The Cranberries

The Cranberries are an irish alternative rock band from Limerick, Ireland that formed in 1989 and rose to mainstream popularity in the early 90's. The band consists of Dolores O'Riordan (vocals, keyboards, guitars), Noel Hogan (guitars, vocals, also a member of mono band), Mike Hogan (bass, vocals), and Fergal Lawler (drums, percussion, also a member of The Low Network). The band went on hiatus in 2003, but they came back to tour in the summer of 2009. Combining the melodic jangle of post-Smiths indie-guitar pop with the lilting, trance-inducing sonic textures of late-'80s dream pop and adding a slight celtic tint, The Cranberries became one of the more successful groups to emerge from the pre-brit-pop U.K. indie scene of the early '90s. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, whose keening, powerful voice is the most distinctive element of the group's sound, the group initially made little impact in the United Kingdom. It wasn't until the lush ballad Linger became an American hit in 1993 that the band also achieved mass success in the U.K. Following the success of Linger, The Cranberries quickly became international stars, as both their 1993 debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, and its 1994 follow-up, No Need to Argue, sold millions of copies and produced a string of hit singles. By the time of their third album, 1996's To the Faithful Departed, the group had added distorted guitars to its sonic palette and attempted to make more socially significant music, which resulted in a downturn in the band's commercial fortunes. During the next few years, the band cancelled a large tour and rumours of a breakup were widespread. They released Bury The Hatchet to mixed reviews in 1999. In 2001, they released Wake Up And Smell The Coffee to rave reviews of "The magic is back." The album debuted at number 46 in the U.S. charts. In 2004, The Cranberries announced they were taking some time to pursue individual careers. They decided to put the next album on hold. After more than a dozen years of relentless touring and promotion, which had seen them clocking up album sales in excess of 43 million and playing to hundreds of thousands of fans around the globe, the band decided it was time for a break. In 2006, the song Linger appeared in the movie Click. In 2007, Dolores O'Riordan released her debut solo album named: "Are You Listening?". Photographs and additional information can b found at their official site, www.Cranberries.com. On August 25, 2009 in anticipation of the release of Dolores' second solo album, No Baggage, Dolores O'Riordan announced that the Cranberries will be reuniting for a North American tour to begin in mid-November 2009, to be followed by dates in Europe in early 2010. O'Riordan indicated that the band will be playing songs from her solo albums and a lot of The Cranberries classic hits as well as some new music written by the group together.
