Bad Wolves Premiere “Learn To Walk Again” Video

Bad Wolves have premiered a new video for their song “Learn To Walk Again.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “N.A.T.I.O.N.” and it will also be featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming film “The Retaliators.” Tommy Vext commented:

“This song is about changing your life. Myself, the guys in the band and a lot of other people in my life were going through a lot of changes when we wrote this. All of us had been going through these trials and tribulations over the last couple of years and the future was unknown. Sometimes you need to be brought to your knees and be willing to try anything to find your way to where you need to be. ‘Learn To Walk Again‘ isn’t my story, it is OUR story.”

Slipknot, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Etc. Members Guest On New Version Of Sixx:A.M.’s “Maybe It’s Time”

Sixx:A.M. have released a new version of their song “Maybe It’s Time.” The updated version of the track features the following guests: Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch), Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves), Awolnation, and Brantley Gilbert. All participating artists will be donating their royalties to the Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation. On top of that, Better Noise Music are also planning to match the donation.

Sixx:A.M.’s Nikki Sixx (also of Mötley Crüe) said the following:

“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation. The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”

A few of the guests also commented:

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot:

“So, Nikki rang me to see if I’d lend a vocal to ‘Maybe It’s Time.’ After hearing the track for the first time in a while, I was reminded how good it is so I was in! It felt right, all around, giving back to the much-needed Global Recovery Initiative.”

Bad Wolves‘ Tommy Vext:

“Alcoholism and drug addiction are family diseases. They’re the only diseases that everyone is mad at and hurt if you have it. People don’t get upset at you if you get cancer. It’s because with addiction, it affects everyone whose life touches the sufferer.”

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor:

“It’s a real issue… It’s affecting young people more and more every year, so it’s very, very important for all of us to pitch in and do our part, especially some of us who have lived through it…those of us who have survived… it’s the least I can do.”

The new version of “Maybe It’s Time” will be included on the soundtrack to the new film “Sno Babies,” which will be available on on-demand and digital platforms on September 29.

“Kristen and Hannah are best friends – smart, likable and college-bound– and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms, propelling their tight-knit community from disbelief to disaster to, ultimately, hope.”

Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves) Opens Up About Being Bullied & Being Called Racial Slurs As A Kid

Last month, Bad Wolves’ Tommy Vext made headlines after posting a controversial video in which he discussed a conspiracy theory regarding the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and saying that he never “experienced actual racism” in the U.S. However, the frontman soon followed up with a statement saying his comments were “widely misunderstood.” Now, during an appearance on the “High Notes” podcast, Vext opened up about the bullying and racism that he faced as a child:

“I was a fat kid and I used to get teased and made fun of for being fat and I grew up—I’m also mixed race and it was not socially acceptable in the ’90s and early 2000s to be mixed race—so I got bullied until I grew into my body. I used to get picked on. I used to get held down and kids would burn me with cigarettes and lighters and call me the n-word. I never forgot any of that. Most of those people, I got… When I was sixteen I joined the gym and met some guys and they taught me how to work out and I basically kept tabs and beat the shit out of anybody that ever fucked with me as a kid—and pretty violently, I broke some people’s faces… Anger has always been a pretty dark passenger that I struggled with until I got into recovery.”
