2-Sided “Beneath the Skin” DVD?

December 16, 2000  |  Comments Off on 2-Sided “Beneath the Skin” DVD?  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Apparently, the idea of a DVD playable on a CD player is not as impossible as it seems. Several other bands have done the same thing. How? By manufacturing a double-sided DVD, one side with audio data for CD players, the other with DVD data for DVD players. If what Mike said in the E-Merge chat is true, then this is probably what the band is planning. Now, fans without a DVD player may feel compelled to buy both the VHS and DVD version — VHS for watching, DVD for listening.

Once again, “Beneath the Skin: Live in Paris” is due out in America on January 2nd.

If you live in Italy, or receive MTV Italy, mark your calenders and set your VCRs for Wednesday, the 20th at 9 P.M. The station will be re-airing the special “Simply the Best — A Night with the Cranberries”. The show originally aired this past July, but a few missed it. The show features an interview with Dolores and Fergal, along with airing all of the band’s videos, except for the new “You and Me”.

No tour until 2002

December 6, 2000  |  Comments Off on No tour until 2002  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The Official Cranberries Homepage has updated their tour section with a new notice. Aside from the note that the band is currently working on a new album, due in Autumn 2001, they add that “a tour is not anticipated until early 2002”. This is a rather disappointing note, as the band began touring weeks before the release of their last album in order to promote it. Now, it appears that the band will either be doing promo work or else just resting. Hopefully, it’s the former as not doing any promo work for an album will slaughter its sales.

An Ireland Corner has gotten ahold of a recording of the Dublin show from Saturday and has been gracious enough to post some clips of the two new songs!
Here is the setlist from the show, as well as the new MP3 clips.

1. Time is Ticking Out (MP3, 59 sec, 232k)
2. Linger
3. In the Ghetto (Elvis Cover)
4. Ode to My Family
5. Shattered
6. Animal Instinct
7. Loud and Clear
8. I Can’t Be with You
9. Analyze (MP3, 31 sec, 124k)

Quality is not top-notch, as it appears to be taken from the webcast. However, no doubt a bootleg of the show will begin spreading quickly among traders. In the meantime, enjoy this first glimpse at the new album!

Although they decided not to make the webcast a universal privilage, E- Merge has posted some shots of the show, and even those take some serious searching of the site to find. Thanks to Norbert Brühn of Zombieguide Germany for finding them.
