Bad Wolves’ Tommy Vext Says He Became “Homeless” In Order To Tour With The Band This Year

Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext has revealed the sacrifices he made in order to spend much of the year out on tour with the band. According to the below Instagram post Vext made earlier this month, he became ‘homeless’ to spend much of this year out with Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin and more.

While the group experienced breakout success with their cover of The Cranberries‘ “Zombie” this year—which went platinum in the United States and more—they stayed true to their word, donating $250,000 of the proceeds from the track to the family of late The Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan. Here’s what Vext had to say of his situation:

“Many people don’t realize that I am homeless. In order to go out on tour in 2018 from March through December I had to give up my apartment, get rid of my car and put all of my belongings in storage.

I never thought I would be grateful for the times of my life when I was forced to be homeless because the lessons I would learn only prepared me for life out of a suitcase.

This year has been an incredible ride conquering 7 tours from Amphitheater’s & arenas for tens of thousands to headlining our own club tour only weeks after our debut album was released.

I have been all over the US, Europe, UK, Canada and Australia and have met countless wonderful people at shows, on the streets and in the gym.

What a blessing to be able to tour with and befriend for so many amazing artists, and turning a crew of amazingly talented guys into a family.

After the honor of having Zombie go Diamond, Platinum, Double Platinum & Gold in almost a dozen countries and going number one globally I’ve just received word that #HearMeNow is the number 1 song on active rock radio in the United States of America. What a way to end an amazing year.

Thank you everyone who supported us, bought our t shirts and records, showed up and sang their lungs out !

Thank you to our road crew, our label, managment, all our new friends at radio stations across the globe.

You’ve given us a life beyond our wildest dreams.

Forever Grateful”

Next up for the band will be a new record with the group due to enter the studio in January to begin tracking their sophomore outing.
