Bad Wolves announce first UK and European tour

Bad Wolves band

Bad Wolves have announced their first-ever UK and European tour.

The band, who shot to fame with their cover of The Cranberries’ classic Zombie, will join Three Days Grace throughout October, kicking off at the Pyramids Centre in Portsmouth on the 1st of the month.

Frontman Tommy Vext says: “Last year when I stood in for Five Finger Death Punch on a few of their shows, I was reminded how passionate and loyal European fans are. 

“When Bad Wolves released Zombie earlier this year, we got the same, great response and couldn’t believe the massive wave of support from all over Europe – especially given that we’re a new band. 

“Not a day has gone by that we don’t get tons of messages from fans demanding for us to come over. Originally, we were planning to do so in 2019, but it became clear that the time is now and we had to find a way. 

“Coincidingly, Three Days Grace invited us to join them in Europe so we didn’t think twice and here we are. We couldn't be more excited and can’t wait to see all of you out there at the shows.”

Bad Wolves are managed by Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory who says that seeing the band’s popularity boom this year hasn’t come as a surprise to him.

He adds: “They have that special sauce you can’t manufacture. You have to go and see them to understand the way they connect with people. 

“We took them on the road in the US and they’ve been killin’ it night after night. They are the real deal. Europe is going to love them.”

Bad Wolves released their debut album Disobey earlier this year.
