If you're a current or former alt-rock fan somewhere in the age group of rougly 20-35, you know the music of The Cranberries. There's even a good chance one of the following scenarios really happened to you:
While the band's reunion may seem to follow the "Everybody else is doing it, so why can't we" mentality, what with so many defunctrockacts giving it another go recently, singer Dolores O'Riordan told Paste recently that she gained a lot of perspective through the "whole flippin’ journey" of her bands rise, fall and demise. So expect an older and wiser Cranberries this time around. Riper, if you will.
