Bad Wolf

On December 1st, Tommy Vext (no relation to the metal band) tweeted a rather cynical comment about bad wolves on the surface of Mars as opposed to a boy falling in love with a girl since it was a "new song". He was soon followed by another tweet that he apologizes for the bad joke.

After his exit from Bad Wolves, Vext started a GoFundMe campaign for a solo record of original music. He also started uploading a series of cover songs he recorded in 2020 onto his YouTube account, as well as announcing tour dates for a "Fuck Cancel Culture Tour" in April 2021. His GoFundMe campaign raised over $175,000 before Vext stated on March 15, 2021 that he would not be releasing it due to being "financially bullied into submission". He claimed that "the original album I made last year will either not come out or be given to another act on the label to perform as their own. Unfortunately fighting this would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and take years to get resolved". He also stated that the covers album "is still sitting until the legal agreements can be signed off on but I'm excited to get those out to you guys as soon as I can." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
