According to The Pulse Of Radio, BAD WOLVES are looking for a new song to cover, following the band's massive breakout success last year with its rendition of the 1993 CRANBERRIES classic "Zombie". Originally scheduled to feature a guest appearance from late CRANBERRIES frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan, the single launched shortly after her death in January of 2018 and went on to top the rock radio chart and sell a million copies.
BAD WOLVES have been working on their sophomore LP and are now apparently seeking fan input on a potential new cover song. The band wrote on Twitter: "We're really close to wrapping up the record and we can't wait to drop new tunes on you guys! Here's the question, (if) we did another cover song what would you guys want to hear?"
"Zombie" surfaced on BAD WOLVES' debut LP, "Disobey", which came out in May 2018 and has also yielded the follow-up single "Hear Me Now", featuring Diamante, which reached No. 2 on the rock chart.
Guitarist Doc Coyle recently spoke to Australia's Loud about the musical direction of the band's second album, which is due out before the end of the year. Coyle explained: "It's diverse. There's stuff that's probably heavier, as or more heavy than the last record... And then there's some really catchy, kind of more mainstream stuff to cover that end of it, and a lot of stuff in the middle."
BAD WOLVES was formed in 2017, comprised of former members of DEVILDRIVER, GOD FORBID, DIVINE HERESY and IN THIS MOMENT.
