Since the release of Hollywood Undead’s RIAA platinum-certified 2008 debut album, Swan Songs, the band’s distinctive and infectious music has incited a cult audience of millions of fans, resulting in sold out shows across the globe, in addition to receiving nods in the press from the likes of Consequence of Sound, Billboard, Alternative Press, Rolling Stone, and Revolver. The quintet, comprised of Johnny 3 Tears (vocals, bass guitar), J-Dog (vocals, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, programming) Charlie Scene (vocals, guitar), Funny Man (vocals), and Danny (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass), have garnered massive mainstream appeal, with their 2011 sophomore record, American Tragedy, going gold and hitting #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Their 2013 full-length, Notes From The Underground, seized the #2 spot, and in 2018, Hollywood Undead crossed 1 billion total global streams.
Wanna tag Bad Wolves with a neat little label? Good luck with that. This band’s gloriously unpredictable musical diversity defies the categorizational convenience that the modern world demands. Simply put, it’s a mesmerizing musical potpourri that can’t be pigeonholed – masterfully prepared with an unapologetic middle-digit raised high. “We’re not reinventing the wheel,” says Bad Wolves’ lead vocalist Tommy Vext. “We just take all the things we love and try to make records that our 16-year-old selves would wanna go buy.” “We’re a surprisingly complex rock band,” adds founding member and drummer John Boecklin. Drawing musical inspiration from the likes of Pantera, Sepultura, and Fear Factory, along with vocal influences from Busta Rhymes and Big Pun, to Fiona Apple and Deftones, Bad Wolves incorporates various elements of their influences into their songwriting. “I guess you could think of us as a heavy-sounding, detuned, prog-rock group that trims a lot of fat, shoots from the hip, and focuses on writing the best songs we can.”
