US album to contain bonus tracks!

August 31, 2001  |  Comments Off on US album to contain bonus tracks!  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

As if your wait for “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee” couldn’t get any harder, we Americans (and the rest of the world for that matter) have even more coming to them in October.

The official site confirmed today that there will be four distinctly different versions of “Wake Up”: Japanese, UK, North American and International version. Each version will contain bonus tracks not found on the other versions. However, all four versions will contain the thirteen tracks of the previously-revealed tracklist. But with the recent revelation that the Japanese version will only contain one bonus track, it’s possible that one exclusive bonus track may be standard on all four editions.

“Live From The Lounge” setlist, info

August 30, 2001  |  Comments Off on “Live From The Lounge” setlist, info  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The Star 98.7 “Live From The Lounge” performance and interview was aired Tuesday night as scheduled in LA. The entire show was acoustic, with the following tracklist:

1. Dreams
2. Analyse
3. Every Morning
4. Linger
5. Free to Decide
6. Never Grow Old
7. Time is Ticking Out

The entire show was an hour and a half, with lots of interviews. Topics included the “Analyse” video, the upcoming 2002 tour, their kids — even the laughable fact Dolores is still trying to get her Driver’s License!
The band requested “Elevation” by U2 while on the show, and also discussed their relationship with Bono. In fact, about a year and a half ago, Bono played some of his new album for Dolores, in of all places, a bathroom!

Thanks to Lionel Vasquez and Priscilla Avila for the info.

Paid picture service WireFrame has 8 new live photos, taken from the August 18th Roxy gig. Because the service is for news agencies, etc., (and because we have a budget of $0) the free images below are only small samples. However, they’re still pretty damned cool for free, so check em out below.

“Analyse” trade magazine ad

August 27, 2001  |  Comments Off on “Analyse” trade magazine ad  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

A new advertisement for “Analyse” can be found circulating various trade ads in the US, this one from Radio – Music – Hits Magazine. In case you aren’t familiar with “trade magazines”, they’re industry-geared magazines that feature industry/label news, etc, and usually many ads (such as this one) to advertise upcoming releases or boast about sales.

Alternate “Analyse” radio promo CD

August 26, 2001  |  Comments Off on Alternate “Analyse” radio promo CD  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Yet another “Analyse” promo is out there in this great big world of ours. Same tracks (radio edit and album version), new art! We have no indication of what region this is from (although I would guess Europe). However, instead of the band-in-the-feild shots, the minimalist cover has only stylized black text on a white background, whereas the CD has the inverse.

The Cranberries make surprise MusiquePlus appearance

August 25, 2001  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries make surprise MusiquePlus appearance  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

As predicted by The Herald days earlier, The Cranberries made a live appearance on music channel MusiquePlus yesterday during their stop in Montréal. The special, which started at 4 PM EST, started off with an interview of the band. The band discussed the current “baby boom” within the band. The interviewer, who was lucky enough to hear all 13 tracks from the new album, said that it did indeed sound like a mix of their previous four works and overall has a positive feel.

During the show, the band was presented with a plaque for over 2 million (and nearly 3 million) in sales in Canada for the band’s albums. The band was awarded a similar plaque by MusiquePlus in May 1999 for the #1 chart position of BTH and sales in excess of 1 million for that album.

Music videos for Dreams, Zombie, and Salvation were aired. But the real surprise of the show was the world premiere of the video for “Analyse,” which doesn’t get aired globally until next month. Watchers were able to see a full minute of the video (but not the entire video). The clip begins as a man walks out of a traffic sign. Dolores is then seen with dark short hair on a highway as the cars speed past her in fast forward mode. Meanwhile, the rest of the band stay seated comfortably in chairs, not playing instruments.

Thanks to all the people on the discussion board for the help.

Analyse 3″ CD to release?

August 23, 2001  |  Comments Off on Analyse 3″ CD to release?  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Dutch music distributor Enetersys is currently taking preorders for the European release of “Analyse”. Normally, this wouldn’t be newsworthy, however, the site states that the single will be released in 3-inch CD format, something that doesn’t happen often. The last major 3″ Cranberries CD was the Japanese release of “I Can’t Be With You” in 1995.

We will await confirmation of this, so stay tuned for more info on Analyse soon!
Thanks to Jessica for the news tip.

“Family Problems” cited for Noel’s absence

August 23, 2001  |  Comments Off on “Family Problems” cited for Noel’s absence  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Those lucky enough to attend the intimate gigs of the current US promo tour have speculated much on the absence of Cranberries guitarist Noel Hogan. The Cranberries E-mail Newsletter was able to chat briefly yesterday with Cranberries backup singer Steve Demarchi regarding Noel’s absence, among other topics. Demarchi is currently filling in for Noel on lead guitar. He told the Newsletter that Noel was back at home tending to “family problems”. Of course, fans needn’t fear too much — Demarchi assures that Noel fully intends to remain an active member of the band.

Demarchi also had some tidbits on the next world tour. The tour will begin in January or February of 2002, but the exact date will depend on album sales of “Wake Up”. In addition, the band hopes to begin the tour in a region that is “warm”, which can leave some speculation — South America? Mexico? Africa? Australia?
