Bad Wolves release the official video for the hit track, “Sober,” from their sophomore album, N.A.T.I.O.N, out now, via Better Noise Music.
The release of “Sober,” defined the direction of not just the band as a whole, but of vocalist Tommy Vext himself. The song’s powerful, somber melodic undertones set the stage for Vext’s story of ruinous romantic and family relationships, steeped in addiction and self-desecration, that finds recovery possible for those who can stay the course.
“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,” says Vext. “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 & addiction.
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.”
