Bad Wolves will unleash their newest furious masterpiece, Die About It, on November 3rd via Better Noise Music.
Platinum-certified LA Rockers Bad Wolves refuse to follow. Instead, the band circumvents convention by stretching the boundaries of hard rock with earthquaking heaviness, enigmatic experimentation, and enthralling melodies. The band featuring John Boecklin [drums], Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz [lead vocals], Doc Coyle [lead guitar, backing vocals] and Kyle Konkiel [bass, backing vocals] are starting a new chapter on their own terms with their fourth full-length album Nodding to inspirations as diverse as The 1975 and Meshuggah; Bad Wolves challenged themselves to experiment and redefine their sound on Die About It with collaborator Josh Gilbert [As I Lay Dying] who co-produced the album alongside John and DL. With a story that emphasizes the sarcastic statement pointed towards those defending their own beliefs into absurdity, wrong or right, Bad Wolves believe if you’re going to cry about it, then you might as well Die About It.
Pre-orders for Die About It, including digital download, CD, cassette, and three vinyl color variants, are available here: https://badwolves.ffm.to/dieaboutit.
I had the pleasure of speaking with drummer and band founder John Boecklin about the band’s sonic release, the headspace the band was in making the album, when the electronic elements and rapping are added to the songs, how he writes many of the songs on guitar but has no desire to ever play guitar live on stage, and how they have accomplishments so much success in such a short period of time.
