Bad Wolves Release “If Tomorrow Never Comes” EP

Bad Wolves have released a new EP titled “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” The effort comes with three takes on the title track including the original version from the band’s latest album “Dear Monsters,” an an alternate version featuring Ice Nine Kills frontman Spencer Charnas, and an acoustic version. You can stream the latter two below:

Bad Wolves vocalist Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz commented:

“‘If Tomorrow Never Comes‘ is a song about self-reflection and asking oneself who would show up to your funeral and what would they say about you. It was a lot of fun to incorporate Spencer Charnas’s vocals into the song. We’ve wanted to collaborate with him, and it came out better than we could’ve ever imagined. It’s got an energetic tempo and the message behind it is to remind the listener that none of us are guaranteed to wake up tomorrow so live each day with integrity, no regrets and to be present and treat today like it might be your last. We’re excited for fans to hear our new takes on this song in this new EP.”

Charnas added:

“The history between Ice Nine Kills and Bad Wolves goes way back, so a track together was long overdue. It was a blast to add to an already incredible song with an important message about living for today. I was stoked to hear how the final collaboration came together. Honored to have a part in the history of this killer record as the boys continue their path to dominating modern rock!”

Bad Wolves & Tommy Vext Reach Legal Settlement

According to Billboard, Bad Wolves have officially reached a legal settlement with their ex-frontman Tommy Vext. As a result, the group will be free to release music and tour under the Bad Wolves moniker, while Vext will be free to release new music independently or through a new label.

The two parties issued a joint statement:

“Bad Wolves and its co-founder John Boecklin, alongside their label Better Noise, manager 10th Street Entertainment, and publisher 5-19, have collectively resolved their disputes with Tommy Vext. A partnership can sometimes lead to divorce. Artists have creative differences and argue over songs, credits, and much more; however, if both sides believe in their own talents, they find a path to go their separate ways.

This is a settlement with no winners and no losers; it’s beneficial to everyone in order to move on and bury the hatchet. This is a new beginning and a bright future for all those concerned. We’re all excited to get back to what’s important, and that’s the music. Bad Wolves and Tommy wish each other the best going forward, and ask that their fans respect this decision.”

As previously reported, Better Noise Music previously sued Vext for copyright infringement after he allegedly posted unreleased music videos and recordings without permission. The lawsuit came after the singer filed his own lawsuit against Better Noise CEO Allen Kovac. In that complaint, Vext claimed that the manager tried to have him removed from Bad Wolves due to his right-wing and conspiracy theory beliefs. He also claimed that Kovac tried to purchase the Bad Wolves trademarks from him and that he tried to get radio and streaming services to stop playing the group’s songs in an effort to cancel his music career. He also accused Kovac of using racial slurs.

For his part, Kovac denied the allegations saying that “Vext, a self-proclaimed QAnon supporter, has dragged us into a ridiculous, unfounded narrative that falsely paints him as a victim.” The band also had some choice words for the frontman saying “desperate people do desperate things

Bad Wolves Premiere “If Tomorrow Never Comes” Music Video

Five Finger Death Punch Frontman Ivan Moody On Ex-Bad Wolves Singer Tommy Vext: “This Dude’s A Waste Of My Time”

Back in 2017, ex-Bad Wolves singer filled in for Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody during some shows in Europe. However, in the years since, Vext has continuously caused controversy due to various abuse allegations and his right-wing and conspiracy theory beliefs. Now, during some recent Instagram Live sessions, Moody shared his thoughts on Vext, saying that he is “a waste of [his] time.”

Moody said the following:

“Am I still friendly with Tommy Vext? Friendly? Yes… Yes. Friends? I’m not sure if we ever were anymore. Listen, I’m not going to get too far into it, but I don’t understand people that believe half what they say and say half what they believe. I just don’t get where politics got so massively involved with the kid. I think he got a little taste of it and the love that comes with picking a side and, in my opinion, got stuck. And, I’ve said this actually, that I wish he would just come out and say, ‘Listen, I fucked up.'”

“The thing about it is, and if you want the truth, is that… I’ve been friends with Doc [Coyle] and John [Boecklin] from Bad Wolves for almost 20 years… So for me, that relationship goes deeper…. That whole collective, they’re fucking rad people, man. And so when I hear about [Coyle] getting choked the fuck out over something really minor, no.”

“I watched something of him on stage where he’s just going off. [Impersonating Vext] ‘You don’t fucking know, man…’ I’m just like, ‘Play a song! Play a fucking song.’ Write it down, put it into script and make music, which is what people are fucking paying for you to do!”

He also added the following in a separate Q&A session:

“This dude’s a waste of my time, I don’t know why you guys keep bringing him up. He’s more worried about me than I am him… And P.S., the reason I don’t talk shit online, and I don’t need to, is because if I have a fucking problem with somebody, I’ll just go to their fucking house. I’ll show up and we can talk. Really talk… I’ve got no time for bullshit, man, and I ain’t tryna make anyone popular by giving them my fucking yes or no. Suck it.”
