The box sets of The Ultimate Live Collection Volume 2 have just been shipped by Concert Live for once perfectly on time. Some fans already received their box and here below are the first photos:

TULCV2a

First thing you immediately notice is its size. It is almost half of the Volume 1 box which was way too large if you remember (see CW photo-review of the Volume 1 by clicking here).

TULCV2b

Size of the Volume 1: 29 x 23 x 12cm
Size of the Volume 2: 21 x 17 x 9cm

This time the 4 CD’s inside fit better!

TULCV2c

TULCV2d

This is the exact same red/cranberries color 🙂 as the Volume 1.
It is interesting to note that for an unknown reason some fans received a white version of the Volume 1 which is quite weird and very collector!
Here’s the white box (on the left) received by Cranberries Mexico among a lot of other goodies ordered:

TULC white version

Will there be a white version of the Volume 2?
Time will tell…

The content of this new box is exactly as announced by Concert Live:
2 live albums recorded on the 2010 Reunion Tour and 2 live albums recorded on the Roses Tour.

  • Live at Mediolanum Forum, Milano – 16.mar.2010
  • Live at Zénith, Paris – 22.mar.2010
  • Live at Hammersmith Apollo, London – 02.oct.2012

Launch of D.A.R.K. official website

March 23, 2016  |  Comments Off on Launch of D.A.R.K. official website  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

D.A.R.K. official website is now online!

2016.03.23 website launch

This way, the band thus confirmed the 5 European shows in May previously announced this morning, which our team was able to find mostly via ticket sales companies.

The website also features a brand new complete biography of the band as well as an online shop on which fans can order signed versions of Science Agrees CD and LP & a signed screen print!!!

Let’s note that it seems only Dolores and Andy Rourke signed/will sign this last item. Suprisingly, Olé Koretsky is not mentioned, which is a bit of a pity as he’s one of the original Jetlag NYC band members… or is it a mistake from the website?

2016.03.23 bio off

Thanks to Richard for noticing as well.

D.A.R.K. first ever performances with Dolores announced!

March 23, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

A fan who lives in Dublin found out this morning on Ticketmaster.ie – an official ticket sales company – that D.A.R.K. will be performing on Monday May 16, 2016 at Whelan’s in Dublin!

DARK


UPDATE AT 11:30 AM (CET)
Second date added in Paris at Divan du Monde on Friday May 20th as per French promoter website

dark_admat_20x30


UPDATE AT 1:00 PM (CET)
Two other dates have just been added on Ticketmaster.co.uk
Bush Hall, London – Wednesday May 18th
Dolans Warehouse, Limerick – Friday May 13th


UPDATE AT 1:10 PM (CET)
Italy added!!!
Tunnel Club, Milano – Monday May 23rd

Dublin tickets to go on sale tomorrow morning on March 24th at 9:00 AM (GMT).
As far as Paris tickets are concerned, pre-sale tomorrow at 9:00 AM (GMT), general on sale should take place later.

These performances are the first ever concerts of D.A.R.K. announced since Dolores O’Riordan has joined the band. All these venues’ capacity is less than 500 people, which sounds quite exciting.

We believe some more shows should be announced in Europe around these ones today or during the week.

Many thanks to Johann Rosales who first shared the info for Dublin show.

7efc3f8dfb26dca477220f4fc161e710b8746711
First thing fans will notice is that both Olé Koretsky and Dolores seem to be singing on the track. We don’t know yet if that’s the case on all tracks of the album.

So… what do you guys think about it 🙂 ? Good one, yeah?


UPDATE 3:30 PM (UTC)

“Curvy” lyrics can be found on the Song List-A-Z section.
Please let us know if you think we got some words wrong.


UPDATE 3:40 PM (UTC)

Fourth song of the album Steal You Away was performed live before in 2012, before Dolores got to join the band. You can watch the performance below:

According to Billboard the debut album from alternative rock act D.A.R.K., featuring The Cranberries vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, former Smiths bassist Andy Rouke and Olé Koretsky is announced for May 27th on Cooking Vinyl in the USA. The London-based label is expanding its US operations with the opening of a full service label division.

On the other hand Rey Roldan, a music publicist based in New Jersey posted on Facebook last March 7th the following message:

And… we welcome DARK featuring DJ/Producer/Musician Olé Koretsky, Dolores O’Riordan (of The Cranberries) and Andy Rourke (of The Smiths) to the Reybee stable

2016.03.07 Rey Roldan

Well, it seems things are moving on the DARK side… but what about The Cranberries?
The DARK debut album is supposed to be released when The Cranberries will be about to tour in Europe.
Will Dolores be able to do both projects… probably YES!

Thanks to Sara who we are happy to welcome in our team!
