Bad Wolves have officially announced their new frontman!
After much speculation, Bad Wolves have announced Tommy Vext’s replacement five months after his departure from the popular rock outfit. The chart-topping band confirmed Vext’s replacement on Wednesday, June 2, via social media, welcoming singer-songwriter and former member of The Acacia Strain, Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz.
Bad Wolves are currently led by co-founding member and drummer John Boecklin, who has honored his commitment to Bad Wolves’ fans by continuing with the group when Vext exited the band in January 2021.
Read the Bad Wolves full statement below.
“We are excited to officially announce that Bad Wolves has a new singer – Daniel “DL” Lasckiewicz. DL is a tremendous songwriter and singer, and we can confidently say that the album we are working on, titled Dear Monsters, is the best Bad Wolves album to date.
DL is one of the most talented and hard-working people we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a team player, a creative force, and overall a great human being who fits perfectly with our BW family. It feels incredible to be surrounded with such positive energy and the music we’ve made is certainly reflective of this new-found optimism and collaborative spirit. This new album shows a more cohesive and unique reflection of the band. There is a lot to prove and expectations are high with a new singer coming in. And we nailed it. The songs speak for themselves, and if you’re a Bad Wolves fan we know you won’t be disappointed.
So much has happened since Tommy publicly quit Bad Wolves a few months ago – and we disagree with the validity of much of what he has said publicly about our parting of ways – but we would prefer to not look back on the past and instead focus on this new chapter. And most importantly, we’d like to let the music speak for itself. Thanks for believing in Bad Wolves and please join us in welcoming DL to the family. We can’t wait for you to hear what’s coming.
DL has carved out an impressive career for himself over the last 15+ years, most notably as a founding member and lead guitarist of metalcore band The Acacia Strain, in which he was a member since 2001-2013. A talented songwriter and producer, he’s also worked on projects with All That Remains, Legion, For the Fallen Dreams, and collaborated with Bad Wolves on their 2019 studio album N.A.T.I.O.N., where the creative relationship with the band started.”
The band is signed to Better Noise Music and are currently recording their third studio album, which will mark their first with DL on vocals. The project is expected to be released later this year.
