Bad Wolves release music video for hit song Sober!
Global rock sensation Bad Wolves release the official music video for the hit track Sober, from their sophomore album N.A.T.I.O.N. The song defined the direction of not just the band as a whole, but of vocalist Tommy Vext himself.
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.
The song’s powerful, somber melodic undertones set the stage for Vext’s story of ruinous romantic and family relationships, steeped in addiction and self-desecration, that finds recovery possible for those who can stay the course.
“This song was a unique opportunity to talk about addiction not only from the perspective of the addict but also from the perspective of their loved ones. The message is very different from traditional songs that seem to always perpetuate a mentality of self victimization which is exactly the kind of misguided thinking that perpetuates the mental obsessive side of alcoholism & addiction. In the end the moral of the story is about holding on to not giving up on ourselves or the people who are trying – who are really, really trying to make and better themselves,” says Tommy Vext.
Sober will be the next track off of Bad Wolves’ sophomore album N.A.T.I.O.N, that goes to radio. Their current single, Killing Me Slowly is presently at #2 at rock radio and well on its way to becoming the band’s fourth consecutive chart topping single.
Kicking off 2020 in style, the band will be joining Five Finger Death Punch, with special guests Megadeth, for their winter European tour, from January 22nd in Stockholm, Sweden, through Thursday, February 20th in Budapest, Hungary.
