May 24th, 2018, New York, NY: With the release of the debut album Disobey on May 11th, Bad Wolves have cemented their spot at the forefront of rock, as the genres number 1 breakout artist of the year.
According to Soundscan, Disobey sold close to 20,000 units in the first week and has achieved the #22 on the Billboard Top 200, #2 spot the Hard Rock Chart, #4 onRock, and #8 on the Top Current Albums Chart. The band also has reclaimed the #1spot on the Billboard Emerging Artist Chart, first topping the chart in March.
The band rose to acclaim with their cover of The Cranberries’ intergenerational hit “Zombie” earlier this year and the track maintains its status as the #1 Rock Song of 2018 having now gone PLATINUM in Canada, and GOLD in the U.S, and Australia.
The single enters its third week at #1 on the U.S. Active Rock radio chart having already topped charts worldwide – including the iTunes overall and rock charts,Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart, and the#1 spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart. The official music video has garnered over 100 million views. Bad Wolves plan to donate all of their proceeds to the song to Dolores O’Riordan’s four children.
In addition to “Zombie,” Disobey boasts the crushingly catchy “Learn to Live,” fan favorites “No Masters” and “Shapeshifter,” and the soaring ballad “Remember When”. The latter is inspired by Vext’s twin brother, who is currently serving time for his attempt to murder Vext. Following the murder attempt, Vext began a career as a sober coach to help others break free of the cycle of addiction and violence.
The group will spend much of the foreseeable future on the road. Bad Wolves will soon embark on a co-headline run with labelmates From Ashes to New and Diamante. Diamante is also featured on the non-album version of Bad Wolves’ “Hear Me Now”. Beginning June 6th, Bad Wolves will set out on a co-headlining tour with labelmates From Ashes to New and special guest Diamante. Starting mid-July, Bad Wolves will join Five Finger Death Punch, along with Breaking Benjamin andNothing More and remain on the road through September.
