badwolveszombiecoverThis past week, the alternative/rock world took another huge hit when Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries passed away at the age of 46. Dolores and her amazing vocals were as iconic as the music she put out with the group and one band has decided to pay tribute to her. Dolores was in London where she was supposed to enter the studio to lend her vocals to her own track Zombie that was being covered by the band Bad Wolves. Unfortunately, she never made it to the studio and the band was left with the track, but nonetheless they finished the track. The band has gone the extra step with the track as they released it with all proceeds from the track going to Dolores’s three children. The cover is absolutely amazing and it may be one of the best covers of the year so far as Tommy Vext went all out sounding amazing. Tommy talks about the track and why Dolores wanted to be on it saying, “It was the greatest honor to know she liked our version and wanted to sing on it. We’re deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dolores and by the fact that she’s leaving behind three children so we are donating the proceeds from the song to her kids.”

In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting.’ It’s a reference to the IRA bombings during the Irish Rebellion. We changed that lyric to say ‘2018’ and she was really excited about that because the nations may have changed but we’re still fighting the same battles today. Humanity is still fighting to assert itself despite all the conflicts.” It’s an amazing track that you definitely need to check out and it’s right below. R.I.P. Dolores O’Riordan
