Bad Wolves are back, but they look a bit different this time around.

The band has released “Lifeline,” its first song with new vocalist DL Laskiewicz. The song also marks the first bit of new music off Bad Wolves’ upcoming album, Dear Monsters, which drops Oct. 29 on Better Noise Music.

“DL is one of the most talented and hard-working people we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a team player, a creative force, and overall a great human being who fits perfectly with our BW family,” the band says in a statement.

The band adds, “It feels incredible to be surrounded with such positive energy and the music we’ve made is certainly reflective of this new-found optimism and collaborative spirit. This new album shows a more cohesive and unique reflection of the band. There is a lot to prove and expectations are high with a new singer coming in. And we nailed it. We are sure you will agree that this is our best album yet.”
