Following a tease on socials earlier this week, Bad Wolves reveal ‘Hear Me Now’ ft. Diamante, out now on Spotify. The surprise duet sees Bad Wolves’ frontman Tommy Vext and Diamante join forces in a powerful display of intertwined vocals on the soaring ballad.
“It is undeniable what Diamante brought to the song as a final touch,” explains Vext of the collaboration. “In retrospect it always felt like ‘Hear Me Now’ was a duet. In the process of recording together, I think we all fell in love with Diamante a little bit. And we think you will too.”
The labelmates will tour extensively in the US this summer on the What’s In Your Head Tour – on sale now! The upcoming tour sees Bad Wolves and From Ashes To New co-headline with Diamante opening each show.
“When Bad Wolves invited me to record ‘Hear Me Now’ I was completely ecstatic and honoured!,” shares Diamante. “I am in love with everything about the song, which makes me even more excited to go on our tour this summer with them and From Ashes To New! Bad Wolves and FATN are both incredible bands, and I cannot wait to hit the road with them in June.”
