Bad Wolves share personal video for ‘Remember When’
Bad Wolves has shared a video for the song “Remember When,” from the band’s debut album Disobey. The clip explores Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext’s relationship with his brother. Vext told Kerrang!, “My twin brother is currently serving 17 years for attempted murder — (he) tried to kill me during a home invasion when he was high in 2010. (Testifying against him) was definitely one of the more difficult moments of my life.”
Vext added, “‘Remember When’ kinda goes through a timeline and highlights two people who lived the exact same life and had the exact same hardships and advantages and disadvantages, and who we are ultimately as adults is defined by the choices that we made, and our lives reflect those choices.”
Vext told us that Bad Wolves is capable of writing and performing a diverse range of songs and moods: [“I know a lot of great musicians have been in bands with singers that only scream, and so melody becomes something they’re not gonna do. And then I’ve been in bands where they can’t play as proficiently as metal bands. So it’s kind of nice that we have created this well-rounded kind of group. Not only can we do all this different stuff, we’re all very much, like, into it.”] SOUNDCUE (:20 OC: . . . like, into it.)
Disobey came out in May and debuted at Number 23 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The LP features the band’s massive hit cover of the Cranberries’ “Zombie.”
Earlier this week at their show in New York, Bad Wolves donated $250,000 to the family of late Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, who was slated to record vocals for Bad Wolves’ version of “Zombie” on the day that she died in a London hotel last January.
Bad Wolves is currently on a headlining tour that brings the band to Norfolk, Virginia on Friday (June 22nd).
Starting mid-July, Bad Wolves will join Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin and Nothing More on a lengthy trek that will last through September.
