Bad Wolves' Kyle Konkiel has opened up about the criticism that the band has faced in their career, especially for doing cover tunes. During an appearance on BREWtally Speaking Podcast, Konkiel said, "Well, first of all, the one thing that I take away from listening to Joe Rogan for as long as I have is: don't read the comments, because when I do, I do get upset and I have responded to people." He continued, "That they might not understand, and maybe they're attacking us, like with the covers, I get people are upset because we haven't made them available publicly."
He added, "And regardless if you appreciate the way that we do our business. Unfortunately we can't… There's a lot of red tape when you release covers, and honestly, with with releasing them publicly like that, it wouldn't bring in the amount of income for the band itself. That's not even like for us individually as band members, like we got to a certain point to where the machine needs to stay well oiled."
