Bad Wolves Release “Sacred Kiss” EP

Bad Wolves have released a new EP titled “Sacred Kiss.” The cover art and track listing for that effort can be found below:

“Sacred Kiss” Track Listing:

01. “Sacred Kiss” (feat. Aaron Pauley of Of Mice & Men)
02. “Sacred Kiss” (acoustic version)
03. “Up In Smoke”
04. “The Body”

An official video for a new version of “Sacred Kiss” featuring Of Mice & Men’s Aaron Pauley can be found below. Drummer John Boecklin said the following about that:

“Stoked to have you all hear this collaboration with Aaron Pauley from Of Mice & Men. ‘Sacred Kiss‘ reflects on meeting someone that you quickly fall for and have a preconceived notion of who they are and what it could be, and then quickly realizing it is not what you expected. We made a killer video as well that plays on some of those themes. We had a lot of fun making it. Definitely, our favorite one we have made so far!”

Pauley added:

“I think the song absolutely rips, so I was stoked when the guys reached out to me about doing a new version of it. I really enjoyed recording the song, and had even more fun shooting the video with the guys!”

“The Retaliators” To Be Released In September

“The Retaliators” is officially set to hit theaters on September 14. That movie stars Michael Lombardi (“Rescue Me”), Marc Menchaca (“Ozark”), and Joseph Gatt (“Dumbo”) and it will also include appearances from members of Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Ice Nine Kills, From Ashes To New, and more.

Here’s a synopsis:

“In ‘The Retaliators,’ an upstanding pastor uncovers a dark and twisted underworld as he searches for answers surrounding his daughter’s brutal murder. A high-octane original soundtrack and cameos from some of the biggest names in rock music set the tone as this horror-thriller reveals a game of revenge played using a new set of rules.”

Bad Wolves Premiere New Song “The Body”

Bad Wolves have premiered a new song titled “The Body.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming EP. Drummer John Boecklin commented:

“When we were writing this song we had a goal of trying new things. The slap bass and clavichord instantly was new territory for Bad Wolves. It feels good to know this track sounds like nothing we have ever done before. It’s a fun track that feels like a mix of Faith No More with a dash of Daft Punk. Enjoy!”

Bad Wolves Officially Welcome Guitarist Max Karon To The Band As A Permanent Member

Bad Wolves have officially welcomed Max Karon to the band as their new guitarist. He will be replacing Chris Cain.

The band commented:

“It’s with great excitement that we announce our new permanent guitar player: Max Karon. The funny thing is that Max isn’t new to us, he started the band with founder John Boecklin in 2014 and was a major writer/player on all three Bad Wolves albums. Being a key ingredient to the Bad Wolves sound, this was a no-brainer decision. There is no other person on this earth that would be a better fit for Bad Wolves than Max.”

Karon added:

“Words can hardly express how thrilled and grateful I am for this opportunity, and how right it feels to be here. Having been part of Bad Wolves since the very beginning, I’m so proud to be joining in full. It’s amazing how far this band has come, and I’m so excited and driven to see how far we can go. I’m looking forward to everything about this new chapter. I’ll see you out there!- Max”
