New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, have released a re-imagined version of their track ‘Help Me Through The Night’, featuring guest vocals from Sleeping With Sirens’ frontman Kellin Quinn.
‘Help Me Through The Night’ originally featured on the band’s 13-track debut album ‘Secrets’ released in late 2019. The song questions the role of fate in the dark times. “People often talk about fate in the good times but not so much when things go wrong. It is about questioning your place in the world and hoping that the struggles you are going through in life aren’t ‘meant to be’. However, the underlying message in this song is hope. Hope that what you are going through is not preordained and is within your control to change,” says Written By Wolves vocalist Michael Murphy.
He adds, “Working with Kellin has elevated this track beyond anything we had ever imagined – hearing someone of his calibre, who we respect immensely, singing one of our songs has been nothing short of a dream come true. When we sent him the track, he came back to us straight away to let us know how excited he was to be involved. He said he would have it back to us by the end of the week but he actually finished it that night!”
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 310,000 monthly listeners and more than 36 million streams on Spotify, as well as over 100,000 subscribers and 46 millions views on YouTube.
‘Help Me Through The Night’ is the first in a series of collaborations to be released as an EP later in the year as part of ‘The Collab Project’ – more details coming soon.
