(Inside Manila) Irish rock band ‘The Cranberries’ on Wednesday, March 7, said they will continue the release of their final album with front woman Dolores O’Riordan and reissue a special edition of their debut album ‘Everybody Else is doing it so why can’t we’ to mark the album’s 25th anniversary despite O’Riordan’s passing.

“In recent weeks we revisited this. After much consideration we have decided to finish what we started. We thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it,” the band said.

Despite Dolores’ death last January 2018 the band is hopeful in finishing what they started.

In a Facebook post, they confirmed that they will be completing the recording of their last studio album with O’Riordan which they started last year and for which Dolores had already recorded the vocals. They are expecting to release it in early 2019.

“All going well we hope to have this new album finished and out early next year,” it said in the post.

The three surviving members of the group Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler have been working with Universal Music since last summer to recreate and re-master their debut album. They also have been planning to launch their unreleased and bonus materials from the era of their album later this year.

“In recent weeks we have had a number of media enquiries asking if we were planning anything to commemorate this milestone,” they said.

Dolores was found dead in a London Hotel and her death’s full inquest will be released in April 3. Authorities, however, said that her death does not post suspicious threats.

With their trance-inducing sonic textures and florid punk genre, ‘The Cranberries’ proved to be an international success through songs like “Linger” and “Zombie”.
