Bad Wolves have set May 18th as the release date for the band's debut album, titled Disobey, which will include the group's massively successful cover of the Cranberries hit "Zombie." The track has hit the Top 15 on the American rock radio chart and is Number One on iTunes in multiple countries, including the U.K., Sweden, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the Cranberries' home country of Ireland.
Late Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan was slated to record vocals for Bad Wolves' cover of the 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.
