Bad Wolves Release Bad Friend




Address Toxic Friendships With Fierce New Single “Bad Friend” 



Platinum-certified hard rock heavyweights BAD WOLVES fuse unpredictable metallic intensity and impressive musicianship with arena-ready hooks. The group are excited to today (July 21) release across all digital platforms the first single, “Bad Friend,” from their highly anticipated studio album (title TBA) due later this year via Better Noise Music

 “Bad Friend” brings awareness to recognizing the importance of cutting out people in your life who show toxic behavior and moving on from them. 

BAD WOLVES enlisted director Wombatfire (Asking Alexandria, Dream Theater) for its dark-themed music video.



‘Bad Friend’ exemplifies exactly where Bad Wolves always wanted to be as a band,” relays vocalist Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz. “It lives dead center of being melodically catchy as well as crushingly heavy and is a great representation of our new upcoming album. This song reminds us that TRUE friendship is not about being perfect or always saying the right thing but being there for each other through the good times and the bad. It’s also to be willing to acknowledge one’s own mistakes and make things right. If you can’t do that, you might be a bad f*cking friend.

Since 2018, BAD WOLVES, whose lineup consists of John Boecklin (drums), Doc Coyle (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Kyle Konkiel (bass, backing vocals), have earned a platinum plaque, topped iTunes, and continued to rule Active Rock radio charts with six #1 singles (“Hear Me Now,” “Killing Me Slowly,” “Lifeline,” “Remember When,” “Sober” and “Zombie”) and two Top 10 singles (“If Tomorrow Never Comes” at #2 and “Learn To Walk Again” at #10).   Their debut album, Disobey, made a Top 25 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and saw BAD WOLVES perform to sold-out audiences on multiple continents with heavyweights such as Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth. 2019’s N.A.T.I.O.N. brought their total stream tally past the half-billion mark—unprecedented for a modern rock band.  On top of that, Loudwire hailed it among the “50 Best Rock Albums of 2019” as Billboard and Consequence of Sound chronicled their rise. In the midst of 2021, they welcomed Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz—previously of The Acacia Strain—as lead vocalist, ushering in a new chapter with their third full-length offering, Dear Monster.

Alt Pop Trio Share Single  “Changing”

Marking Debut Single Via Better Noise Music

Bay Area staple alt pop group FINISH TICKET have taken fans, and themselves, on a rollercoaster ride throughout their career with a whirlwind of highs and lows. After creating a wave with sold-out shows across the Bay Area and their debut album Tears You Apart, they were picked up by Atlantic Records who released their debut EP When Night Becomes Day and were seen touring alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy and AWOLNATION. The band also made key festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Life Is Beautiful and Kaboo, in addition to making their debut late-night TV performance on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien.” In 2019, FINISH TICKET self-released their hit track “Dream Song,” which garnered over 2.7 million streams and saw the band embark on a successful headlining tour, selling out multiple venues across the country. Then COVID hit in 2020 and put everything to a halt. 

After spending the past three years writing and recording their second full-length album (title TBA), FINISH TICKET signed a record deal with Better Noise Music. Today (July 21), they’ve released the first new music with the single, “Changing,” marked by an irresistible melody, nostalgic guitar riffs and affecting self-questioning lyrics.  For the intimate sing-along styled lyric video, the trio—Brendan Hoye (vocals), Alex DiDonato (guitar), and Gabe Stein (drums)—took a full-sized bed out to one of their favorite beaches at Point Dume in Malibu, CA



“This song is about the fear of aging and feeling that you haven’t accomplished as much as you thought you would by now,” the band explain. “By letting those pressures get to you, you lose sight of why you chose this path and start making decisions from a place of desperation and not for the love of what you do. Pair that frantic disappointment with a pressing drum beat and nostalgic guitar riffs, alongside a languid halftime outro, and you’ve got ‘Changing.’”
