BAD WOLVES - Drop New EP "Sacred Kiss" Today And Team Up With Of Mice & Men’s Aaron Pauley On Title Track Video

Today, multi-platinum band Bad Wolves released a new body of work, titled “Sacred Kiss” via Better Noise Music. The critically acclaimed band also premiered an official music video for the title track, on which they collaborated with Aaron Pauley from Of Mice & Men. The band treated fans to more music from the “Dear Monsters” recording sessions today, including “The Body”, a funkier sounding song released earlier this month, an acoustic version of “Sacred Kiss”, and another brand new track called “Up In Smoke”. Aaron Pauley appears in the band’s supernatural official music video for “Sacred Kiss”, which features zombies and more. The band will be on tour for the rest of the year, hitting stages across Europe. They will be touring Europe this fall, performing in Germany and France, with Volbeat and Skindred. See below for a full list of dates and visit: to catch them on tour.

Drummer John Boecklin shared his thoughts on the meaning of “Sacred Kiss” and teaming up with Aaron Pauley: “Stoked to have you all hear this collaboration with Aaron Pauley from Of Mice & Men. ‘Sacred Kiss’ reflects on meeting someone that you quickly fall for and have a preconceived notion of who they are and what it could be, and then quickly realizing it is not what you expected. We made a killer video as well that plays on some of those themes. We had a lot of fun making it. Definitely, our favorite one we have made so far!”.

Of Mice & Men’s Aaron Pauley also commented on the collaboration: “I think the song absolutely rips, so I was stoked when the guys reached out to me about doing a new version of it. I really enjoyed recording the song, and had even more fun shooting the video with the guys!”.

On their new EP, John said: “With ‘Sacred Kiss’ going to radio this summer, we decided to release an EP containing some of the remaining songs from the ‘Dear Monsters’ sessions! ‘Up In Smoke’ and The Body’ will keep your appetites for riffs settled, while the piano version of Sacred Kiss rounds off the EP just right. Basically, it’s a little something to hold the Wolfpack over till we get another album out!”.
