Almost five months after parting ways with Tommy Vext, Bad Wolves have announced that they’ve hired a new singer: Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz, former guitarist for The Acacia Strain.
Laskiewicz previously collaborated with Bad Wolves on their 2019 album, N.A.T.I.O.N., albeit only as a songwriter (if I’m not mistaken). He’ll make his recording debut with the band on their new album, which will be called Dear Monsters, and is expected to be released later this year via Better Noise Music.
Says the band in a statement:
“We are excited to officially announce that Bad Wolves has a new singer – Daniel ‘DL’ Lasckiewicz. DL is a tremendous songwriter and singer, and we can confidently say that the album we are working on, titled Dear Monsters, is the best Bad Wolves album to date.
“DL is one of the most talented and hard-working people we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a team player, a creative force, and overall a great human being who fits perfectly with our BW family. It feels incredible to be surrounded with such positive energy and the music we’ve made is certainly reflective of this new-found optimism and collaborative spirit. This new album shows a more cohesive and unique reflection of the band. There is a lot to prove and expectations are high with a new singer coming in. And we nailed it. The songs speak for themselves, and if you’re a Bad Wolves fan we know you won’t be disappointed.
“So much has happened since Tommy publicly quit Bad Wolves a few months ago — and we disagree with the validity of much of what he has said publicly about our parting of ways — but we would prefer to not look back on the past and instead focus on this new chapter. And most importantly, we’d like to let the music speak for itself. Thanks for believing in Bad Wolves and please join us in welcoming DL to the family. We can’t wait for you to hear what’s coming.
“John, Doc, Chris, Kyle & DL”
Standby for new music from Bad Wolves, and, if we’re really lucky, an irrational online rant from Tommy Vext about how George Soros and sex workers are at fault for all of this.
