The ongoing feud between former BAD WOLVES frontman Tommy Vext and his former bandmates has taken another turn it seems.
After Vext‘s departure from BAD WOLVES earlier this year, he has never missed an opportunity to take shots at his former bandmates, with the most recent seeing the singer filing suit against the group’s manager/label head Allen Kovac.
In the lawsuit, Vext claims he was the victim of a campaign to drive him out of BAD WOLVES. He alleges that Kovac did so after he became unhappy with Vext‘s increasingly vocal right-wing conspiracy theories and his sharing of those beliefs on social media. Vext also accuses Kovac of enacting the alleged campaign after the singer refused to sell his stake in the band.
Vext further goes on to claim that Kovac‘s ‘Better Noise’ Music label has refused to turn over all the music he wrote and recorded while still under contract. He claims that some of the music he wrote was being re-recorded for the new Bad Wolves album “Dear Monsters“, while other material was intended for a planned solo release.
Vext has previously accused Kovac and the aforementioned label of attempting to ‘financially bully him into submission‘ for his rights in BAD WOLVES.
Back in June, Tommy said the following of the sitiuation: “…They’re fucking frauds. These guys had the nerve to try to oust me from my own company, because I supported the President of the United States of America and they fucking didn’t like that. And guess what? Fuck you. That’s my answer. Okay.
“Now, in the meantime, these fucking clown asshats got some fucking no-name singer, and they’re re-recording the entire new album that I wrote in the studio with my producer during COVID. I recorded three albums last year. And the record label will not allow me to release my music.
“So Better Noise Records is holding all of my music and refusing to let it go, unless I give them the rights to the name Bad Wolves, which they do not have. But they don’t want to give me anything for it and this shit is crazy… This is why I’m this is why I did Vexit. I don’t want to be a part of that industry. I don’t want to fucking deal with any of that bullshit anymore.”
Now it appears Tommy has taken things to the next level, as an ad for Vext‘s newly revised leg of his ‘Don’t Shed On Me Tour‘ has him promoting the trek under the moniker of ‘Tommy Vext And The B@d W8lv3s‘.
Meanwhile, his former bandmates in Bad Wolves have since replaced him with Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz (LGND, ex-The Acacia Strain) and are preparing to release their new album “Dear Monsters” in the not too distant future.
