BAD WOLVES have presented a check for $250,000 to the family of late CRANBERRIES singer Dolores O'Riordan, whose song Zombie has yielded a massive hit for the Wolves.
O'Riordan was scheduled to record vocals on the BAD WOLVES' cover of her track on the day that she died in a London hotel this past January. The band decided to release the song in her honor with all proceeds going to her children.
BAD WOLVES frontman Tommy Vext said, "In light of the tragedy, donating our proceeds to her children was the only thing that made sense. The ultimate goal is to present them with a $1,000,000 check — and the fact we're a quarter of the way there is beyond incredible. The connection that people have to this song, the stories, the memories and the kids who are hearing this song through BAD WOLVES for the first time — it's a true testament to the timelessness of their mother's songwriting that will live on forever, and we are so grateful to be able to do this for them."
BAD WOLVES will tour the U.S. with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and BREAKING BENJAMIN, and they hit Blossom on Sept 9
