Bad Wolves have donated the proceeds from their cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” to the family of the group’s late singer Dolores O’Riordan. The band presented a check for $250,000 to her family following a sold out performance at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext commented:
“Our sadness the day Dolores passed was nothing compared to that of her children and her family. 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 cheque – 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.”
O’Riordan was set to record with Bad Wolves when she tragically passed away.
