With their new album Dear Monsters set to arrive at the end of the month, Bad Wolves have unleashed the album’s hard-hitting second single, “House of Cards.”
The track follows the music video for “Lifeline,” which served up the first taste of new singer DL Laskiewicz, who replaced Tommy Vext after he left the group earlier this year in what has since amounted to a messy split with ongoing legal proceedings.
“House of Cards” immediately establishes itself as a heavier track than the first Dear Monsters offering, but still playfully doubles down on the energy once the chorus hits and is more reliant on punishing rhythms than melody. The most aggressive moments come in the back half of the song as Laskiewicz displays his capabilities as a more extreme vocalist, while a shred solo in tandem with the riffing style helps put some aspects firmly in modern metal territory.
Dear Monsters, Bad Wolves’ third overall album and first since 2019’s N.A.T.I.O.N., will be released on Oct. 29 through Better Noise Music. Pre-order your copy here.
