Bad Wolves have launched a charity initiative to benefit Rock to Recovery, which gives music therapy to those battling addiction and other issues

The guys of Bad Wolves are giving back by launching the Wolfpack Recovery charity campaign to benefit Rock to Recovery, which offers music therapy to help those battling addiction, eating disorders and mental health issues.

In conjunction with Bad Wolves kicking off the initiative, the band debuted a new video for their song “Sober,” which appears on the group’s 2019 sophomore album, “N.A.T.I.O.N.” The video features footage from the upcoming movie “Sno Babies,” which tells the story of two best friends heading to college 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” in a statement.

“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 added. “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 wants to raise $10,000 for Rock to Recovery via the Wolfpack Recovery initiative. The band is also raising funds via a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo with some special band perks.
