“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…

CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost

December 16, 2019  |  Comments Off on CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Following many complaints regarding the expensive shipping costs for non-US residents of the CalenDolores 2020 available from Etsy (and where you couldn’t even combine shipping when ordering 2 copies or more) theHand made a second version of his calendar available from Lulu where shipping costs are more reasonable.

Pay attention, this is really a second version of the calendar and not the same as Etsy shipped from another seller. There are several differences such as format, materials and number of pages. The price of the calendar is a little more expensive compared to the Etsy version, but if you add shipping it makes a big difference (again for those living outside the US) and combining is possible!

COUPON CODE: ONESHIP (free or reduced shipping costs until December 19th)

NEW COUPON CODE: LULU15 (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd)
NEW COUPON CODE: ONEFIVE (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd – UK & Ireland only)

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?

There is another Dolores O’Riordan mural in Limerick city. These kind of things happen… 2 murals done in the same city more or less at the same moment.

While the mural by artist Aches is still in the making (stopped because of torrential rain these last days), Instagram user Bold Details (@bold_details) posted today a few photos of another Dolores mural recently completed for the pub “The Ark Tavern” located on Corbally Road, exact location on Google Street View.

Great tribute!

EDIT: The following comment was posted on Facebook by The Art Tavern, thanks to them for the details, “The Ark Tavern was relaunched on the 12th of Oct, the mural of the late Dolores O’Riordan was spray painted by local art student Cormac Dillon a week before the 12th as well as many other great musicians. They can all be seen on the walls of the events/function room in the The Ark Tavern.”
