According to Fergal on The Cranberries Official Site, the band has now begun rehearsals for their second and final recording session for their upcoming fifth album, still untitled. Guitarist Noel, who was absent for the rehersals in late March, returned to Ireland on the 2nd of this month to join the band. Recording is scheduled to pick up again on Monday.
On a site note, Fergal also noted that he attended a concert of The Stereo MC’s two weeks ago in Limerick. “It was their second gig in seven years (the first being the previous night in Galway) although going by their performance you wouldn’t suspect it. Well worth checking out if you are in the mood for a good boogie!”
Also, if you’ve got a band that you’re trying to publicize, Fergal’s also got some tips on sending out demo tapes, so check out the official page if you’re interested.
