It'll be on the first anniversary of Dolores O'Riordan's death, their leader and voice. It will also be the preview of their last album as a group "IN THE END", whose sleeve appears on this post and with the songs that Dolores recorded just before she died. We include the complete text of the group's official press release.
A message from the band about their new album 'In the End'
In early 2017, the four of us got together to rehearse for the ‘Something Else’ Tour. During rehearsals, we discussed many times how great it would be to write and work on new material for a new album… The prospect of writing and working on new material for a new album was very exciting.
Over the following months the task of working on what would become ‘In The End’ began. By December 2017, Dolores had completed and recorded the vocals to final demo stage on the eleven songs which feature on this recording, and we had planned to go into the studio to complete the album in early 2018.
After Dolores' devastating and unexpected passing in January 2018, we took some time out and put all plans on hold. As time passed, we began to think about how we might best honour our close friend and bandmate. This was a very painful process. We remembered how Dolores had been so energised by the prospect of making this record and getting back out on the road to play the songs live, and realised that the most meaningful thing to do was to finish the album we had started with her. We felt that this is what she would want. We spoke with Dolores' family and they agreed.
It was a very emotional process for us. Knowing that we would never get to play these songs live made it even more difficult. There was also an overwhelming sense of finality knowing that this was the last time that we would be in the same studio together working on a Cranberries album.
We would like to take the chance to thank ours and Dolores’ family and friends and all those who worked with the band over the years. To our fans, who have stood by us for almost thirty years; thank you, without you, none of this would have been possible. It has been an incredible journey.
We dedicate this album to our dear friend and bandmate Dolores. She will always be with us in her music.
