Bad Wolveshave proven to be the unprecedented global breakthrough rock act of 2018 and aim to continue that momentum withN.A.T.I.O.N. The stunning 12-track follow-up to their debut album,Disobey, is a bit of a departure – staying in the same realm musically, but breaking beyond. As vocalistTommy Vextexplains, “We’ve honed it in and really delivered a more focused version of Bad Wolves’ sound. Basically, it’s like pouring steroids on everything we love about the first record to create an album that’s a roller coaster of emotional experience.”
Founding member and drummerJohn Boecklinadds, “N.A.T.I.O.N. is definitely a big step in the right direction, we’re still evolving. It’s only our second record and I’m very excited about it.”
