“Shine Down” demo premiering now exclusively on billboard.com (UPDATED)

October 11, 2018  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Billboard.com just published a new interview with Noel Hogan featuring the track “Shine Down” that should be the “Nothing Left At All” cassette version of the song that we know (impossible to tell as their player does not seem to be working at the moment).

Noel interestingly mentions that he hopes the other Cranberries albums will be given the same anniversary treatment as Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We. However he notes that it “would be harder to find (bonus) things because with (Everybody Else…) we had all the years of build-up for us to get to that point, a lot of stuff between demos and gigs and things that we were able to include. The problem going forward is that album came out and became very successful, so everything we did after that was released or used straightaway. To find rarities may be a bit of a struggle — though I could be wrong. Things could pop up that I may have forgotten about“.

Definitely something fans should be able to help with 😉

Noel also confirms that the final Cranberries album, In The End, should be “very emotional, because of all the things that were going on in Dolores’ life“, and reasserts that “she was psyched about doing the album“, which makes “her death” something “very, very unfair” as “she was very, very positive” : “when she started writing this album it was all very positive and she couldn’t wait to get into the studio or back on the road again“, especially as the band was planning to tour in China in March.

“There’s a song called IN THE END” – interview on rollingstone.com

October 9, 2018  |  9 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Ahead of the 25th-anniversary reissue of EEIDI, rollingstone.com just published a new interview with guitarist Noel Hogan. He discusses the band’s early days as well as the upcoming final album with Dolores O’Riordan, “IN THE END” to be released early next year.

So there’s a song called “In the End,” it’s the last song on the album, and it just kind of summed up the whole album and the band. Because it’s definitely the end of it for us. So we’ve called it that. In the End. – Noel Hogan

“IN THE END” The Cranberries’ final album title amended by The Guardian (UPDATED)

September 14, 2018  |  20 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Guardian just edited their online version of their interview with the lads as there were a few mistakes. Read below the notification added in the very last lines:

This story was updated to correct two errors. The Aer Lingus incident occurred in 2014, not 2016. At the time of her death, O’Riordan was in London to mix a record with her side project D.A.R.K, not to record vocals for Bad Wolves.

Furthermore, the article now features another amendement regarding the name of the album. “THIS IS THE END” has now been replaced by “IN THE END”… Could that be another mistake that hasn’t been listed in their “update list”?

Let’s not numerous fans have already been commenting on how heartbreaking “This Is The End” sounds, so let’s hope this time The Guardian got the title right…

1st version with “This Is The End”

2nd version with “In The End”


UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 14 – 3:30 PM (UTC)

The guardian edited their online article for the second time, again amending errors, although this time the name of the album hasn’t changed. So now looks very likely that “In The End” will be the title of the ultimate album.

We may thus wonder if this was a mistake from the journalist – as we can imagine that The Guardian would have listed this error on their “update list” while amending the article for the 2nd time – or if the band has decided to change the title between Sept 3rd and yesterday, thus requiring an amendment once the article was already printed.

3rd version still with “In The End”

Here’s also below the hard copy of the newspaper, shared by ‘The Cranberries Newspaper’ on Facebook, thanks to them. It appears that the printed paper features a different photo of the lads and the first version of the article, meaning the album title mentioned is “This Is The End”.

RTÉ apologizes regarding the ‘Joe Jackson tapes revisited’

September 7, 2018  |  26 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday, September 6th, RTÉ published an apology regarding the ‘Joe Jackson tapes revisited’ show which aired last week on Radio 1.
As pointed earlier by our team and other fans, the broadcast appeared to feature a ten minutes interview of Sinead Lohan from 1998 that was incorretly attributed to Dolores O’Riordan. Moreover, “there was a clear inference that the members of The Cranberries band had used drugs”.
A correction and apologies from RTÉ were thus in order.

EEIDI 25th Anniversary boxset: tracklist details confirmed

August 29, 2018  |  Comments Off on EEIDI 25th Anniversary boxset: tracklist details confirmed  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Amazon.co.uk is currently updating their pages with some more details that pretty much come as a confirmation of our tracklist guess:

Indeed, disc 2 will be featuring:
– probably already known b-sides versions released on the Complete Sessions 1991-1993 (tracks 5-10)
– Uncertain EP (tracks 11-14)
– Dreams unmixed demo (track 15)
– Dreams pop mixed demo (track 21)
– “early demos” that seem to be those featured on the Water Circle tape (16-20) though Shine Down wasn’t on the tape, which means these could be unknown demos!

Unfortunately, no info yet as per this Íosa version which is featured on the “studio/demo” CD so fingers crossed this hopefully shouldn’t be one of the known live versions.

As for disc 3, it looks that it will indeed feature the live recording of the band’s July 31st 1994 performance at Féile festival.

Although disc 4 no longer appears on the page, it’s pretty clear to us it will feature the following radio shows : 1991 Dave Fanning Show (1-4), 1992 John Peel Show (5-8), 1993 Dave Fanning Show (9-12)
