Breakout rock band Bad Wolves announce their sophomore album, N.A.T.I.O.N., and release date, Friday, October 25th, via Eleven Seven Music. Pre-order HERE and receive an immediate download of tracks “Killing Me Slowly” and “I’ll Be There.”
Bad Wolves have proven to be the unprecedented global breakthrough rock act of 2018 and aim to continue that momentum with N.A.T.I.O.N. The stunning 12-track follow-up to their debut album, Disobey, is a bit of a departure – staying in the same realm musically, but breaking beyond. As vocalist Tommy Vext explains, “We’ve honed it in and really delivered a more focused version of Bad Wolves’ sound. Basically, it’s like pouring steroids on everything we love about the first record to create an album that’s a roller coaster of emotional experience.”
Founding member and drummer John Boecklin adds, “N.A.T.I.O.N. is definitely a big step in the right direction, we’re still evolving. It’s only our second record and I’m very excited about it.”
The band is wrapping up the last stretch of their summer tour with Papa Roach, which ends on Sunday, September 1st, in Las Vegas, Nevada. They will support Five Finger Death Punch on their headlining arena tour, beginning Friday, November 1st, in Las Vegas, through its 28 dates, culminating on Wednesday, December 18th, in Omaha, Nebraska. Tickets and VIP offers are available HERE. Full routing available below.
Bad Wolves consists of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy), 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). They released their debut, Disobey (May 2018), via Eleven Seven Music. The album reached #22 on the Billboard Top 200, #2 on the Hard Rock Chart, #4 on Rock, and #8 on the Top Current Albums Chart. Their global breakout single, “Zombie,” is platinum in the U.S. and Sweden, double platinum in Canada, gold in Australia and IMPALA Diamond in Europe. The track has topped charts worldwide, including the U.S. iTunes overall and rock charts, Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart, while also reigning atop the Active Rock radio chart for three straight weeks. The album yielded the follow-up tracks “Hear Me Now,” featuring label-mate Diamante, and the soaring ballad “Remember When,” which both reached #1 at Active Radio. The official music video for “Zombie,” a tribute to the late singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries and an homage to the original, has garnered over 255 million views across platforms. On June 19th, 2018, Bad Wolves presented a $250,000 check to Dolores O’Riordan’s four children, with a continued promise to donate all of their royalties to the children.
