Addiction is a horrible disease which many of us will come into contact with (whether it be ourselves or someone we know and love) but today Bad Wolves have decided to play a part in helping out those on the road to recover with their re-released video for ‘Sober‘ which features footage from the movie Sno Babies, a film which discusses the devastating impact of addiction on families and relationships. The message of hope throughout the movie is that everyone has to remember that recovery is possible for those who can stay the course.
On the song’s re-release, frontman Tommy Vext says:
“This song was a unique opportunity to talk about addiction not only from the perspective of the addict but also from the perspective of their loved ones. The message is very different from traditional songs that seem to always perpetuate a mentality of self victimization which is exactly the kind of misguided thinking that perpetuates the mental obsessive side of alcoholism & addiction. In the end the moral of the story is about holding on to not giving up on ourselves or the people who are trying – who are really, really trying to make and better themselves.”
On top of the re-release, the band have also launched the #WolfPackRecovery hoodie campaign in which they hope to raise funds for organisations who help with the road to recovery:
“We aim to use the video’s release as a platform to raise awareness of GRI’s efforts to provide access to recovery support services all around the U.S, and Rock To Recovery’s efforts to use the healing power of music to help overcome addiction, eating disorders and a variety of mental health issues. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Sno Babies Soundtrack will go towards helping GRI’s efforts with recovery organizations. Additionally, 100% of the profits from this #wolfpackrecovery Indiegogo campaign will go towards helping Rock To Recovery.”
