November 13, 2019  |  4 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!!

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!!!

VIDEO: “Free To Decide” & “Sunday” live in Boston for Telethon

July 22, 2019  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A few days ago the MDA Telethon published on YouTube a very rare video of The Cranberries performing 2 songs in Boston, MA, USA for the Telethon 1996. It was broadcast on the US TV show “Jerry Lewis Stars Across America MDA Labor Day Telethon” on 2 September 1996. The video quality is perfect, upscaled in HD 1080p and respecting the original 4:3 format.

The Cranberries played 2 shows in Boston that year, on September 1st and 2nd, so without more information it is impossible to know the exact day of that performance, depending on the fact that it was live broadcast or prerecorded.
[EDIT – JULY 27th: The performance was recorded during the band’s first show on September 1st according to the TV report “On Music” broadcast in Spain on C+ in 1996 where Dolores (and the whole band) has the same outfit during the song “Forever Yellow Skies” (starts at 2:10). Thanks to Luis Hernández for the info.]

The “MDA Labor Day Telethon” was an annual telethon held on Labor Day, starting the night before and throughout.

AUDIO BOOTLEG: Bruxelles, Botanique, 20 October 1994

A rare Cranberries audio bootleg surfaced the internet yesterday. Recorded in Bruxelles (Belgium) at Botanique on 20 October 1994, it is available on the private torrent trackers dimeadozen.org, thanks to user ShadowsATT.

Here’s below the description on DimeADozen:

Botanique, Bruxelles – Belgium
20th October 1994

 

I received this audience 2nd generation audio, sourced from a MD master recording, many years ago in a tape trade.
The audio quality is average, more than average sometimes, but maybe, not good as a digital master source recording should be and this is probably due to a not proper transfer. It’s anyway still pleasantly listenable.
The concert recording is complete and there is no cuts or partial songs.
Ok, I hope this audio will be interesting for many fans of the band. Happy listening!
