How did the band get its start?
While I was in a band called Devil Driver, I started writing music for a project that was unnamed at the time, around 2013. I knew that I wanted to leave Devil Driver and start my own thing. So, it was me, and then Chris Kane got involved, and Max Karon. It was the three of us for quite some time writing music, trying to formulate a sound that wasn’t derivative of what I had already done. Eventually we found a singer in 2017 and signed in 2018
What makes Bad Wolves unique?
Our versatility and heaviness. In 2018 we were doing a lot of heavier sounds but then as we kept going we found a cool niche with very down-tuned guitars and very melodic, borderline pop choruses and we further experimented with the melodic side of the band. There’s a lot of technicality mixed in with traditional rock radio sounds. I think that formula is becoming more known, almost expected now. We started out with the purpose of starting a heavy-metal band with a lot of heavy, heavy sounds, with not much screaming, that was the goal. This is what separates Bad Wolves, a lot of heavy riffs with no screaming
What’s the story behind the new album “Die About It”
The story behind the album is: fuck everybody, yeah we got a new singer, get over it. If you’re gonna cry about it, fuckin’ die about it. There is a part of me that enjoys the other narrative of what “Die About It” can mean to someone and to me, if you’re going to go for something then you might as well go all the way and die about it. Be prepared to take things to that extreme to cross the lines from sanity to insanity for something that you really believe in.
