About The Cranberries
Dolores O'Riordan was easily one of the most visible females in the music industry in the 1990s. That's because she rose to fame as the lead vocalist of the Cranberries, one of the most successful groups to emerge from the U.K. indie scene.
Surprisingly, the Cranberries really failed to make a splash in Britain early on, but did so when their ballad "Linger" became a hit in the U.S. in 1993. It was that song that made the group international superstars, and both their debut album (1993's "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" and the follow-up "No Need to Argue" both sold millions of copies.
As most artists do, the Cranberries tried a new sound with the making of their third album, "To The Faithful Departed." Unfortunately, fans were keen on the distorted guitars and more rock-oriented sound. Their commercial success would meet a steady decline, straight through 2001's "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee" and a greatest hits compilation released the following year. Shortly thereafter, the band members announced they would be splitting up.
Though O'Riordan would go on to meet success with a solo career, the Cranberries reunited in January 2009. The band originally claimed there was no 'official' reunion, but after they came out to support the release of O'Riordan's second album, it seemed to be the catalyst to get the Cranberries back in the recording studio and back on the road again as part of a North American and European tour. Their latest album, "Roses," was released on February 27, 2012.
