Cranberries.com : new official website launched today

September 21, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Title says it all.
After 9 months of patience cranberries.com is finally launched!
The band just announced it a couple of hours ago today on all their social medias.

news-2016-09-21-cranberries-website-launched-today

Three things to notice:
1. The image on the homepage features green and orange stripes (color of the Irish flag)
Could that be a preview of the artwork of the band’s upcoming album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra?
2. Gallery has a lot of new pictures.
3. Biography reveals “2017 promises to be a very, very special year for The Cranberries in terms of touring and recording.”

The Hand wishes a belated birthday to Dolores O’Riordan

September 21, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, Other News

These past days The Hand, the very famous cartoonist in The Cranberries world, was very prolific and drew several portraits of Dolores O’Riordan.
Yesterday he published his final work on the Internet as a GIF called “12DoloreS”
followed by a post on his Twitter account today with a message revealing his real intention:

actually and intentionally it was a GIF(t) for her birthday .. but I was late, as usual :/
 

Unfortunately it seems it won’t turn into a new “Calendolores” 😉

As the animation goes quite fast, you may have missed some drawings!
You’ll thus find below all his BRILLIANT sketches extracted from the GIF as well as the images they are related to (as usual click on each picture to see it larger):

Let’s note that we just learnt in a brand new interview of Andy Rourke given by website Cryptic Rock that the two release date postponements they had to went through (release was first supposed to take place in May, then August, then September) were due to “some problems with artwork”. Click here to read the whole interview.

The Cranberries in concert in Lima, Perú… now (almost) official

September 14, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those who were expecting nothing more to happen for The Cranberries or D.A.R.K. late 2016 following all the concerts and tour cancellations, you were wrong!
Dolores O’Riordan Spain, just found out a great new clue which (almost) comes as an official confirmation that The Cranberries will indeed play in Lima, Perú on December 17, 2016 at Festival Vivo X El Rock 8 in just 3 months from now!
Indeed, the rock band Papa Roach just published on their Instagram account the festival line-up featuring The Cranberries. What was a possible mistake published by Bandsintown a few days ago turns out to be a spoiler.

news-2016-09-14-papa-roach-instagram-lima-peru

Will there be more South/North American dates to come? What about the D.A.R.K. shows Andy Rourke was hoping to add in North America?
Time will tell…

Thanks to DORSpain for finding this.

New Cranberries box set to be released on October 7th

September 12, 2016  |  8 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Although it might seem out of the blue, it looks like Universal Music is about to (rerere)release almost all The Cranberries albums/sessions (?) on October 7th, 2016…

Indeed, the below item has just appeared on different websites such as Amazon or eBay under the name “5 Classic Albums”.

news-2016-09-12-tc-5-classic-albums-boxset

The box set should contain five CDs although Amazon states there is “one disc” inside.
Indeed, if you search for the Universal 5 Classic Albums collection on the Internet, you’ll find box sets for different artists such as Status Quo, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others, that all include five discs.

We can thus imagine the box set features the band’s first five albums Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We, No Need To Argue, To The Faithful Departed, Bury The Hatchet and Wake Up And Smell The Coffee.

This is only an assumption, but what’s for sure is that the cover of the box set looks just GREAT !

The Cranberries rumored to play in Lima, Perú this December

September 12, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Can we trust Bandsintown?
As some fans have noticed already, a new date appeared on The Cranberries official Facebook “Tour” section last night: it thus seems the band is to play festival “Vivo x El Rock” in Lima, Perú on December 17th.

news-2016-09-12-tc-fb-tour-dates-with-lima-peru

However, let’s note that this date was not officially confirmed by the band nor the festival yet, and that Bandsintown sometimes announces wrong dates due to some keywords misunderstandings.

According to media Peru21.pe and LaRepublica.pe, Papa Roach, Garbage and Simple Plan are already confirmed on this edition’s lineup.

Let’s thus hope for South American fans that this is going to happen, and that some more dates will be announced around this time on the continent.

We’ll keep you updated on this as soon as we have some more news.

EDIT 9:30 am GMT: It seems the date was just taken down from Bandsintown… was that just another keyword mistake or was the official statement spoiled?

Update on Science Agrees release

September 9, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Still keeping you updated on Science Agrees release as it seems some fans were lucky enough to get their hands on a hard copy of the album today!!!

You can check below a pic of the CD, case, booklet published by DORSpain.
(As usual click on the picture to see it larger)

news-2016-09-09-sa-dorspain-scan

We used this occasion to update Credits & Lyrics in our discography, have a look at them.

So… if you managed to get a physical copy of the album, please let us know where it is available to help the desperate fans who cannot find it!
What we know for sure is that no one has been able to buy it in any store in France at the moment.
Tell us more about the availability in your country.

UPDATE:
It seems the album is on sale in Spain (Fnac stores), and in the UK.
Impossible to find it in France / Germany / Netherlands.

Also, to celebrate this release, let’s note D.A.R.K. posted a very cool vid on their Facebook account which you can watch below.

Last, numerous articles are being published to cover this release. Let’s thus put forward this very cool interview of Andy Rourke given to Yahoo Music that should get Smiths fans into this side project 😉

“Science Agrees” is here and Elvis has left the building…

September 9, 2016  |  Comments Off on “Science Agrees” is here and Elvis has left the building…  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

D.A.R.K.’s debut album “Science Agrees” has finally arrived… at least on streaming platforms. As reported earlier, it might be a little more tricky to find hard copies. Please let us know if you can find the album in your local record store today!

Elvis has left the building…
On the other hand, “The D.A.R.K. Project” launched by Pledge Music has just closed. If you haven’t yet preordered your album(s) or signed album(s) it’s too late now. A few minutes ago, at midnight exactly (UK time), all the special offers have closed.

news-2016-09-09-dark-project-has-closed

Earlier this week Pledge Music already cut off the sale of the “Signed Screen Print” probably due to the small sales of this henceforth very collector item. Take a look at the website Cranberryesque, this is perfectly explained. Anyway time is now over for all the items. For information less than 20 “Signed LPs” and more than 300 “Signed CDs” remained.


UPDATE 0:30 AM (UTC):
One of our readers -Max Cranfan, thanks to him- has just informed us on Facebook that his vinyl copy has shipped from Amazon UK. Some lucky fans will definitely receive a physical album possibly later today. What a great news!!!
