The Cranberries are an Irish rock band formed in Limerick City in 1989. The band members are vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler.
The Cranberries rose to international fame in the 1990s with their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, which sold over five million copies in the United States. The group was one of the most successful rock acts of the ’90s and sold over 15 million albums in the United States alone. The band has achieved four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?; No Need to Argue; To the Faithful Departed and Bury the Hatchet).
After a six-year hiatus, The Cranberries reunited and began a North American tour, followed by dates in South America and Europe in early 2010.
The Cranberries recorded their sixth album, Roses, in May 2011, and released it on 27 February 2012.
