VIDEO: BAD WOLVES Pay Homage to Dolores O'Riordan In New ZOMBIE Video
Bad Wolves' cover of The Cranberries' intergenerational hit single "Zombie" continues to dominate rock and metal charts around the globe, with all proceeds from track donated to lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's three children.
Today, the band reveals the official "Zombie" music video, directed by Wayne Isham[Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth, Motley Crue]. It's a powerful testament to the Cranberries' singer, who was set to record with the band on the day of her tragic passing. The new video features an unreachable woman fully-realized in O'Riordan's iconic gold from the original "Zombie" video. Throughout the clip, she and frontman Tommy Vext try to touch each other but cannot. She leaves golden handprints with each attempt to touch.
Originally released in 1994 following the IRA bombing of Warrington, The Cranberries' "Zombie" hit #1 across the globe, including on the Billboard Alternative Songs charts. The song returned to the top ten on the US Rock Charts shortly after news of her passing was announced. That same week Bad Wolves released their version of "Zombie" in her honor. In just four weeks, the cover has garnered over 3 Million combined streams (across YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music) and continues to climb the charts. Bad Wolves "Zombie" is currently Top-20 at U.S. Rock Radio and sits atop rock and metal iTunes charts around the world.
