New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, have released a version of Linkin Park’s ‘Papercut’ as a gift for fans this holiday season.
Vocalist Michael Murphy says of the track, “‘Without Linkin Park there is every chance that Written By Wolves would not exist. They paved the way for our band and for many others like ours and were pioneers of a whole new sound. We have talked for a long time about recording a tribute to Linkin Park – especially since the tragic loss of Chester. With all that has happened in the last 2 years we figured now was the time – a last minute holiday gift to our fans to end 2021…’
The band’s latest EP, The Collab Project, released earlier this year, is a collection of re-imagined collaborations of tracks from their debut album ‘Secrets’. Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.), Trenton Woodley (Hands Like Houses), Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), and others collaborated on tracks for the EP.
