With the release of the debut album “Disobey” on May 11th, BAD WOLVES have cemented their spot at the forefront of rock – as the genre’s Number 1 breakout artist of the year.

The band also has reclaimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Emerging Artist Chart, first topping the chart in March.
The band rose to acclaim with their cover of The Cranberries‘ intergenerational hit ‘Zombie’ earlier this year and the track maintains its status as the #1 Rock Song of 2018 having now gone Platinum in Canada, and Gold in the US, and Australia.
The single enters its third week at #1 on the U.S. Active Rock radio chart having already topped charts worldwide – including the iTunes overall and rock charts, Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart, and the #1 spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart.
