Watch Five Finger Death Punch Prank Fans By Opening Their Set With Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves) On Vocals

During Five Finger Death Punch’s August 31 show in Noblesville, IN, the band decided to prank the crowd by taking the stage with Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves) on vocals instead of frontman Ivan Moody, who ran out shorty after. The funny thing about this is the fact that Vext previously filled in for Moody on the group’s 2017 European tour, following an onstage meltdown.


Bad Wolves Launch Crowdfunding Campaign For New Film

Bad Wolves have launched an Indiegogo campaign in an effort to raise $65,000 to create a new film called “Breaking The Band.” The movie will focus on the group’s “meteoric rise from unknown band to multi platinum status within 6 months.”

Bad Wolves commented:

“Hey guys,

It’s Tommy, John, Doc, Chris, and Kyle from Bad Wolves and we are stoked to share our latest project with you.

We want YOU to be a part of our new movie “Breaking The Band” that we’re going to start shooting very soon!

Historically, many of the world’s most influential bands never got the opportunity to capture their early years in the trenches. Learning the business side of things, dealing with bus breakdowns, production issues, and scheduling demands. Simply because they couldn’t afford to hire a camera crew. So we are turning it over to you, The Wolfpack!

Over the past year, we have experienced a rollercoaster of tragedy and triumph. From the tragic, untimely loss of Dolores O’ Riordan to the triumphant success of our campaign to raising over a quarter million dollars for her children through our rendition of The Cranberries’ classic, intergenerational hit “Zombie”.

Following the single’s global multi-platinum success with our debut album DISOBEY opened doors for us to perform on some of the world’s biggest festivals and play to fans near and far on arena tours with our label mates Five Finger Death Punch and Nothing More, as well as Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, and Three Days Grace.

But what does it really take to break a band? How did we get started and what is day-to-day life in a rising band really like?

Our film will be an uncensored peek into the meteoric rise from unknown band to multi platinum status within 6 months, a fascinating glimpse into the music industry exposing all the sides some will never really admit or want to show, and following us around the world to Europe, the US, and Canada this year.

To show our appreciation for your support, we’ve put together some once-in-a lifetime experiences, exclusive specialty items, and content for our die hard fans who want to be a part of or own a piece of Bad Wolves history!”

Tonight will forever go down as one of the greatest moments I’ve ever had on stage when my mother came out to sing Zombie with me before all our friends and family at PNC Bank Arts center in New Jersey. Momma Vext was the lead vocalist in the church choir every Christmas, so you may say it runs in the family. I love you mom. You’re everything that is best in me. Thank you for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. Thank you for teaching me patience and grace under fire. Thank you for reminding me that life is an occasion when we rise to it. ♥️🙏🏼 #Moms #ToughLadies #BadWolvesIsForTheMommas #badwolves #zombie #Family #Love #photocredit 📸🙌🏽@randyedwardsphotos
