Metal band BAD WOLVES has released it cover version of of THE CRANBERRIES‘ most famous and successful song, “Zombie”. THE CRANBERRIES lead vocalist Dolores O’Riordan was set to record her vocals on the track earlier this week when she was found dead on the bathroom floor of her London hotel room by a maid hours after her death, according to multiple reports.
BAD WOLVES singer Tommy Vext said in the statement: “‘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.”
All profits from BAD WOLVES‘s version of the track will benefit O’Riordan‘s three children. “You never know if that’s going to help,” Vext told Rolling Stone. “But hopefully it does some good.”
