This week, Billy got on the phone to Tommy Vext, lead singer and founder of the American hard rock band Bad Wolves to chat about the demons he's faced throughout his life and career.

Bad Wolves first found mainstream success with their powerful cover of the Cranberries hit, Zombie. The late Dolores O'Riordan was due to sing with the band, but she passed the night before the gig. 

Tommy has had his fare share of heartbreak, including his brother trying to murder him and having to testify against him in court before he was sent to jail. Struggling his whole life with PTSD, he turned to alcohol and drugs and almost took his own life.

Fast-forward to now, Tommy has been sober for 10 years, and when he's not touring the world, he spends his time recording music to help people stay clean.

Bad Wolves release their highly anticipated follow up album, NATION, on October 25th.
