“Zombie” Music Video has hit 1 Billion 100 Million views

April 18, 2021  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The “Zombie” Music Video has hit another 100 Million views exactly a year after getting 1 billion views on YouTube. 100 Million views a year looks like its cruising speed!

iTunes made the song available for 69 cents. As a result, it got back on Billboard charts, not just arriving at its peak position on the hot alternative songs charts (#13) on 9 April 2021,

but hitting another #1 milestone (alternative digital sales charts), still on 9 April 2021.
Awesome!

Thanks to Seamus and Benjamin Alexander for the info!

Limerick locals to organize a “Remember Dolores” podcast

January 4, 2021  |  Comments Off on Limerick locals to organize a “Remember Dolores” podcast  |  by Axl  |  Other News

This year will mark Dolores’ third anniversary as the world still faces the covid pandemic.
In this context, locals won’t be able to pay tribute to Dolores as they’ve now gotten used to on January 15th, mingling with fans travelling from abroad.

The organiser of 2019’s “Piano for Dolores” and 2020’s “In The End” remembrance events in Limerick has therefore partnered once again with the Limerick Arts Office and the Irish Arts Council to release a “Remember Dolores” podcast” on January 15th that will also be broadcast on the local radios.

The idea is to invite international fans and followers of The Cranberries and Dolores to share their memories, stories, poetries or songs and send these audio memories via messenger for these to be featured in the podcast, along with testimonies from local Limerick folks who witnessed the early days of the band.

For those of you who would like to contribute to this podcast, all information can be found on this link.

Never heard before “Dreams” demo has surfaced

October 19, 2020  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A never heard before demo of “Dreams” from 1990 was published 2 days ago on YouTube. According to YouTube user AGMP – a concert promoter in the UK – this one was produced and paid for by EPIC RECORDS who were considering signing the band.

This very rare version has a spoken intro and differs from all the demos we already know of, although it does sound a bit like a less mixed version of the Xeric demo without the intro.

Stuart Clark, from Hot Press, once mentioned that “Dreams” had a spoken word intro for a brief period, so this is likely the version he was talking about! PURE GEM.

Thanks to Cranberries Library for noticing.
