“Something Else” to be reissued on vinyl this month (or later?)

November 13, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

It looks like the album “Something Else” will be reissued on black vinyl on the 22 November 2019. However it’s quite difficult to know the exact release date as many websites are not all saying the same. Some are announcing the 22 November 2019 as a pre-order or release date:

HHV (Germany): Pre-order, 22.11.2019
Vinyl Digital: Date of delivery, 22.11.2019
Bilbo (Belgium): Release date, 22 November 2019
Ginza (Sweden): Release date, 22.11.2019

When a few others are announcing the 29 May 2020:

Rough Trade (UK): Release date, 29/05/20
Saturn (Germany): Release date, 29.05.20
Amazon (Germany): Release date, 29 May 2020

There is even one eBay seller announcing the release for the 29 November 2019.

So who is right?

#ZombieToABillion – “Be one of the billion”

October 3, 2019  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Soon after the video premiere of “Zombie” (live at Astoria), The Cranberries posted on their socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) a 28sec video to officially launch the #ZombieToABillion campaign:

They also updated their Facebook and Twitter accounts with the new banner, “Be one of the billion #ZombieToABillion”

Some fans also noticed that The Cranberries had momentarily changed their Instagram name by the words “Zombie Billion” (below a screen shot of their Instagram Stories announcing the NNTA 25th Anniversary). The name of the account has since changed again, back to “The Cranberries”

For those who still don’t know what the #ZombieToABillion campaign is all about, just know that once the official “Zombie” music video reaches a billion views, a remastered 4K version will be released on YouTube. Still something like 42 Millions to go!!

When The Cranberries posted this message, the live chat had already started and Fergal had already introduced himself. Chat started more or less at 4:30pm (BST), 30 minutes before the HD video premiere:

After a few minutes Fergal posted about the boxset, “we are working on a boxed set of NNTA which will be out early next year”

…and if you still haven’t watched the Astoria HD video yet, go to YouTube now, quality is AWESOME!!!
