O’Riordan to collaborate with the Smiths’ Andy Rourke

April 27, 2014  |  Comments Off on O’Riordan to collaborate with the Smiths’ Andy Rourke  |  by Luc  |  Dolores O' Riordan, The Cranberries

In an interview on RTÉ 2fm on April 18, Dolores O’Riordan told Nicky Byrne that she is to collaborate with Andy Rourke (The Smiths, Morrissey).

“I have written a bunch of new stuff”, told O’Riordan.

She also told Byrne that she’ll go to Los Angeles to meet some casting agents as she is interested to get some cameos or small roles there. For O’Riordan, her experience on The Voice was to see if she liked doing some TV. And she did.

O’Riordan indicated there is no plan for a Cranberries reunion right now. “You know I just did a reunion tour a couple years ago, and then I did another album, Roses. It just started to be predictable again. It’s nice to move on, different shores, different expriences…”

O’Riordan and ex-Westlife member Byrne also remembered about their duet in 2001 at the Vatican Christmas Concert with “Little Drummer Boy”.

You can listen to the interview on our Interview page. Dolores interview starts around 1:36:00.

Noel Hogan heads back to studio

May 25, 2013  |  Comments Off on Noel Hogan heads back to studio  |  by Luc  |  Mono Band

Noel Hogan plans to enter recording studio for his Mono Band solo project next month.
The Cranberries’ guitarist posted a short message on his Facebook production page yesterday, saying that he is set to record some drum and bass for two tracks he did with vocalist Fin Chambers. One of the two titles was already revealed by Hogan in 2011 (“Waking Up All Over“), while it is the first time we hear about “Start & Scars”.

Noel Hogan has also been doing some production work for other acts for a few weeks. Senakah‘s “Human Relations” — for which Noel worked as a producer — was released last month.

As for The Cranberries, things have been quite quiet since their last shows in early December. The band has not express any plans for concerts or recording sessions in a near future.

Curtain Call made good profits in 2010-2011

April 14, 2013  |  6 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

A year before the release of their first album in 10 years, The Cranberries made good profits through their own company, Curtain Call Ltd.
According to the Irish Times, the band’s company recorded well-deserved profits of €71,973 in 2011 and €248,183 a year before, mainly with their Reunion Tour, while music sales continues to decline in the entertainment industry for a decade or so.

Each of the band’s four members has a 25 per cent stake in Curtain Call.

With the release of Roses in 2012, followed by short tours in Asia and North America and an extended one in Europe, 2012 must have been a good year for the band, financial-wise.

No Cranberries at Zacatecas

March 8, 2013  |  2 Comments  |  by Luc  |  Dolores O' Riordan, The Cranberries

Zacatecas Festival seemed to have announced their 2013 line up prematurely last month: there never was an agreement for a show between the Cranberries and the festival.

We can only assume that the rest of the rumors about Dolores are also unfounded.

Breaking News: Zacatecas festival cancels Cranberries gig [update]

March 4, 2013  |  5 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Zacatecas festival announced that The Cranberries will not attend their festival, according to DireccionesZac. The band had not confirmed its presence to this festival, nor decline it on their official website. Last week, the Zacatecas festival included The Cranberries on their official program.

Let’s hope that everything is alright with the band and that their silence is only due to some [well-deserve] time off, even though everyone misses them already.

Thanks to Cranberries Mexico for the news.

The Cranberries master tapes face destruction

February 28, 2013  |  4 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

Time is actually ticking out!! Legendary Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin has issued an appeal to musicians who have worked there to collect their master tapes – amongst them some of The Cranberries recordings – or else they’ll be destroyed.

“We’re appealing to any artists who’ve worked here using two-inch multitrack tapes to come in and reclaim them because we’re in the process of disposing of these tapes,” Ian Brady of Pulse told RTÉ Ten. Windmill is now owned by Pulse Recording College.
