"Better The Devil", "Officer Down" and "Shape Shifter", three new songs from BAD WOLVES, can be streamed below. The tracks are taken from the band's debut album, "Disobey", which will be released on May 18 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc will include BAD WOLVES' cover of THE CRANBERRIES' "Zombie", which recently hit No. 1 in multiple countries around the globe.
The hit single was first released by THE CRANBERRIES in 1994, the original track hit No. 1 across the globe, including the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. The song returned to the Top 10 on the U.S. Rock chart shortly after news of Dolores O'Riordan's passing earlier this year.
O'Riordan was slated to record vocals for BAD WOLVES' cover of the track (which she described as "killer") on the day of her passing. The band decided to release the song in her honor with all BAD WOLVES' proceeds going to her children.
BAD WOLVES, which is managed by Zoltan Bathory of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, consists of of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-DIVINE HERESY, SNOT), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DEVILDRIVER), guitarist Doc Coyle (VAGUS NERVE, ex-GOD FORBID), guitarist Chris Cain (BURY YOUR DEAD) and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-IN THIS MOMENT). more
BAD WOLVES have released another new track, "Sober", from their forthcoming sophomore album, "N.A.T.I.O.N.", due out on Friday, October 25 via Eleven Seven Music.
The release of "Sober" defines the direction of not just the band as a whole, but vocalist Tommy Vext himself. The song's powerful, driving percussions set the stage for Vext's story of a ruinous relationship, steeped in addiction and self-desecration, that finds recovery possible for those who can stay the course.
"The song is very personal to me about my recovery," says Vext. "The message is very powerful to not give up on ourselves or the people who are trying — who are really, really trying to make and better themselves."
