Bad Wolves have introduced a new guitar player named Max Karon.

“It’s with great excitement that we announce our new permanent guitar player: Max Karon,” the “Lifeline” rockers wrote in a social media post. “The funny thing is that Max isn’t new to us, he started the band with founder [and drummer] John Boecklin in 2014 and was a major writer/player on all three Bad Wolves albums.”

The statement continues, “Being a key ingredient to the Bad Wolves sound, this was a no-brainer decision. There is no other person on this earth that would be a better fit for Bad Wolves than Max.”

Karon, who adds that he’s “thrilled and grateful” to be officially joining, takes the place of guitarist Chris Cain, who announced in April that he’s leaving Bad Wolves after five years in the band. In his own statement, Cain wrote, “Sometimes in life you have to do what’s best for you and for me it was stepping away.”

Bad Wolves, of course, went through a big lineup change last year when vocalist Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz joined in place of frontman Tommy Vext.

You can catch the revamped Bad Wolves live when they hit the road with Papa Roach, Falling in Reverse and Hollywood Undead on the Rockzilla Summer Tour, which kicks off in July.
