The Cranberries reform

Nineties Irish rockers The Cranberries have announced that they will reform to play a series of gigs across the US and Europe, starting this November.

It has been over seven years since vocalist Dolores O’Riordan and fellow bandmates Noel and Michael Hogan and Fergal Lawler announced that they would be taking time out to – œpursue other projects’. Arguably one of the nineties biggest bands, selling over five million copies of their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, their semi-retirement in 2003 came a decade after their seminal hit Zombie.

According to NME the band announced the reunion to coincide with the release of O’Riodan’s new solo album, songs from which they will perform live. Guitarist and song-writer Noel Hogan made a statement on behalf of the band to formally announce the tour, “Over the last few years, each member of the band has had time to work on different projects and learn so much from their experience. Now the time is right for The Cranberries to bring all of this together and move forward.”

Only time will tell how long they plan to linger.

You're making the leap that people know the names of Cranberries' albums.

I love the cranberries. I saw them in Dublin in 2002. Would see them if they toured.

btw, Fool, that was some of your best work.

I dont think what either of us did is technically a pun Fool...

Definition of a pun: A pun, or paronomasia, is a form of word play that deliberately exploits ambiguity between similar-sounding words for humorous or rhetorical effect.
