The release of their third song, “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.” Bad Wolves came to Vext as an opportunity to try his craft again after his stint in Divine Heresy was brought down by his own demons and addictions, a childhood family life to the extent that most nightmares never reach, and an adult existence that took him even deeper into that hell.
Yet, it was a call from another addict, a kid looking for help, that brought Vext off the suicidal edge, literally, and into a life of continued sobriety and service. Vext declared in an August 2018 interview for Psychology Today, titled Tommy Vext and the Deafening Sound of Self-Termination: “Because when we are in that state of self-termination it’s so deafening–the only way to break out of it is to have contact with people who literally have it worse and are still hopeful. And that’s the most powerful thing about altruism. It’s the foundation of my recovery and it’s the fabric of everything I do. I think we’re all here for a reason, and we’re all here for a purpose. Some of us have to find our purpose, and sometimes it’s thrust upon us. . . Such is life.”
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.
