The Cranberries will return with Roses, their first studio album in over a decade, for Valentine’s Day, 2012 via Cooking Vinyl for the world on February 13th and Cooking Vinyl via Downtown Records in the U.S. on February 14th.   The Cranberries, Dolores O’Riordan, Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler, began their career in their native Limerick, Ireland in 1989 and sold more than thirty million albums worldwide in the nineteen nineties.   Roses was produced by the band’s longtime friend and collaborator Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) and harkens back to the freshness and originality of the band’s first two albums, 1993’s Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? and the 1994 follow up, No Need to Argue.   Prior to Roses, the band’s most recent album was Wake Up And Smell The Coffee, which was released in 2001.
