Below the band’s official statement published on their website and socials:
A fan just sent us the picture below off a german magazine called “Petra” dated from 1999. Same photo session, almost the same pose. The session then can’t be from the year 2000 and was probably from early 1999.
Krzysztof Świstak, member of the Polish Facebook group “Forum The Cranberries”, found a very rare black and white photo of Dolores side by side with a Teddy bear in Limerick in the year 2000. The photo was taken by Olaf Heine and posted on the website akostra.livejournal.com
Who saw this pic before? A real gem for sure!
New video interview with The Cranberries published yesterday on German website dw.com
Entitled “The Cranberries’ comeback”, the video is about 2:30 min. long.
It’s a mix between 2 sources, one recorded on May 2, 2017 in Berlin during the first show of the European acoustic tour and the other one recorded during the band’s rehearsals in Limerick at ICO Studio possibly in March 2017. Both sources contain live footage and interview.
This is the translucent red version. There’s no image of the red vinyl itself, hopefully soon!
Concerning the sound inside, it is the same as the Analog Spark one. “turk99”, a user at the “Vinyl Collective” boards, contacted Analog Spark and they confirmed it’s based on their mastering.

As you may remember the album “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” is going to be reissued on vinyl. Two different pressings are expected: the Barnes & Noble translucent red and the Analog Spark 180 grams.
Both versions were a little delayed for unknown reason. 2 days ago, the first image of the Analog Spark version was posted on Instagram by encorerekkids. Here it is below.
No image yet of the Barnes & Noble red vinyl version but it should appear pretty soon…
“Love Letters from Limerick” is a short film (approximately 4 min. long) which was shown at the LIT presentation last Friday where the “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” giant sign was donated and unveiled. It showcases the creation of this inspiring project.
The film is now available on Vimeo and features a new track by Fergal Lawler simply called “Love Letters”
And as Tom Collins says about the sign: “I love where it is now, it’s on a great blue wall, it looks like a big cloud on a blue wall, it’s a happy cloud”
Everybody Else is Doing It So Why Can’t We?
Texas based sign painter and illustrator Sean Starr collaborated with Limerick sign painter Tom Collins to create a 10ft high 15ft wide hand painted sign placing the title of The Cranberries debut album centre stage on a large cloud. This video showcases the creation of the sign and its installation in a permanent home where it’s elevating message can inspire future generations. Featuring a new track by Fergal Lawler of The Cranberries.
Title almost says it all. Noel got a new tattoo. Today the tattooer Marco C. Matarese from PURO Tattoo Studio in Milano, Italy posted on his socials a picture of him with Noel and his new tattoo:
It was a great honor for me to tattoo Noel Hogan, the lead guitarist and founder of the rock band The Cranberries. Thank you for your trust!
For those who wanted to see the giant sign “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” in the streets of Limerick it’s too late! The sign has now moved and found a new home at the Limerick Institute of Technology also known as LIT.
Last Friday, June 16 at 4pm, there was a special presentation/ceremony with special guests Tom Collins (the local artist who created the sign) and a famous drummer named Fergal Lawler to unveil what has become the new sign on LIT’s campus.
