Was Born and more) alongside brand new or never released to the public songs (Reaching For The Sky, Battle Cry, Breaktown, No Rest For The Weary) which tell a story of aspiration, despair, fortitude and ultimately a return to optimism.

The Album, features brand new and rearranged recordings of 22 songs with the full symphonic orchestration highlighting the bands music and craftsmanship on a scale never done before.

Gold, Silver & Deluxe packages are available to pre-order now.


String Theory is the next frontier for HANSON, telling a story of aspiration and fortitude against the odds. The music resonates with authenticity, coming from a group whose signature is never to chase trends, but instead to stay focused on their melodic craftsmanship, establishing themselves as one of the few artists of their generation able to continually reinvent and reimagine their music, which has helped them to maintain an active global fanbase over 25 years after their founding.
