Bad Wolves Say ‘Better the Devil’ in Beatdown of a New Song
Bad Wolves have been dominating 2018 with their cover of the classic Cranberries track, "Zombie," which they even recently performed on Ireland's The Late Late Show. They've got more to be excited about with Disobey, their upcoming debut, on the horizon and a newly released video for the song "Better the Devil."
The band packs a lot into three minutes, highlighting their diverse spread of influences. At it's core, "Better the Devil" is rhythmically focused with jagged, sometimes djenty guitar work dominating the track. There's melodic relief from the beatdowns in the form of single note, more ethereal sounds that provide a sense of light and shade. Lyrically, Tommy Vext is angsty, vengeful and looking for release and at war vocally as he switches from screams to cathartic croons.
You can catch Bad Wolves on the road this summer as part of Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin's co-headlining tour. Nothing More will be on the bill as well and you can see the full list of stops right here.
Disobey comes out May 11 on Eleven Seven and pre-orders can be placed here. For more on the album, check out the artwork and track listing below.
