Today, Wallen has shared the video for “The Wolf.” Watch it here.

“‘The Wolf’ is a song and a concept that I felt a lot of us can identify with,” Wallen says. “We’ve all known those people that for whatever reason we just can’t break ourselves away from them. An addiction on every level, all the while knowing it’s a toxic situation. You break all those promises to yourself that you’ll stay away, but ultimately there you are again.”

Commenting on the video, he shares, “The video for ‘The Wolf’ was shot in a beautiful house in south Nashville. Directed by Courtney Dellafiora, we wanted an intimate look and setting that was reminiscent of waking from a dream in the middle of the night, and then grabbing the guitar and playing the song. The most exciting thing of all with getting to work with ‘Bane,’ the real live wolf actor and his amazing training staff for the shoot! That was a first for me, and I couldn’t be happier how the video turned out.”

Keith Wallen is a prolific songwriter responsible for soaring melodies and hypnotic hooks heard across modern rock radio. The West Virginia-born troubadour uses his solo work as a vehicle to explore his multifaceted passions, moving seamlessly from the smart pop of ’80s favorites like The Police and Depeche Mode to the big moody riffs of ’90s grunge heroes like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots. 
His co-writing collaborations include compositions with Saint Asonia, Fuel, We Came As Romans, Red, Dorothy, and Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s Love And Death. Wallen bares his soul as a solo artist with earnest resolve, powering his honest anthems with commanding vocals. 
A former member of Adelitas Way, Keith was among his first calls when Benjamin Burnley decided to reform and reconfigure his band. Dark Before Dawn, Breaking Benjamin’s powerhouse comeback, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200Ember followed in 2018. 
Keith’s self-produced acoustic and piano-driven Allies EP arrived in 2014. His debut solo album, 2021’sThis World Or The Next, featured “Dream Away,” a song streamed 1.4M times on Spotify alone. His second solo album, Infinity Now, includes production and co-writing contributions from Kevin Thrasher (RIVALS, Jelly Roll) and work with Dan Braunstein (Spiritbox, Dayseeker) and Andrew Baylis (Sleeping With Sirens, Jelly Roll, Brantley Gilbert). 
Produced by Kevin Thrasher (Jelly Roll, RIVALS) and mixed by Joel Wanasek (Rain City Drive, Scott Stapp), Keith’s sophomore solo album, Infinity Now, extends a warm invitation into the singer/songwriter’s heart and mind. Hard rock bombast meets intimate pensiveness via engaging songs like “Blackout,” “Strings,” and first single, “Headspace Holiday.”
As guitarist for Breaking Benjamin, a solo artist or songwriting collaborator, the common threads through Keith Wallen’s work are honesty, authenticity, and heartfelt spirit.
