One-year anniversary contest [update #2]

Last update about our one-year anniversary contest:
First, we’d like to thank all those who participated, you were more than expected and we do appreciate that.

2012.11.22 poster 1

The answer of the question was of course Ode To My Family, which most of you got right, although many got confused with Roses, a song Dolores dedicated to her father. One of you also answered No Need To Argue, a 1994 song which is very likely to be written about Dolores’ relationship with first boyfriend Mike Mahoney (although it has never been confirmed by any of the band members).
Click here to read the interview excerpt we posted in November in which Dolores explains she can’t sing Ode To My Family any more because the song reminds her too much of her father.

Anyway, congratulations to our 10 winners. Note that one of them decided to let someone else have his poster which had us drawing an 11th name by lot.
Beauvais & Brest posters are now all ready for shipping. Feel free to take pictures of them hanging on your walls once they reach you, and send those to us 😉

Again, thanks to Anne @ Ginger and Aude @ GDP.

“Fire & Soul” is the third single… in Russia

It looks like some of the local labels distributing The Cranberries’ new album didn’t give up on a promotion of “Roses” in some regions. Ten months after the album release, Fire & Soul becomes the third promo single in Russia.

One-year anniversary contest [update]

Well well well guys, 6 other posters were given to us (a big thank you to Aude @ GDP) so that we can please a total of 10 winners.

These 6 more are actually posters from the concert in Brest (France) instead of Beauvais.
We’re thus sending over 6 new emails to those of you whose name was drawn by lot. Check your mailboxes!!!!!

To recap these 6 new winners will receive a Brest poster when the very first 4 winners (already emailed 3 days ago) will receive a Beauvais one.
Complete list of winners & picture of the new poster to come soon.

Cranberries World’s one-year anniversary !!!

January 14, 2013  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Other News

Dear ‘Berries fans,

Cranberries World’s team members celebrate their one-year anniversary today !
We’re quite happy of how things have been going so far and are determined to go on like this. By the way, we’re currently working hard on improving our Discography section in order to make it the most complete as possible, which explains the lack of updates recently.

To celebrate properly, we thought we could launch a small contest to give away a couple of unused posters we managed to get in France on the last tour (thanks to Anne).
So if you’re interested in winning a large 120×80 cm poster of the concert in Beauvais (France), email us the answer to the following question to contest[at]cranberriesworld[dot]com before January, 20th:

Which song Dolores did not feel like singing on the European leg of the Roses tour due to the recent death of her father?

We’ll then draw lots to determine the winners who we’ll contact via email.


Now to leave you with a funny news on this special day, we recently discovered on YouTube an unusual video of The Cranberries gig in Caen (France) which was filmed in 3D by a member of the audience. It is one song only: Dreams.
Some of us tried to watch it with “anaglyph” glasses (simple red and cyan ones), and it worked !
We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did, and are truly grateful for your support during this first year.

Cranberriesly Yours,

CW Team
