The Hogans great great grandfather

April 15, 2020  |  4 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Here’s an interesting discovery we wanted to share:
As some of our team members were browsing old Irish 90s papers, we found out in a 1993 Limerick Leader article that Noel & Mike happen to be the great great grandsons of Michael Hogan, a poet known as “The Bard Of Thomond” in the 1800s.

Some of you might already have heard about this as, in 1999, Noel & Mike helped to reissue the poems and songs of their ancestor, according to an Irish Times article.

But our discovery did not stop there! As we read more about The Bard Of Thomond, we realized that a life-size statue of the Hogan’s great great grandfather is actually to be found at King Johns Castle Plaza in Limerick, that is to say… right in front of Dolores’ mural painted in 2019 by Aches!

When the tribute to a Hogan family member meets the tribute to a O’Riordan family member… destiny!!!

RTÉ PLAYER: “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas”

January 18, 2020  |  Comments Off on RTÉ PLAYER: “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those living in Ireland exclusively, you still have 8 days on the RTÉ Player to watch the replay of “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas” that was broadcast on RTÉ 2 on Friday 27 December 2019.

The 26 min. documentary includes a part dedicated to the recording of the song “Angela’s Christmas” and there is even an interview with Olé Koretsky recorded after Dolores’s passing.

For those who are not in Ireland these days the link won’t work and will return an error message:

…so your only way to watch it is to grab the official “Angela’s Christmas” DVD released last November in the US where the documentary is part of the special features (DVD Bonus).

“Something Else” purple vinyl edition to be released soon (UPDATED 2x)

January 17, 2020  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Some more information about the “Something Else” vinyl that was supposed to be reissued on 22 November 2019 and which was delayed to 29 November 2019, then to 29 May 2020, then to further announcement.

For now information is still very confusing as some stores are announcing a new release date on the 31 of January 2020 (like Amazon USA) when some others are still announcing the double vinyl to be released in May. Even Amazon is not saying the same depending on your country!

More importantly, the new release would in fact be a purple vinyl edition! Some record stores already received their copies and put them on sale straight away (like spellboundrecords in New Zealand) and now the very first images have started to surface as you can see below:

So check directly with your record store(s) as no one is saying the same at the moment, whether it is about the release date, the color, or the price…


UPDATE – JANUARY 30

The vinyl is now in stores:

However it seems that a few people who ordered their copy in UK received an email to cancel and refund or choose another item. According to the email, the vinyl was just meant to be sold on The Cranberries own webstore, which is still not the case at this very moment. Weird!

Thanks to Dan for the info.


UPDATE – JANUARY 31

Like in UK, the release was cancelled in Germany.
Amazon US says it’s been delayed rather than cancelled but it’s not available at the moment and it was supposed to be shipped today.

For now New Zealand and France seem to be the only places it’s been released. Will the vinyl finally appear on the band’s webstore like the above email says?

This is definitely one of the most frustrating releases for fans. To be continued…

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?
