Bad Wolves Tribute To Dolores O’Riordan Goes Global

by | Feb 6, 2018 | Sound/Vision

American hard rock band Bad Wolves are currently dominating the charts worldwide with their cover of The Cranberries’ classic Zombie. Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan was scheduled to record guest vocals for the song on the very day of her tragic passing. The band decided to move forward and release the track in her memory with all proceeds going to her three children.

Shortly after the news of O’Riordan’s death broke, Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext said: “Zombie is an incredibly personal song… and we always felt the rawness and honesty she projected on stage and in her recordings was something to which all bands should aspire to… When we heard she wanted to sing on our version, it was the greatest compliment a [band] could receive.”
The full statement can be found on bands twitter account:

Since the track debuted on January 19th, Bad Wolves’ moving rendition of the ’90s hit has gone to #1 on the iTunes Metal charts, #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, and #3 in Shazam searches. It has amassed more than 700,000 streams across platforms in 10 days and continues to fill rock and metal airwaves across the globe.

The track will appear on the band’s debut album, coming later this year on Eleven Seven Music.
