The Cranberries concerts in Cancún rescheduled to February 2017

August 19, 2016  |  9 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Following the cancellation of The Cranberries concert in Landerneau, France, due to Dolores’ back problem which prevented her to perform, Palace Resorts just confirmed a moment ago that the Mexican dates due to take place August 26, 27 and 28 will be rescheduled to February 10, 11 & 12 2017

2016.08.19 cancun rescheduled

2016.08.19 cancun new dates

Here’s the official announcement:

UPDATE THE CRANBERRIES: Due to circumstances of force majeure, Palace Resorts regrettably confirms three upcoming performances by The Cranberries scheduled to take place at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun on August 26, 27 and 28, 2016, have been rescheduled. The unexpected announcement is due to the unfortunate medical condition of an injury affecting Dolores O’Riordan, the band’s lead singer.

After several weeks of experiencing severe back pain caused by a bulging disc; sore and limited relief from medications prevented Dolores to go on stage, and the band was forced to cancel their last concert in France. “By now she’s simply not well enough and in too much pain to be able to perform”; said Dr. Masterson of Limerick University.

Regaining her health and ability to perform has been a priority for Dolores in the last few days. Unfortunately, the severe pain and swelling have not allowed her to recover and Dolores has been prescribed with complete rest.

Performances from The Cranberries at Moon Palace Arena will now take place on February 10, 11 and 12, 2017.

Guests who had already reserved tickets through our telemarketing or concierge staff for the shows may contact their assigned agent before September 23, 2016 to confirm their seats for the new dates. After this date, reservations will be forfeit.
For those who purchased tickets for these performances, please see detailed information below regarding new performances on February 10, 11 and 12th, 2017 at Moon Palace Arena:
• If your ticket was for the Friday, August 26, 2016 concert, you can use that ticket to go to the Friday, February 10, 2017 concert.
• If your ticket was for the Saturday, August 27, 2016 concert, you can use that ticket to go to the Saturday, February 11, 2017concert.
• If your ticket was for the Sunday, August 28, 2016 concert, you can use that ticket to go to the Sunday, February 12, 2017 concert.
If you cannot be present for the new dates, you can request a full refund as of Wednesday, August 24, 2016, and until Friday, September 23, 2016.
• If you bought your ticket at an authorized Ticketmaster retail location (e.g. Liverpool, Librerías Gandhi, Farmacias del Ahorro, etc.), please go to the retail location directly.

We sincerely apologize for this unavoidable inconvenience and disappointment and send our best wishes to Dolores O’Riordan so she may recover fully. We also thank the fans and followers of The Cranberries for your understanding and solidarity.

We wish Dolores a prompt recovery.

“All Things Considered/Why Music Matters” old interview with Dolores

August 6, 2016  |  Comments Off on “All Things Considered/Why Music Matters” old interview with Dolores  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

One of our readers just sent us a link of an old and rare interview with Dolores O’Riordan recorded in 2012 a few months after the death of her father.

Broadcast on the US radio NPR, the music program is called “All Things Considered”.
They launched a new series called “Why Music Matters: stories from fans in their own words about how music has changed their lives”.

Nathan Hotchkiss.

Nathan Hotchkiss

In this episode you can listen to the story of Nathan Hotchkiss explaining how The Cranberries music helped him coming to terms with his identity. For sure a nice moment to be shared and there’s a happy surprise at the end of the 8min audio clip as he had the chance to exchange a few words with Dolores herself who seems to be touched by his story.

Download and/or listen to the show by clicking this link.
Thanks to Lionel for the information!

2012.02.10 show 1
Note: NPR might sound familiar to fans as the radio also recorded a Cranberries promo performance in 2012 for “All Songs Considered/Tiny Desk Concert”. Unclear whether this was recorded the same day or not.

CONFIRMED: Cranberries “Greatest Hits” album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra

August 3, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., The Cranberries

The English magazine “Classic Pop” published in their current August/September issue a brand new interview with D.A.R.K., the first one featuring Dolores.

2016.08.03 CP cover
Even if this interview is totally focused on D.A.R.K., one part retains the reader’s attention more than the others as “Classic Pop” is the very first media to officially confirm what Cranberries World team member Jury exposed/guessed a few months ago:

THE CRANBERRIES ARE/WERE RECORDING AN ALBUM WITH THE IRISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA.

DOLORES: (…) at the time I felt like it (Roses) was going to be the last album, but the years go by, things happen in your life and you end up together.

A cranberries ‘greatest hits’ album is due to be recorded soon with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and that project co-exists with the debut album by D.A.R.K.

Dolores and the boys probably had not recorded anything when this interview was done, and to this day it is unclear whether the lads totally finished all their tracks/parts nor if Dolores even started recording hers. Anyway, this is definitely good news for all The Cranberries fans.

The rest of the interview, the main part, is still very interesting as it’s the very first time we get to read Dolores’ point of view about D.A.R.K.’s project:

DOLORES: It’s a very different way of working to how The Cranberries operate (…) This project is completely different than anything else I have worked on and I’d have to call it unique. It wasn’t contrived in any way. It just kinda happened and became the sound that it was.

 

OLE KORETSKY: Apart from the Seventies wannabee purists, 90% of bands these days are using programs. Everybody is playing to a click track! The Cranberries are one of the bands who don’t do that. Them, AC/DC, and The Rolling Stones are just rocking out! It’s a very different vibe.

Dolores also talks about the tough days, the time she spent in a psychiatric hospital, the help received from doctors and family and the fact she is feeling better now. Some parts of “Science Agrees” were recorded during this turmoil. Working on D.A.R.K.’s songs was a sort of therapy.

DOLORES: I was manic when I was recording Gunfight”.

A selfie for Dolores / An artwork for “Gunfight”

July 27, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

2016.07.27 D selfie

So rare it has to be shared!!!
Dolores took her first ever selfie today and posted it on her Facebook account with the following words:

Hello Facebook!!
This is my first selfie….ever!
I got a few days off from The Cranberries tour so I thought I’d give Facebook a crack…. It’s great to be back on the road with Mike, Noel and Ferg and I’m really looking forward to the September DARK tour with Andy and Ole. New DARK songs are here: https://DARK.lnk.to/SA
Sending you all my love…Dolores xo

On the other hand and following the news about Science Agrees new release date and Gunfight‘s availability on streaming platforms, the fansite Cranberryesque discovered on Spotify that the song had its own artwork:

2016.07.27 Gunfight single artwork

What a day!!

“Science Agrees” confirmed for September 9th (physical and digital)

July 27, 2016  |  Comments Off on “Science Agrees” confirmed for September 9th (physical and digital)  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

As previously suspected, the album “Science Agrees” has been delayed a second time, this was officially confirmed on D.A.R.K.’s Facebook account today in their post regarding Gunfight‘s availability on streaming platforms for all to listen.

Check out our new song ‘Gunfight’! Watch the video or pre-order ‘Science Agrees’ here: https://DARK.lnk.to/SA If you pre-order digitally, you’ll get three tracks instantly, ‘Curvy’, ‘Loosen The Noose’ and ‘Gunfight’.
Also, our album release date is now September 9th.

2016.07.27 SA new release date

The band also updated their Facebook cover photo.
The new release date is thus now set on September 9th both for digital and physical copies all over the world. PledgeMusic just extended pre-order time from 23 to 44 days (but still lists the release date as May 27th though!!).

This doesn’t explain why a few platforms still mention a release date on August 19th (such as Apple Music which just might not have been updated since this final postponement) and some September 23rd…

New interview with Andy Rourke from D.A.R.K.

July 25, 2016  |  Comments Off on New interview with Andy Rourke from D.A.R.K.  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

“When Dolores came on board she brought a whole other dimension. It was like the missing link we’d been looking for.
(…)
Dolores was one of the lights of the recording process because you say ‘Woah’ and everything starts coming together.”

These words are extracts from the brand new interview published on Artistdirectinterviews.com who recently met Andy Rourke (Olé & Dolores were not interviewed here).
Possibly the most interesting interview about D.A.R.K. published to this day.
It is titled “D.A.R.K. discuss what matters on Sciences Agrees”

Read the interview by clicking this link

2016.07.25 ADI

The interviewer essentially focuses on D.A.R.K. and the album “Sciences Agrees” and goes straight to the point as he does not linger on cliché questions about The Smiths, The Cranberries or how they met.

Sure, some (very few) questions have been asked before in previous interviews you might have already read, but most of them are fresh. There are even a few funny parts, like Andy not being “good with the heat” or Olé not being “a happy-go-lucky guy unless he is complaining” ( 🙂 )

Andy confirms the will of the band “to do U.S. gigs this winter” and hopes to experience grounding/humbling moments again with D.A.R.K. like those he had with The Smiths, especially as “Dolores fans are very passionate”

The album is still announced for August 19th but the interview was probably recorded before the 2nd postponement… unless this 2nd postponement only concerns physical copies and not digital release?
Just in case you missed an episode “Science Agrees” is now announced for September 9th mostly everywhere and even for September 23rd in some places!

D.A.R.K.’s interview in “Louder Than War” magazine

July 13, 2016  |  Comments Off on D.A.R.K.’s interview in “Louder Than War” magazine  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

The UK magazine “Louder Than War” published in their last May/June 2016 issue a 2-page interview with Olé Koretsky and Andy Rourke from the band D.A.R.K.

2016.07.13 LTW news

The first page is focused on Andy Rourke and his past, essentially with The Smiths.
The second page is about D.A.R.K. from the early years to the Dolores years.

The guys talk about how they met back in 2003/2004, moving to New York, a bit of the writing process, the first rehearsals with Dolores, how different it is to record an album with D.A.R.K. compared to The Smiths and how proud and excited they are to finally put out this record as it was a long journey.

If you already read the past interviews published on the internet before (if you missed them see our interview section) you’ll notice the questions and answers are mostly the same. Anyway this is still interesting to read for the 1 or 2 new things to learn.

3 new promo videos for D.A.R.K.’s upcoming concerts

July 11, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

Quite a busy period these last days for Cranberries fans who do not know which way to turn: while the band is still touring Europe on their “Summer Tour 2016”, D.A.R.K. released 3 new videos to promote their upcoming September gigs in Europe.

You can check below these 3 videos published on 3 different medias, one for the Paris show on Vimeo (which for unknown reason became private, so we re-uploaded it on our YouTube account), one for the London show on Instagram and one for the Madrid show on Facebook.
Will there be more of these exciting videos to come?

 

¡Hola Madrid! El 27 de septiembre presentamos los temas de nuestro primer álbum “Science Agrees” en la sala Caracol. ¡No faltéis!
Consigue ya tus entradas en http://bit.ly/entradasDARK

Posted by DARK on Monday, 11 July 2016

 

What’s even more interesting is that, if you can hear some bits of “The Moon” on the Paris video, some fans noticed that the backing tracks on the other two videos (London & Madrid) are extracts from songs that actually do not appear on D.A.R.K.’s debut album as we know it!!

For those who would like to investigate on this, you might remember that all 10 tracks of “Science Agrees” are available as preview on Shazam as reported before.

It is definitely worth wondering what these new tracks are: unreleased tracks? hidden tracks on the album? or maybe the reason why the album was delayed to September 9th as the band might have chosen to change the tracklist at the very last minute?
Time will tell…

The Cranberries in concert at festival “La Nuit de l’Erdre”

July 3, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The “Summer Tour 2016” continues, this time in France near Nantes headlining festival “La Nuit de l’Erdre” in front of 17,000 fans. This was the 4th concert of this short tour and it was sold out once again.

The band just had a 3-week-break. Dolores and Johanna were arriving from the USA.
Johanna wrote on Twitter: “Jet lag in a hotel in France”
See Mike resting on his bed a few hours before the show as published on the band’s instagram.

2016.07.01 preshow 1

Perfectly on time (10:40 PM) and right when the other band playing the second stage finished their set, The Cranberries entered the main stage playing Analyse without intro. Not even 30 seconds between the 2 bands! This suddenness surprised everyone in the audience… especially when there’s no musical intro!
There was a few sound problems during the show. A possible contact failure on Noel’s Guitar (?)

2016.07.01 show 1

The Cranberries - Festival de la Nuit de l'Erdre 2016

2016-07-01-show-6

2016-07-01-show-17

2016-07-01-show-19

The setlist was the same as the other 3 European shows minus 2 songs, Loud And Clear and Desperate Andy. The show was shorter than expected, about 1h15 instead of 1h30. Hard to explain why as there was no curfew and the band was officially announced for a 1H30-show. As usual most of the crowd didn’t know/understand that Dreams was the last song and was expecting a second encore, especially as 15 minutes left. Plus The Cranberries not coming back to salute properly at the end of the show (as they always do 🙁 ) let a “we want more” feeling in the air.

Setlist, The Cranberries, La Nuit de l’Erdre (July 1, 2016):
01. Analyse
02. Animal Instinct
03. Wanted
04. Linger
05. When You’re Gone
06. Dreaming My Dreams
07. Just My Imagination
08. Ode To My Family
09. Free To Decide
10. I Can’t Be With You
11. Conduct
12. Schizophrenic Playboys
13. Salvation
14. Ridiculous Thoughts
15. Zombie
—–Encore—–
16. Empty
17. You And Me
18. Promises
19. Dreams
Outro: “Exodus” (Bob Marley & The Wailers)

2016.07.01 setlist

The CW team instagramed a few photos that day and tried to periscope a few things and the first 2 songs of the show. Sorry internet 3G was really poor on the site and the quality kinda sucks.
Nothing we can do about that.
Anyway here’s our HD video of Conduct recorded from the front row!

This is the part of the interview where all the American fans will become very happy.

2016.06.23 spill feature dark

Andy Rourke essentially talks about the musical vision of D.A.R.K. as he sees it, the manner of recording tracks, how Dolores was involved in the project, doing gigs and touring, as well as his musical legacy with The Smiths.

A new Cranberries album: “I wouldn’t say soon!”

June 20, 2016  |  Comments Off on A new Cranberries album: “I wouldn’t say soon!”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Here comes another interview of The Cranberries given at Festi’Neuch in Switzerland.
This time, Fergal and Noel answered questions for a local radio called RTN.

2016.06.09 RTN

Among a few questions about playing festivals, past hiatus or their families, a question (and an answer actually!!) about the next Cranberries album retains attention:

RTN: Is there a chance for us to have a new Cranberries album anytime soon?

Noel: Humm, yeah we’ve been talking about it, we’ve got to write this first… So I wouldn’t say soon… But hopefully we will start getting down to it as we kinda get more into the gigs.

Listen to the whole RTN interview (6min long) by clicking this link.

[Festi’Neuch] RadioFr.Fribourg interviewed Noel Hogan – Audio & Video

June 18, 2016  |  Comments Off on [Festi’Neuch] RadioFr.Fribourg interviewed Noel Hogan – Audio & Video  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A few hours before the show at Festi’Neuch in Switzerland last week, the radio “RadioFr.Fribourg” had the opportunity to interview Noel Hogan.

Hopefully next year we will be back to do more of our own gigs again…

NOEL HOGAN

The radio released the audio podcast (MP3):

 

On June 10th, the interviewer Jonathan Grossenbacher posted on his Twitter account a photo of that moment with a few words addressed to Noel: “Thanks for this amazing moment!”

And yesterday the radio posted the video on YouTube:

The interview is exactly the same, podcast and YouTube. The audio podcast is a just little longer only because “Just My Imagination” (album version) was aired at the end.

Thanks to The Cranberries Brasil & Dolores O’Riordan Spain for noticing.

“Science Agrees” pushed back to September… (UPDATED)

June 17, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

It seems the D.A.R.K.’s debut album “Science Agrees” has been delayed again… As seen in the last lines of the news yesterday the new release date is now set for September 9th in the USA.
An article on the US website Readjunk.com already talked about that last week.

Science Agrees

Also last week an article on RockChickenz.com announced the album for September 9th. The website/blog is based in Ireland so the release date announced in the article should concern Ireland (?).

And today another clue, the record shop Fnac in France and Belgium is now announcing the album for “September 2016”. This probably means the new release date for the whole Europe might be September 2016… and probably the 9th (or close) even if that information is not officially mentionned yet.

If USA and Europe have a new release date for September, there is a good chance that the new release date for the world is September as well. The album was originally planned for May 27th then delayed to August 19th and now delayed again to September… let’s hope this one is the right one!


UPDATE – June 23
“Science Agrees” delayed to September 9th on Amazon Germany and Amazon Italy today.
September 9th is on the way to be the new worldwide release date!

The 1st one is an older one already seen on social medias before but published for the very first time in very HQ (7.8MB) and the other 2 are totally new. All 3 pictures are credited Jen Maler and tagged as taken on April 5, 2016. Great ones!!

Also to notice on the Reybee’s website the album of D.A.R.K. is now announced for September 9.
This is possibly the release date for USA only as Reybee is in charge of the U.S.
The rest of the world is still announced for a release on August 19th…


EDIT: The 2nd picture has been published in a magazine called “Louder Than War” and can be ordered on this link. Have a glimpse of the article on Jen Maler Instagram.

The Cranberries rehearsing “Linger” for “The Bachelorette” TV Show

June 6, 2016  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries rehearsing “Linger” for “The Bachelorette” TV Show  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Andrew Kimmel producer of the TV Show “The Bachelorette” published a real gem 5 months ago on YouTube: a video of The Cranberries minus Mike and Fergal rehearsing Linger with a string quartet at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin mid-June 2015 for the Season 9 of the American TV Show “The Bachelorette”. This is a different version as the one aired on TV (again, this is taken from the rehearsal) but it’s very similar and this time it’s a full version. You might remember the episode didn’t air the whole song (only 2 minutes) and there were dialogues on it; take a look at the news CW wrote last year.
This new video is only one camera, one angle and there is extra time before and after the song.
And available in HD 1080, very cool!!

Thank You Mister Producer!

The Cranberries live in concert at Arena Lublin, first photos/videos

June 3, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The very first show of The Cranberries in a long time started a few minutes ago.
Unfortunately the live streaming announced yesterday was a fake. (All YouTube and Prostreamy links). Even The band officially announced the event on their Facebook and got fooled. Incredible how many scammers there are for this show!

Anyway the only way to follow the concert if you are not in Lublin tonight is social medias like Instagram, Twitter or Periscope. Here below the first photos taken by people at the Arena today. Authors will be credited a little later. More photos and information will come as the evening progresses…

Lublin to be broadcast live tomorrow + Meet and Greet contest (3UPDATES)

June 2, 2016  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

More surprises to come from Poland.
It seems the Lublin show will be broadcast live on YouTube as well as one other stuff.
Indeed 2 feeds are available on YouTube right now. They are displaying different timing.

The first one is clearly tomorrow’s show. It is perfectly announced as a live stream and time matches the usual schedule for a concert starting around 8:00 PM local time. The other one is more mysterious as the broadcast will begin in the morning. What is it exactly and where is it (the word “? No more information for now. Maybe fans understanding Polish might help. A possible a press conference, or soundcheck?? Clearly another surprise to come.
Die-hard fans!!!
It’s time to check if your streaming recorder is perfectly working and ready for tomorrow!!

On the other hand Arena Lublin launched a meet & greet contest on their Facebook.
15 Polish fans will have the chance to meet Mike, Noel and Fergal before the show tomorrow. Dolores is not officially announced but there is a good chance she will join.

And last, earlier today, the band unveiled on social medias the new backdrop for the Summer Tour: it will be the classic “The Cranberries” logo.
Looking great isn’t it?

2016.06.02 new backdrop22016.06.02 new backdrop1


UPDATE  – June 3 – 9:10 AM (UTC)
The unknown “morning” streaming have been delayed. it was supposed to start more than 1 hour ago. New schedule is NOON local time, (10:00 AM UTC). Starts in 50 minutes then… Still no information on what it could stream… surprise!


UPDATE  – June 3 – 10:20 AM (UTC)
BEWARE
Bad surprise!
One of our readers Kamil Urczyński reported on our Facebook that YouTube link was FAKE.

Here’s what Kamil says: “Link to youtube is fake, it will charge a fee for the sent sms to encourage subscriptions and paid surveys. Only true livestream is Prostreamy.pl”

Tomek, in the comments below, also posted about Prostreamy.pl

If any Polish fans can confirm, it would help a lot.
Indeed when you go to YouTube now, the streaming was supposed to start 20 minutes ago and nothing appears except a weird link below the video opening a new window where you are asked to enter a phone number. It seems Kamil says the truth, so watch out and report to YouTube if you can.

What’s for sure is that Lublin show will be broadcast live on the internet tonight. This was confirmed by The Cranberries this morning on their Facebook, but the band posted the same link as us. Even if both YouTube accounts are 2 different users the look is very close and the band might have been fooled as well. Let’s hope they’ll be able to confirm the correct link asap if YouTube link(s) really is/are fake.


UPDATE  – June 3 – 1:30 PM (UTC)
One of the fake YouTube account has been suspended!
The other, the one from the “morning” is still running so be careful.

BOTH ARE FAKE

We don’t know yet if there is a true live stream tonight.

The Cranberries are in Poland

June 1, 2016  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday, May 31st, the 3 lads were back on tour as seen on The Cranberries Instagram. Nice photo taken in a car with Noel driving! Direction Dublin to take a plane for Lublin, Poland where the 1st show in almost 4 years will take place next Friday.

This morning, June 1st, early start… as seen on The Cranberries Instagram

2016.06.01 dublin airport terminal1

In the afternoon, Arena Lublin posted on their Facebook a lot of photos of the arrival of the guys with also Mikey Freedom Hart, Johanna Wiseley and some of their crew members at Lublin Airport. Yes they all flew with Ryan Air!!

Dolores wasn’t travelling with the boys but later on the evening Olé Koretsky revealed on his Instagram that he was in Warszawa (Teatr Narodowy). No doubt Dolores is somewhere around even if not appearing on the photo. We can definitely say The Cranberries have all arrived in Poland.

And last for the day, Johanna posted on her Instagram a photo of the 3 boys when in Lublin Old Town.

2016.06.01 LublinOldTownMore pictures of their stay in Poland will probably appear tomorrow, possibly medias and/or soundcheck to do (?) so this post will be updated as soon as possible. Please check back later.

Lubelska TV posted a short video of the guys arriving at the airport yesterday.

“Science Agrees” full album preview on Shazam

May 24, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

Shazam is definitely one of THE new way to preview a new album. 6 songs of D.A.R.K.’s debut album ‘Science Agrees” already appeared on the app these last weeks:
Four samples of 30 seconds of “Gunfight, Steal You Away, High Fashion, The Moon” were made available as well as two full songs officially released “Curvy” and “Loosen The Noose”.

If you wanna listen to the other 4 samples that are not officially online yet, you can force them to appear. Simply change the number of the song in the address bar of your internet browser and let the magic happen, all songs appear!!

TRACK#1 – CURVY

TRACK#2: CHYNAMITE

Again this trick might not work for everyone worldwide but no doubt some people will capture all the new 30 seconds samples and upload them somewhere, like Soundcloud for example.
Post will be updated as soon as we have links.
