Bad Wolves Announce New Label, Mgmt & Release New Song

I am so excited to announce this. My band BAD WOLVES has just announced that we have signed with powerhouse rock label, Eleven Seven Music, home to other artists such as Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch, Motley Crüe, and In Flames.

The band has also revealed that we have linked up with Zoltan Bathory, guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch as band manager. In a statement from Zoltan, “I knew these guys for many years from their previous bands so I knew they were all exceptional musicians, but when they formed BAD WOLVES and played me the first few songs, I thought, ‘Okay… there is fire here, this one has the magical combination.’ Hard work and persistence always outstrip talent, and these guys have both.”

Check out the lyric video above for the track “Toast to the Ghost”, featured on the band’s as yet untitled debut record, slated for release in early 2018. Expect a full slate of non-stop touring around the world next year beyond.
