Following a tease on socials earlier this week, BAD WOLVES have revealed "Hear Me Now" featuring Diamante, out now on Spotify. The surprise duet sees BAD WOLVES frontman Tommy Vext and Diamante join forces in a powerful display of intertwined vocals on the soaring ballad.
"It is undeniable what Diamante brought to the song as a final touch," explains Vext of the collaboration. "In retrospect, it always felt like 'Hear Me Now' was a duet. In the process of recording together, I think we all fell in love with Diamante a little bit. And we think you will too."
The labelmates will hit the road together this summer on the "What's In Your Head" tour. The upcoming trek sees BAD WOLVES and FROM ASHES TO NEW co-headline with Diamante opening each show.
"When BAD WOLVES invited me to record 'Hear Me Now', I was completely ecstatic and honored," shares Diamante. "I am in love with everything about the song, which makes me even more excited to go on our tour this summer with them and FROM ASHES TO NEW! BAD WOLVES and FROM ASHES TO NEW are both incredible bands, and I cannot wait to hit the road with them in June."
"Hear Me Now" is taken from BAD WOLVES' debut album, "Disobey", which will be released on May 18 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc will include BAD WOLVES' cover of THE CRANBERRIES' "Zombie", which recently hit No. 1 in multiple countries around the globe.
The hit single was first released by THE CRANBERRIES in 1994, the original track hit No. 1 across the globe, including the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. The song returned to the Top 10 on the U.S. Rock chart 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 (which she described as "killer") on the day of her passing. The band decided to release the song in her honor with all BAD WOLVES' proceeds going to her children.
BAD WOLVES, which is managed by Zoltan Bathory of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, consists of of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-DIVINE HERESY, SNOT), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DEVILDRIVER), guitarist Doc Coyle (VAGUS NERVE, ex-GOD FORBID), guitarist Chris Cain (BURY YOUR DEAD) and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-IN THIS MOMENT).
Diamante has previously opened for WHITESNAKE and STEEL PANTHER. The 21-year-old, turquoise-tressed, Mexican-Italian-American musician is sure to wow audiences with her signature brand of sultry attitude and rock swagger on tour this summer and on her debut album, "Coming In Hot" — featuring the viral title track and lead single "Had Enough" — out June 15. It is produced and mixed by Howard Benson (CHRIS CORNELL, KELLY CLARKSON, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, HALESTORM). Her five-track collection, "Volume 1", is out now.
