07.23.2003 » Dolores Speaks about "Solo Album"  
[03:29 PM est] » Despite official denials earlier this year, Hot Press is continuing to state that Dolores O'Riordan's solo album is due for release next year. And better yet, the magazine has a brand new, exclusive interview with Dolores about her current solo material -- its "very experimental and out there," she states -- as well as that of The Cranberries.

[12:00 AM est] » Dolores tells LA7 that The Cranberries are intent on making their sixth release "a really beautiful album," even if that means that some songs have to go to the dumpster. "Even if we write 4 songs, we'll throw 3 of them away and we'll choose 1 [to keep]. We've got to be very selective to be sure that the next album is really good, because it doesn't make sense to make an album otherwise," she relates. The full translated transcript from the televised Italian interview is inside, along with half a dozen more screen captures!

07.09.2003 » Dolores to Sing in Italian for Zucchero Duet, Song Revealed

07.02.2003 » "Dreams" in Trailer for "Mona Lisa Smile"  
[05:03 PM est] » "Dreams" has been on more soundtracks than Oprah has been on diets, and with its presence in a new movie trailer, its very likely that we will be adding another to the already long list. With Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, and Julia Stiles all with lead roles, this movie is sure to be raking in major box office cash when its released this December. Check the news story for links to the streaming trailer.

06.27.2003 » Reporter Spends 48 Hours with The Cranberries  
[10:45 PM est] » Most fans are content just to share a few minutes with their favorite artists -- for a handshake, photo, autograph, or some combination of the three. But could you imagine spending 48 hours with Dolores and the rest of The Cranberries? That's what one reporter for the Irish-based Unison news network did late last year in Milan. (The extended visit apparently included several bottles of red wine as well. )
06.27.2003 » Fergal Puts a Cap on Summer Tour  
[09:46 PM est] » Today The Cranberries finished up their mini European tour with a gig in Killarney, Ireland, likely to be their last live performance for the rest of the year. Here's what Fergal had to say about the tour thus far and about tonight's gig...
06.19.2003 » More Hot Press Private Gig Photos  
[11:05 PM est] » The Cranberries' private Dublin gig this past March was open only to a very select few in the Irish music industry, but that doesn't mean that fans can't get a glimpse of it after the fact. Two new photos from the Hot Press industry-only concert within.
06.19.2003 » Irish Newspaper Reviews Cranberries Official Website

Last week, Irish newspaper The Tuam Herald both reviewed and scored The Cranberries Official Site on everything from content to frequency of updates. How did the newspaper rank the site on a scale of 10 possible points? Click to find out.

[12:20 AM est] » Not only has programmer Matthew Vaughan been dabbling with The Cranberries' new material, but he has a hand in Dolores O'Riordan's piano-and-vocal tracks as well, which are likely to be used for a possible movie soundtrack. Does this mean Stephen Street has joined him for those songs?
06.16.2003 » "Ode" Live Performance on Brazilian DVD  
[05:52 PM est] » A new Brazilian DVD concert compilation called "Rock Revolution" includes a 1996 Cranberries performance of "Ode to My Family." And considering the stratiated list of artists that appear, "Rock Revolution"'s definition of "rock" is a broad one indeed...

[01:06 PM est] » In case you still haven't heard the live incarnations of the new songs, here's a belated news blip on the two new MP3s circulating the Internet.

And to round out this brew of coffee, we have "Analyse" performed on France's Hit Machine in October 2001 (Live Performances 8). Don't miss the very cool lighting, color, and graphic effects. These videos were encoded by a few different authors, and we want to thank each of them for their time and effort. Be sure to check back soon, 'cos we ain't done yet! More videos very soon...

06.01.2003 » Fergal Makes Appearance as Guest Drummer for Headgear

05.30.2003 » Dolores on Astral Projections...  
[01:08 PM est] » The new song may have nothing to do with this, but Dolores has mentioned astral projections before, and the context is quite interesting. What did she have to say about her own astral experiences? Click the headline to find out.
05.29.2003 » Two New Songs at Belfast: "Astral Projection" and "In It Together"!  
[09:56 PM est] » It looks like even after "Stars," The Cranberries still have their heads in the clouds when it comes to writing song titles. Come in for the very first look at the Cranberries' two newest songs that were premiered tonight in Belfast. Only Zombieguide has it first!
05.29.2003 » Official Press Release Reveals Summer Plans  
[01:08 PM est] » As you should know by now, The Cranberries are being paired with one of the biggest bands in the world when they open for the Rolling Stones this summer. This will see the Crans playing to some of the largest audiences they've had in their entire career, which is certainly something to get excited about! Here's some bits from the band's lastest press release...
05.29.2003 » Update: "7 Years" Song and Compilation Not Related  
[10:56 AM est] » Although the titles are the same, "7 Years" the song and compilation surprisingly have nothing to do with each other. Who would have guessed that, five years later, the unreleased "Odd Bits and Hits" would still be making Cranberries headlines??
05.29.2003 » Zombieguide Wants Your Concert Experiences!  
[12:34 AM est] » The Cranberries' brief 2003 European outing kicks off tomorrow night in Belfast, Ireland. We at Zombieguide want your concert photos and impressions -- especially of any surprises (*cough* new songs??) which may pop up -- MP3's, merchandise/memorabilia scans, and pretty much anything related to the upcoming set of gigs. After six months of The Cranberries out of the public eye, we can certainly expect news to get rolling within the next few days, but it'll only happen with our readers' help, so send in your submissions! We'll have lots of news very shortly, including an update on our "7 Years" feature.
05.27.2003 » Feature: The Unheard B-Side: "7 Years"  
[04:55 PM est] » All the theories about unreleased tracks from "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee" finally prove to be right. The Cranberries' management told us today that a Dolores-and-Noel-penned country-style song entitled "7 Years" was never released to the public, and, unfortunately, probably never will anytime soon. Zombieguide has the full story within. Update 9:15 PM: More info. on the aborted Japanese release of "7 Years."
