The Cranberries rehearsing “Linger” for “The Bachelorette” show

June 6, 2016  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries rehearsing “Linger” for “The Bachelorette” show  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Andrew Kimmel, producer of the TV Show “The Bachelorette”, published a real gem 5 months ago on YouTube, a video of The Cranberries minus Mike and Fergal rehearsing “Linger” with a string quartet at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin recorded in June 2015 April 2015 for the Season 9 of the American TV Show “The Bachelorette”.

This is a different version as the one aired on TV (again, this is taken from the rehearsals) but it’s very similar and this time it’s a full version. You might remember the episode with The Cranberries didn’t air the whole song (only 2 minutes) and there were dialogues on it; have a look at the news from last year.

This new video is only one camera, one angle and there is extra time before and after the song. And available in HD 1080p. Thank You Mister Producer!

The Cranberries live in concert at Arena Lublin, first photos/videos

June 3, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The very first show of The Cranberries in a long time started a few minutes ago.
Unfortunately the live streaming announced yesterday was a fake. (All YouTube and Prostreamy links). Even The band officially announced the event on their Facebook and got fooled. Incredible how many scammers there are for this show!

Anyway the only way to follow the concert if you are not in Lublin tonight is social medias like Instagram, Twitter or Periscope. Here below the first photos taken by people at the Arena today. Authors will be credited a little later. More photos and information will come as the evening progresses…

Lublin to be broadcast live tomorrow + Meet and Greet contest (3UPDATES)

June 2, 2016  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

More surprises to come from Poland.
It seems the Lublin show will be broadcast live on YouTube as well as one other stuff.
Indeed 2 feeds are available on YouTube right now. They are displaying different timing.

The first one is clearly tomorrow’s show. It is perfectly announced as a live stream and time matches the usual schedule for a concert starting around 8:00 PM local time. The other one is more mysterious as the broadcast will begin in the morning. What is it exactly and where is it (the word “? No more information for now. Maybe fans understanding Polish might help. A possible a press conference, or soundcheck?? Clearly another surprise to come.
Die-hard fans!!!
It’s time to check if your streaming recorder is perfectly working and ready for tomorrow!!

On the other hand Arena Lublin launched a meet & greet contest on their Facebook.
15 Polish fans will have the chance to meet Mike, Noel and Fergal before the show tomorrow. Dolores is not officially announced but there is a good chance she will join.

And last, earlier today, the band unveiled on social medias the new backdrop for the Summer Tour: it will be the classic “The Cranberries” logo.
Looking great isn’t it?

2016.06.02 new backdrop22016.06.02 new backdrop1


UPDATE  – June 3 – 9:10 AM (UTC)
The unknown “morning” streaming have been delayed. it was supposed to start more than 1 hour ago. New schedule is NOON local time, (10:00 AM UTC). Starts in 50 minutes then… Still no information on what it could stream… surprise!


UPDATE  – June 3 – 10:20 AM (UTC)
BEWARE
Bad surprise!
One of our readers Kamil Urczyński reported on our Facebook that YouTube link was FAKE.

Here’s what Kamil says: “Link to youtube is fake, it will charge a fee for the sent sms to encourage subscriptions and paid surveys. Only true livestream is Prostreamy.pl”

Tomek, in the comments below, also posted about Prostreamy.pl

If any Polish fans can confirm, it would help a lot.
Indeed when you go to YouTube now, the streaming was supposed to start 20 minutes ago and nothing appears except a weird link below the video opening a new window where you are asked to enter a phone number. It seems Kamil says the truth, so watch out and report to YouTube if you can.

What’s for sure is that Lublin show will be broadcast live on the internet tonight. This was confirmed by The Cranberries this morning on their Facebook, but the band posted the same link as us. Even if both YouTube accounts are 2 different users the look is very close and the band might have been fooled as well. Let’s hope they’ll be able to confirm the correct link asap if YouTube link(s) really is/are fake.


UPDATE  – June 3 – 1:30 PM (UTC)
One of the fake YouTube account has been suspended!
The other, the one from the “morning” is still running so be careful.

BOTH ARE FAKE

We don’t know yet if there is a true live stream tonight.

The Cranberries are in Poland

June 1, 2016  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday, 31 May 2016, the 3 lads were back on tour as seen on The Cranberries Instagram. Nice photo taken in a car with Noel driving! On the way to Dublin to take a plane for Lublin, Poland where the 1st show in almost 4 years will take place next Friday.

This morning, 1 June 2016, early start… as seen on The Cranberries Instagram

In the afternoon, Arena Lublin posted on the Facebook Events page of the show, a lot of photos of the arrival of the guys with also Mikey Freedom Hart, Johanna Wiseley and some of their crew members at Lublin Airport. Yes they all flew with Ryan Air!!

Dolores wasn’t travelling with the boys but later on the evening Olé Koretsky revealed on Instagram that he was in Warszawa (Teatr Narodowy). No doubt Dolores is somewhere around even if not appearing on the photo. We can definitely say The Cranberries have all arrived in Poland.

And last for the day, Johanna posted on Instagram a photo of the 3 boys when in Lublin Old Town.

More pictures of their stay in Poland will probably appear tomorrow, possibly media and/or soundcheck to do (?) so this post will be updated as soon as possible. Please check back later.


UPDATE – JUNE 2 – 2:10 PM (UTC)

Lubelska TV posted a short video of the guys arriving at the airport yesterday.

Thanks to Andrzej for the link!

The Cranberries European Summer Tour 2016 is about to start!

May 29, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

There a now five days left until the first concert of The Cranberries European Tour 2016 which will take place at the Arena Lublin, in Poland.

Walking through the streets of Lublin, Polish fans will probably notice that the Lublin Arena is doing last minute street marketing to promote the concert these days, as you can see on the below pics:

13305057_1722787741309411_2156671639295396397_o 13316858_1722787837976068_2922001720240505481_o 13320754_1722787754642743_1322898412140100088_o

On the band’s part, Noel posted two new rehearsals pics, mentioning these were the last days of rehearsals, along with a brand new poster of the tour and a pic of crew members’ tour books.

13244826_10153693212237106_6209640322438719516_n

Last, the Limerick Leader posted a cool article about the band’s comeback along with a small interview from Ken Coleman, the Irish digital media artist who took the recent photographs and video of the band posted on The Cranberries official social media accounts.

Ken explained:

They are all in different places at different times, so we had a very small window of opportunity to get it done on a Sunday evening.

We knocked it out in about an hour and a half; green screen, live video, and the stills from that last practice before they packed up.

I got a couple of shots of them and the video and you can see at the very end that they are having a good chat, they were laughing and joking amongst themselves.

What is exciting is the international reaction – the video had 300,000 hits in a day, the Instagram had 48,000 likes.

You guys better be ready for memorable tour!!!

Who’s going to see the band? 😉

The Cranberries back in rehearsals, invite fans to join them and shed a light on D.A.R.K.’s tour postponement

May 15, 2016  |  6 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

The band is back to the Limerick Chamber Orchestra studio this week so as to rehearse once more for the summer shows that will take place in Europe and Mexico.

This time, Dolores is rehearsing with the boys, Johanna and Mikey, as seen on the pictures Noel posted on the band’s Instagram account:

These rehearsals are taking place as Dolores should have been starting touring Europe with her side project D.A.R.K.
A great opportunity for fans who were to fly to Limerick to attend D.A.R.K.’s first concert ever as a few of them were lucky enough to be invited by Dolores herself to attend The Cranberries rehearsals twice!

Picture of the girls Noel posted on the band’s official Instagram account!

Congrats to Litsa (Greece), Voula (Greece) and Dolores (Croatia) who probably had the time of their life, enjoying a “private” concert, being offered setlists and taking pics with the band!

The girls used the occasion to question Dolores about D.A.R.K.’s tour postponement and learned that it was due to visa issues for their guitarist, which explains why fans got to learn about the rescheduled dates pretty late. The band is grateful, however, that fans are quite tolerant and not blaming them for this postponement.

“God Be With You” on the charity album to fight homelessness

May 11, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

The tracklisting of the charity album to fight homelessness featuring Dolores O’Riordan among other Irish artists is now known. The website Lovin Dublin just published the full list and it will be the song “God Be With You” concerning Dolores. The album is called “Rising Against Homelessness” and goes on sale this week in Irish record stores, Starbucks outlets and will also be available to download from iTunes.
Price €10.

2016.10.11 rising against homelessness

TRACKLIST:

1. ‘The Patriot Game’ by Munday and friends

2. ‘The Foggy Dew’ by The Chieftains with Sinead O’Connor

3. ‘God Be With You ‘ by Dolores O’Riordan 

4. ‘Wild Mountain Time’ by The Waterboys

5. ‘The Town I Loved So Well’ by Camille O’Sullivan

6. ‘The Auld Triangle’ by HomeTown

7. ‘The Night Visiting Song’ by August Wells

8. ‘Children of ’16’ by Declan O’Rourke

9. ‘Villains Remix’ by The Saw Doctors with Giles Packham

10. ‘Hairy Jaysus’ by Kila with Giles Packham

11. ‘Down By The Sally Gardens’ by Heathers

12. ‘Romantic Ireland Is Dead and Gone’ by The Walls

13. ‘The Galtee Mountain Bay’ by Pauline Scanlon.

14. ‘A Song for Ireland’ by Stephen Robinson

15. ‘Foggy Dew 2016’ by Lethal Dialect

16. ‘Amhrán na bhFiann’ by Meltybrains?

As you probably all know, “God Be With You” already appears on the remastered version of the album “To The Faithful Departed”. Dolores being credited on this new charity album and not “The Cranberries” it is quite unclear for now whether the song is a new version or the old Cranberries version.

Sources: Lovin Dublin, Irish Mirror


Edit: “God Be With You” was originally recorded and released as a Dolores solo track for “The Devil’s Own” soundtrack, so there’s a good chance that this is still the same old version on this charity CD.
Thanks Richard!!

D.A.R.K.’s tour dates POSTPONED!

May 1, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

If you’ve been following the D.A.R.K. news lately, you probably already know that “Science Agrees” release is to be postponed to August 19th, 2016.

As an obvious consequence, rumor grew that next announcement would concern a possible postponement of the band European tour that was due to take place from May 13th to May 26th.

darkgigspostponed

This rumor was just officially confirmed a moment ago as D.A.R.K. published the below message on their Facebook account :

To all our fans we are so sorry to announce that we have to postpone our forthcoming tour until September due to the last minute unavailability of our lead guitarist and the deferral of the release of our debut album until late August. All tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled shows in September details of which will be announced after the weekend. For those of you who cannot make it to our rescheduled shows full refunds will be given. We sincerely regret this and hope to see you at our shows in September.

The rescheduled dates are not known at the moment but should be in a couple of days.

Quite a disappointing news for fans – especially those who had booked flights, hotels and tickets to be among the firsts to discover Dolores O’Riordan’s new project – but somehow unsurprising.

We will keep you updated on this postponement as soon as we get some more news.

BREAKING: The Cranberries recording SOMETHING at the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio?!

April 29, 2016  |  5 Comments  |  by Jury  |  The Cranberries

Last few days Noel has been posting new photos on The Cranberries’ new Instagram page. These photos feature Noel, Mike and Ferg in some large spaces with lots of musical instruments, headphones and microphones… as if the boys were recording something! Another photo shows a music sheet of Zombie. Some fans were speculating that these photos were part of a recording session.

And today we have another clue! A new photo on The Cranberries’ Instagram has a geotagging saying that it was taken at the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio in Limerick! And Noel added the words: “One last take….” on his Twitter page.

As some fans may remember, on February 24th, Dolores told in the interview after the court sentencing that she’s about to release two records, one with D.A.R.K. and the other with… The Chamber Orchestra!

According to the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio website, its “state-of-the-art space has been acoustically modelled to share the properties of the world’s finest concert halls” and it provides “rehearsal and recording facilities for the orchestra.”

So it seems like the pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fall into place: The Cranberries are indeed recording (or rehearsing?) something at the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio, and so far it looks like something acoustic (lots of acoustic guitars and Fergal’s famous Empty drums on photos). So what is it? An acoustic best of album with orchestrated arrangements? Or just a rehearsal at fancy studio… but why so many microphones? Time will tell!

Anyway, these are very exciting news for The Cranberries fans, and we can’t wait to hear what are you thinking about this in our comments section!

“Sciences Agrees” release postponed?!

April 29, 2016  |  6 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Worrying news for fans as rumor has been circulating for a few days that D.A.R.K. debut album release could be postponed to a later date this year…

Cranberries World team had decided not to comment on this as there was no official sign that this would happen.

However, this morning, Amazon UK changed the release date to August 19, 2016 as you can see yourself on this page.

We’ll keep you updated on this unexpected and major postponement as soon as we’ll get more news during the upcoming hours/days, keep on checking our website!

Fans who pre-ordered the album will most probably receive an email from Pledge Music in the following hours/days to let them know when they can expect their album to be delivered, closer to August.

Thanks to Dan Steward who brought our attention to this fact.

EDIT [10:30am GMT]

Confirmed on iTunes.com (and iTunes France) as well for August 19th!!
Thanks to Arnaud for letting us know.

EDIT [11:37am GMT]
September 23 on Amazon Canada, Thanks Andrea!

Mikey Freedom Hart (Ex_Reyes) to join The Cranberries on tour (UPDATED)

April 18, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Our friends at Cranberries Mexico noticed today that Johanna Wiseley (White Prism) who, as we know, have been touring with The Cranberries as backing vocals/keyboard player since 2012, posted a new picture of the rehearsals for The Cranberries summer 2016 tour featuring multi-instrumentalist Mikey Freedom Hart Ex Reyes

In the caption, Johanna mentions she’s happy that Ex Reyes (Mikey) is now “on board”.

Ex-Reyes-The-Cranberries-rehearsals
This comes as a confirmation that, as fans could easily imagine, Russell Burton will not tour with the band as the additional guitarist/keyboard player on the 2016 tour.

It’s now up to European fans to warmly welcome Ex Reyes who, here, succeeds Russell Burton (Roses Tour) and Denny DeMarchi (Reunion Tour) on stage.


UPDATE APR.19 – 7:00 PM (UTC)

Noel Hogan posted 3 new pictures on Tumblr with Johanna and the new guy Mikey now rehearsing with the band.

Dear valued customer,

Thank you for your recent purchase of our new 7 inch single products.
Unfortunately, although we have started, and made good progress with the manufacture of these titles, our original supplier has informed us that they are unable to complete the manufacturing due to an increase in their costs of production.
This has been very frustrating for us and has sadly meant that the additional cost of production would result in us having to increase the retail price of the products which is not a cost we are willing to place on our customers.
We therefore feel that the best course of action at this time is to refund you on your purchase, and offer you a discount voucher for your next purchase with us as although this issue has been out of our hands, its not fair on you, our customers, that this issue causes either further delays, or cost.
Please find here your discount code. This code gives you 25% off any purchase over £10 made through the Concert Live website and is active as of now.
All refunds are being processed today and will be credited back on to the card you used to purchase. Please note depending upon the bank funds may take up to 5 days to appear in your account.
If you have any other questions please contact us at support@concertlive.co.uk.
Thank you for your continued support and our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

“No Need To Argue” CRANBERRY COLOR VINYL to be released on Sept.16

April 14, 2016  |  9 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Fun news today coming from Runt. The album No Need To Argue will be reissued again on September 16, 2016 in a cranberry vinyl version. Very collector!! 🙂
Like the other reissues last year (No Need To Argue and Bury The Hatchet on 180g vinyls) this LP will be released on Plain Label and can be pre-ordered online right now for $29.98 at Runt

No Need To Argue

Mexico confirmed + The Cranberries rehearsal setlist (SPOIL!!!!!)

April 12, 2016  |  8 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Two major news at the same time given by The Cranberries today.
The 1st one concerns the shows in Cancún which are now officially confirmed by the band on Facebook.
As mentioned yesterday the two shows will take place at Moon Palace Arena on August 26 & 27, 2016.
Fans will be now able to buy their tickets confidently as the band will definitely come and play in Mexico.
Tickets go on sale May 23rd.

This is a great news for South America as we can easily imagine these two shows won’t be the only ones on the continent. It would be very costly for the band to travel and play a one-off in one city…

SETLIST WARNING: STOP READING THERE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED.

Second news concerns the setlist rehearsed these days by the band and revealed by Noel Hogan on Twitter earlier today.

Last week The Cranberries gathered in a studio to rehearse a few songs and on the 2nd rehearsal day, Noel posted some nice pictures where we can see the boys and some of their gears.
On one photo we could read what was probably a very first version of a setlist as seen in this news.
A few fans noticed that the list was very similar to that of the Roses Tour 2012!
Today for the second week of rehearsal, the band seems to be rehearsing more songs.
Take a look at the new list below:

2016.04.12 rehearsal setlist

Quite a nice surprise as this song list features a lot more rarities with a few ones not played live in a very long time such as Hollywood, Wake Up And Smell The Coffee or This Is The Day. Please note this is just a list of everything they’re trying in no particular order and some of these songs might not be included in the final set. Some more might be added as well. Definitely exciting!
What do you think?

D.A.R.K.’s new song “Loosen The Noose” available now (2 UPDATES)

April 7, 2016  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

D.A.R.K.’s new song “Loosen The Noose” will be released tomorrow April 8th.
It’s still April 7th right now for half of the world but if you live in a country where April 8th is already there like Russia, Japan, Australia and else the YouTube video link below is already working.
If not midnight for you there’s nothing we can do 🙁  just be patient or try to change your computer clock (not working for everyone!)

Like on “Curvy” Dolores and Olé are both singing on this one.
A cool nice song with very sweet Dolores vocals.


UPDATE 8:25 PM (UTC)

Cranberries World team’s attempt at writing the lyrics can be found on the “Loosen The Noose” page.
If you think there is a mistake please let us know.
You can find more lyrics in the Song List A-Z section.


UPDATE 10:01 PM (UTC)

It’s now midnight all over Europe (except Portugal, UK and Ireland) and the song is also available on Spotify:

More details about the Cancún shows

April 7, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Still not officially confirmed by The Cranberries yet, the 2 concerts at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancún, Mexico next August 26 & 27 have a dedicated Facebook page in English. We can learn tickets will go on sale on May 23, 2016 and their prices range from $129-$249 from the Gold to the VIP section.
Yes this is US Dollars. Quite expensive compared to the European shows but it seems attendees will enjoy a pre-concert dinner at 7:00 PM. Will there be tickets without dinner? Things are quite unclear for now.

2016.04.07 cranberries moon palace FB
Even if the information seems more serious this time than another Mexican concert in the past, let’s hope The Cranberries will confirm these shows before May 23 otherwise fans will have to take a big risk on their own!

The Cranberries in Mexico & The Cranberries rehearsal days

April 6, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Breaking news for Mexico today as The Cranberries are announced to play 2 concerts in Cancún on August 26th & 27th. The information is not officially confirmed by the band yet but was announced last March 24th on the internet by Quintana Roo Hoy.
If confirmed it would automatically mean more South American concerts to be announced soon (and why not a few concerts in North America as well). The last time the band played Mexico -and mostly South America- was in 2010 during the Reunion Tour. The Cranberries have some of their biggest fans there and the band is expected like no other band is. Even more since the last tour for the album Roses in 2012 didn’t stop on the South American continent at all!

2016.08.26 27 moon palace ad

Other news, yesterday was rehearsal day 1 for The Cranberries but no information were revealed. Even the very opposite, we had a few more pictures of Dolores with her side project D.A.R.K. doing interviews and photo shooting for a media called The Talkhouse.

2016.04.05 dark reybee instagram 2016.04.05 dark and jen maler 2016.04.02 talkhouse 3
2016.04.02 talkhouse 4
These pictures are difficult to date and even if recent (probably taken just a couple of days ago) they don’t mean Dolores wasn’t rehearsing with The Cranberries yesterday or don’t mean she was! What’s for sure is things are moving fast now and it really seems both projects are carried out in parallel by Dolores.

2016.04.06 rehearsals day 2 pic1

And now today is The Cranberries rehearsal day 2. Noel just shared on his Tumblr account some photos where we can see the instruments and gears ready. We can also see Mike and Fergal & 2 familiar tech guys. Noel is not on the pictures as he probably is the one taking them. No sign of Dolores for now and she possibly hasn’t arrived yet which is not really a surprise as the very first rehearsal days might be instrumental only.

On one picture we can even read some part of the setlist (yes it is readable if you are an expert in Cranberries songs) but no spoiling here, read it if you like or keep the surprise, your choice!

Anyway good things are coming for sure…
Noel also posted a short mobile phone video on his Twitter:

Dolores to take part in a charity project against homelessness

April 3, 2016  |  Comments Off on Dolores to take part in a charity project against homelessness  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

An article published today on the Independent reveals that Dolores O’Riordan will be involved in a project called “Rock Against Homelessness” which is part of the “One For Ireland” campaign. This event is to alert on the overall number of homeless people in Ireland seriously increasing these last months and to raise €1M to fight youth homelessness throughout April.

2016.04.24 concert ad

A concert will take place at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on April 24 and a charity CD will be released in 3 weeks. Dolores is not on the list of the artists performing at the concert (or is she the very special guest?) but is to feature on the CD among other artists such as The Waterboys, Sinead O’Connor, The Chieftains, The Saw Doctors, Tommy Fleming, Camille O’Sullivan, Mundy and Hometown.

Thanks to A.P. for the tip!

Photos of “The Ultimate Live Collection Vol. 2” box set

March 30, 2016  |  Comments Off on Photos of “The Ultimate Live Collection Vol. 2” box set  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The box sets of The Ultimate Live Collection Volume 2 have just been shipped by Concert Live for once perfectly on time. Some fans already received their box and here below are the first photos:

TULCV2a

First thing you immediately notice is its size. It is almost half of the Volume 1 box which was way too large if you remember (see CW photo-review of the Volume 1 by clicking here).

TULCV2b

Size of the Volume 1: 29 x 23 x 12cm
Size of the Volume 2: 21 x 17 x 9cm

This time the 4 CD’s inside fit better!

TULCV2c

TULCV2d

This is the exact same red/cranberries color 🙂 as the Volume 1.
It is interesting to note that for an unknown reason some fans received a white version of the Volume 1 which is quite weird and very collector!
Here’s the white box (on the left) received by Cranberries Mexico among a lot of other goodies ordered:

TULC white version

Will there be a white version of the Volume 2?
Time will tell…

The content of this new box is exactly as announced by Concert Live:
2 live albums recorded on the 2010 Reunion Tour and 2 live albums recorded on the Roses Tour.

  • Live at Mediolanum Forum, Milano – 16.mar.2010
  • Live at Zénith, Paris – 22.mar.2010
  • Live at Hammersmith Apollo, London – 02.oct.2012 
  • Live at Zénith, Caen – 10.nov.2012 

TULCV2e

TULCV2f

TULCV2g

The box is still available on the Concert Live website for £25 plus shipping.
Limited edition: 100 copies

Let’s note tickets for Berlin are on sale already, whereas Madrid concert is to go on sale on April 1st.
Many thanks to Dolores O’Riordan Spain for noticing!

PHOTO: Dolores and King Jermajesty on “The Bachelorette” show

March 25, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Last week, King Jermajesty posted on Instagram an awesome photo with Dolores taken last year during the recording of the TV show “The Bachelorette”.

King Jermajesty also wrote a few words a bit confusing for the fans and some of them immediately thought the photo was taken on St Patrick’s Day last week. In fact the photo was posted on St Patrick’s Day last week, a day which probably reminded him his photo with Dolores when he was working on The Bachelorette show in Ireland last year!

Launch of D.A.R.K. official website

March 23, 2016  |  Comments Off on Launch of D.A.R.K. official website  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

D.A.R.K. official website is now online!

2016.03.23 website launch

This way, the band thus confirmed the 5 European shows in May previously announced this morning, which our team was able to find mostly via ticket sales companies.

The website also features a brand new complete biography of the band as well as an online shop on which fans can order signed versions of Science Agrees CD and LP & a signed screen print!!!

Let’s note that it seems only Dolores and Andy Rourke signed/will sign this last item. Suprisingly, Olé Koretsky is not mentioned, which is a bit of a pity as he’s one of the original Jetlag NYC band members… or is it a mistake from the website?

2016.03.23 bio off

Thanks to Richard for noticing as well.

D.A.R.K. first ever performances with Dolores announced!

A fan who lives in Dublin found out this morning on Ticketmaster.ie – an official ticket sales company – that D.A.R.K. will be performing on Monday May 16, 2016 at Whelan’s in Dublin!

DARK


UPDATE AT 11:30 AM (CET)
Second date added in Paris at Divan du Monde on Friday May 20th as per French promoter website

dark_admat_20x30


UPDATE AT 1:00 PM (CET)
Two other dates have just been added on Ticketmaster.co.uk
Bush Hall, London – Wednesday May 18th
Dolans Warehouse, Limerick – Friday May 13th


UPDATE AT 1:10 PM (CET)
Italy added!!!
Tunnel Club, Milano – Monday May 23rd

Dublin tickets to go on sale tomorrow morning on March 24th at 9:00 AM (GMT).
As far as Paris tickets are concerned, pre-sale tomorrow at 9:00 AM (GMT), general on sale should take place later.

These performances are the first ever concerts of D.A.R.K. announced since Dolores O’Riordan has joined the band. All these venues’ capacity is less than 500 people, which sounds quite exciting.

We believe some more shows should be announced in Europe around these ones today or during the week.

Many thanks to Johann Rosales who first shared the info for Dublin show.

First thing fans will notice is that both Olé Koretsky and Dolores seem to be singing on the track. We don’t know yet if that’s the case on all tracks of the album.

So… what do you guys think about it 🙂 ? Good one, yeah?


UPDATE 3:30 PM (UTC)

Please let us know if you think we got some words wrong.

The Cranberries to appear in “Rock Band 4” videogame (UPDATED MAR.18)

March 1, 2016  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The song title(s) is (are) not yet known but The Cranberries are on the list of the artists appearing in the videogame “Rock Band 4” for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo and others.

Rock Band 4 cover

For those who have no idea what this game is all about, it allows up to four players to simulate the performance of popular rock songs by playing with controllers modeled after musical instruments. Players can play the lead guitar, bass guitar and drums parts to songs with instrument controllers as well as sing through a USB microphone.

Here is the list of the artists being part of the next March DLC(*) as announced by developer Harmonix:

  • 5 Seconds of Summer
  • Carrie Underwood
  • The Cranberries
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Luke Bryan
  • Neon Trees
  • One Direction
  • Sam Hunt

If there is only one song of The Cranberries in Rock Band 4 it will surely be “Zombie”.
If more than one so guess the songs… Any idea?

According to Bastián a longtime gamer and Cranberries fan (see his message below) the band already appeared in the video games “Rockband Blitz” (Linger) and “Singstar” (Linger, Zombie, Stars).
“Zombie” might be in “Rocksmith” as well.

(*) DLC is a sort of downloadable update, a not-free update, you have to pay more money to play those artists as they are not part of the main collection (Rock Band 4 was released in October 2015).

Source: VG 24/7


UPDATE MAR.14

Finally it is 3 new tracks from The Cranberries available tomorrow:
Dreams
Ode To My Family
Zombie
The tracklist was just announced today on the Facebook page of Rock Band 4.
So it makes a total of 4 Cranberries songs as Linger was already available as DLC before.

2016.03.14 Rock Band 4 TC


UPDATE MAR.15

OUT NOW, HERE IS THE PROMO VIDEO


UPDATE MAR.18

“DREAMS”

“ODE TO MY FAMILY”

“ZOMBIE”

One more date in France on The Cranberries summer tour

February 25, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries have just been announced to play La Foire aux Vins d’Alsace on August 12, 2016.
This festival is located in the East of France in the city of Colmar (very close to Germany).

2016.02.25 TC Colmar 1

The band already played there in August 2010 sharing the bill with a band named Gotan Project. It was the last show in Europe in 2010 and there was a big power failure during The Cranberries set. Fans still remember this particular show as the band had to skip a lot of songs to end the show on time when the power returned. Let’s hope this time fate will be better !

Tickets go on sale on March 4th at 9:00 AM (UTC) on the website of the festival.

BREAKING: A couple of albums coming out!!! (2 UPDATES)

February 24, 2016  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

An online article of the Independent.ie reports a few words Dolores said outside court after the sentencing:

 I don’t really have much to say. I’m glad it’s over and I want to thank the doctors who helped me to get back my health mentally.

 

I’m feeling very good today, very positive about this upcoming year. I have a couple of albums coming out and I’m going to go back to work.

UPDATE 4:50 PM (GMT)

Sara from CranberriesItalia (yes still her, you should work for CW Sara!) is watching the Irish TV RTE1 and reports the following: “They’re after talking about it on rte1. She briefly spoke to the reporter and said she’s about to release 2 records, one with the Chamber Orchestra and another with a project called Dark.”
QUITE UNEXPECTED !!

Rectification: Sara heard it on RTE1 Radio, not TV.

The Facebook page of JetlagNYC just changed its name into DARK.
This explains the comment of Sara and it’s now obvious that the 1st of the 2 records Dolores is talking about will be the one with JetlagNYC… I mean DARK. The second will be something unexpected with the Chamber Orchestra. She already played with them on the New Year’s Eve concert in Limerick (2013).
So what about The Cranberries album? Mystery…

Bury The Hatchet double LIVE album at Concert Live??

February 19, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The website Concert Live just published a new page where you can pre-order “Bury The Hatchet double live album”. Release date is March 18th.

2016.02.19 concertlive BTHLIVE

This probably is a mistake from Concert Live. Those guys often make mistakes, it is not the first time and it probably won’t be the last. For example see this past news where they announced unreleased recordings when it was not!

This 2LP version of Bury The Hatchet must probably be the recent Deluxe Edition 180 grams released last January in USA exclusively which would be now available for the first time in Europe. Otherwise if it really is a LIVE version of BTH this record would be completely unreleased & new.
Probability: 1% (or should I say 0% !!)

UPDATE FEB.20

The word “live” was removed today! No more details if it is the 180 grams edition, but it sure is.

New album coming soon… or not !

February 9, 2016  |  8 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday the open-air festival Festi’Neuch in Neuchâtel Switzerland announced their 2016 line up featuring The Cranberries and the page dedicated to the band was mentioning a new album this year:

Ils reviennent au centre de l’actualité avec un nouvel album prévu pour cette année et cela ne peut que réserver de bonnes surprises !

 

Translation: They’re back in the spotlight with a new album to be released this year, good news in store !

Today this text was removed which possibly means it was a mistake… or THE big news revealed too early ! Below the new page in French (as Neuchâtel is located on the French speaking side of Switzerland)

2016.02.09 TC new text

If anyone captured the original text yesterday please send us a copy. Thanks.


UPDATE

Here comes the original text from yesterday. Thanks to Richard & Maïwenn
