Bad Wolves and ex-vocalist Tommy Vext settle lawsuits
Bad Wolves, their management team and record label, and ex-vocalist Tommy Vext have reportedly settled their respective lawsuits.
Since the singer's split with the band last winter, the two parties have traded insults and accusations via social media. In July, Vext filed a lawsuit against Bad Wolves manager Allen Kovac and record label Better Noise Music, who reciprocated with their own lawsuit against Vext.
"Bad Wolves and its co-founder John Boecklin, alongside their label Better Noise, manager 10th Street Entertainment, and publisher 5-19, have collectively resolved their disputes with Tommy Vext," a joint statement reads. "A partnership can sometimes lead to divorce. Artists have creative differences and argue over songs, credits, and much more; however, if both sides believe in their own talents, they find a path to go their separate ways. This is a settlement with no winners and no losers; it's beneficial to everyone in order to move on and bury the hatchet. This is a new beginning and a bright future for all those concerned. We're all excited to get back to what's important, and that's the music. Bad Wolves and Tommy wish each other the best going forward, and ask that their fans respect this decision."
The settlement paves the way for Vext to release his solo material unimpeded, while Bad Wolves can continue to tour and release music using the Bad Wolves name. Billboard reports that additional terms of the agreement remain undisclosed.
In June, Bad Wolves officially replaced Vext with Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz (ex-The Acacia Strain).
