Bad Wolves pay homage to Dolores O’Riordan with their new “Zombie” video [UPDATED]

The day Cranberries’ singer Dolores O’Riordan was found dead in her London hotel room, she was supposed to go into the studio with a metal band called Bad Wolves. They had contacted her about appearing on and/or advising them on their cover of “Zombie.”

The Bad Wolves’ version of “Zombie” had been completed back in November, but before they released it, they wanted Dolores’ blessing. She was so interested in the project that she flew to London.

Of course, she never made it to the studio that morning.

A week after her death, the band decided to release the song as they had recorded it, with all proceeds going to Dolores’ children. Today they released a video.
