US rockers Bad Wolves have announced a European headline tour in June, including dates in London and Manchester ahead of a slot at Download Festival. Following shows at Germany’s Rock Am Ring on June 7 and Rock Im Park on June 9, the band will play two shows at London’s The Garage on June 12th and Manchester’s Academy 3 on the 13th, before they perform at Download Festival on the 15th. Bad Wolves will then continue their tour with shows and festival appearances in Austria, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, France and Belgium. 

Says Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext: “We couldn’t be more excited to return to Europe this summer. The fans in the UK have been supportive of us right from the beginning. And, needless to say it’s a childhood dream come true for all of us in the band to play Download Festival. We can’t wait to see you all out there at the shows – it’ll be a blast.” The tour follows the huge success of last year’s debut album Disobey, which featured the worldwide hit and RIAA certified platinum single of Cranberries cover, “Zombie.”

The single became the global breakthrough rock track of the year, hitting #1 on Spotify’s viral chart in over 40 countries, #1 on the iTunes overall songs chart and iTunes rock and metal charts, and reigning atop the US Rock radio chart for three straight weeks. ‘Zombie’ was also certified double platinum in Canada, platinum in the US and gold in Australia and Sweden, and the song earned the Impala Diamond award in Europe. The unprecedented success of ‘Zombie’ lead to Bad Wolves’ debut album Disobey achieving the #22 spot on the Billboard Top 200, #2 on the Hard Rock Chart, #4 on Rock, and #8 on the Top Current Albums Chart. Bad Wolves start their European tour on June 7th at Rock Am Ring. Full dates can be found below.
