"Zombie" is a protest song by Irish rock band THE CRANBERRIES, written about the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of two young victims, Johnathan Ball and Tim Perry. It was released in September 1993 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue (1994). It preceded the release of No Need to Argue by two weeks. The song was written by the band's lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, France, Denmark and Germany.
The song returned to the Top-Ten on the US Rock Charts shortly after news of Dolores O’Riordan’s passing earlier this year.
O’Riordan was slated to record vocals for BAD WOLVES cover of the track on the day of her passing. The band decided to release the song in her honour with all BAD WOLVES proceeds going to her children.
"She was telling me BAD WOLVES version was “awesome” and she could not wait to get into the studio, however ultimately her voicemails have brought comfort to her Mother Eileen and her family as they heard her messages joking and talking passionately about music, her children, and future plans."
BAD WOLVES will tour extensively in 2018, with US tour dates supporting FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and SHINEDOWN running through April and May, with more worldwide dates TBA.
