New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, are today releasing their record, The Collab Project (Purchase/Stream Here), along with a videoclip for single Secrets featuring legendary P.O.D vocalist Sonny Sandoval not only in the song but in the video as well!

The Collab Project features tracks re-imagined from their previous record SECRETS, a record streamed over 10 million times on Spotify alone – and showcases collaborations with artists such as Trenton Woodley from Hands Like HousesKellin Quin from Sleeping with SirensSonny Sandoval from P.O.D.Becks and Sydney Rae White of The Wild Things.

Michael Murphy, vocalist for the band, says of the new single/video: “Sonny was one of my teenage heroes growing up. I listened to the Satellite album every day as a teenager, in fact I’m pretty sure my high school band even covered ‘Alive’. I’m not sure I’ll ever forget the first reply from Sonny saying he loved what we were doing and was all in for the project. The passion and power that he brings to everything he does is phenomenal and his voice is iconic. He is an absolute legend and we are still pinching ourselves that he is part of The Collab Project!

He went on to say that “We are so proud of The Collab Project and we are incredibly excited to have it out in the world. With any release there is a huge sense of nervousness and trepidation that comes with it, but, with this one that feeling is even more amplified. So many people have contributed, not just their voices, but their stories and we will never be able to thank them enough for that. This has become a real passion project for us and we hope it can mean as much to our fans as it does to us.”

Written By Wolves are a fresh and progressive cinematic rock band and one of the most exciting new rock acts to come from New Zealand in recent years. Renowned for their highly energetic live show, the band have already shared the stage with international heavyweights such as Machine Gun Kelly, Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendencies, We The Kings and Four Year Strong, to name just a few. Since forming in 2014, the band has amassed over 335,000 monthly listeners and more than 36 million streams on Spotify, as well as over 100,000 subscribers and 46 millions views on YouTube.

New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, are today releasing their latest cut from The Collab Project along with a videoclip for it, a track called Always & Forever, featuring NZ singer Becks. It can be streamed/purchased now at https://smarturl.it/wolvesforeverr.

The Collab Project will be released in full on September 17, featuring tracks re-imagined from their previous record SECRETS, a record streamed over 10 million times on Spotify alone – and featuring collaborations with artists such as Trenton Woodley from Hands Like HousesKellin Quin from Sleeping with SirensSonny Sandoval from P.O.D.Becks and Sydney Rae White of The Wild Things.

This track is a favourite of the band’s vocalist, Michael Murphy. “I know you aren’t meant to pick favourites amongst your kids, but this is probably my favourite track I’ve ever written. The concept behind this song is no matter what you are going through, no matter what is happening, if the world was about to end, who would you want to be with. I felt that situation and sentiment would strip your thoughts and decisions down to their most truthful and pure. From there, we set about creating a piece of music befitting of the sentiment.

This is made extra special for me as Becks is my wife. The song is written about her so to have her singing on it is a bit of a dream come true. After she had finished recording her parts we sat down and listened and it was as if I was hearing the song for the first time, as if this is how it was always meant to sound – and it had been right in front of me all along… With everything that has happened in the last year and half, the sentiment of this song feels even more fitting now.

Rebecca Wright (Becks) has enjoyed an illustrious career in the musical theatre industry, most recently performing the role of Fantine in Auckland’s sold out season of Les Miserables at the Civic Theatre. Previous highlights include the role of Oz in We Will Rock You at the Bruce Mason Centre, Eva Peron in Hamilton Operatic Society’s successful production of Evita at Hamilton’s Clarence St Theatre, the title role of Cinderella and Mimi in Rent – both staged at Auckland’s beloved Civic Theatre.
