Bad Wolves have announced the Wolfpack Recovery charity campaign.
The initiative will benefit Rock to Recovery, which uses music therapy to help those battling addiction, as well as eating disorders and mental health issues.
To coincide with the Wolfpack Recovery's launch, Bad Wolves premiered a new video for their song "Sober," a track off the band's 2019 sophomore album, N.A.T.I.O.N. The fresh clip, streaming now on YouTube, includes footage from the upcoming film Sno Babies, which is about two college-bound best friends who become addicted to heroin.
"This song was a unique opportunity to talk about addiction not only from the perspective of the addict but also from the perspective of their loved ones," frontman Tommy Vext says of "Sober."
"The message is very different from traditional songs that seem to always perpetuate a mentality of self victimization, which is exactly the kind of misguided thinking that perpetuates the mental obsessive side of alcoholism and addiction," he explains. "In the end, the moral of the story is about holding on to not giving up on ourselves or the people who are trying -- who are really, really trying to make and better themselves."
Bad Wolves hope to raise $10,000 for Rock to Recovery through the Wolfpack Recovery initiative. To do that, they've set up a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo, offering exclusive perks including limited edition apparel, signed merch and V.I.P. tickets.
