Bad Wolves have now officially confirmed Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz, former guitarist for The Acacia Strain, as their new vocalist.

Since leaving The Acacia Strain in 2013, DL has been involved with a few bands, including LGND, helping Unearth write their 2018 album ‘Extinction(s)’, and most notably helping with the latest Bad Wolves record, 2019’s ‘N.A.T.I.O.N.’.

The band shared the news of DL‘s joining the band in a statement which you can read below, in which they also confirmed that a third album called ‘Dear Monsters’ is in the works.

“We are excited to officially announce that Bad Wolves has a new singer – Daniel “DL” Lasckiewicz. DL is a tremendous songwriter and singer, and we can confidently say that the album we are working on, titled ‘Dear Monsters’, is the best Bad Wolves album to date.

DL is one of the most talented and hard-working people we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a team player, a creative force, and overall a great human being who fits perfectly with our Bad Wolves family. It feels incredible to be surrounded with such positive energy and the music we’ve made is certainly reflective of this new-found optimism and collaborative spirit. This new album shows a more cohesive and unique reflection of the band. There is a lot to prove and expectations are high with a new singer coming in. And we nailed it. The songs speak for themselves, and if you’re a Bad Wolves fan we know you won’t be disappointed.

So much has happened since Tommy publicly quit Bad Wolves a few months ago – and we disagree with the validity of much of what he has said publicly about our parting of ways – but we would prefer to not look back on the past and instead focus on this new chapter. And most importantly, we’d like to let the music speak for itself. Thanks for believing in Bad Wolves and please join us in welcoming DL to the family. We can’t wait for you to hear what’s coming.

John, Doc, Chris, Kyle & DL”

DL replaces original frontman Tommy Vext, who left the band earlier this year. In a statement, Vext said that his decision to leave revolved around his political stance, differing ideologies, and that when working on a new Bad Wolves album during lockdown it became “very clear” that he had “become a solo artist.” He also disclosed that DL would be the band’s new vocalist a little over a week ago, though neither the band or DL confirmed at the time.

More details surrounding the band’s third studio album, ‘Dear Monsters’, will be confirmed as they develop.
