RNR News and Notes

 

One year to the date of the passing of Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries frontwoman's passing, the band has released the first single from what will be their final record.  The song, "All Over Now", is from the aptly titled album In The End - set to be released on April 26, 2019.  

 

In a statement on facebook, band members Mike and Noel Hogan, and drummer Fergal Lawler said: 

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.

They also added - "We dedicate this album to our dear friend and bandmate Dolores. She will always be with us in her music.”.
