Sven B. Schreiber Dolores O'Riordan of "The Cranberries" passed away two days after "The Arches" released their excellent "Transport Album". Well, not a problem for this band to publish a tribute album in time anyway! Two weeks later, it's already there. As usual, it sounds different from previous works, but the typical "Arches handwriting" always shines through. And if you listen closely, you will hear the basic chord progression of "Zombie", too. Guess on which song... Favorite track: Afterglow.

about

“I hope to arrive at my death, late, in love, and a little drunk. ”
― Atticus Poetry, Love Her Wild

We are deeply saddened by the death of Dolores O'Riordan. She was a hero to us. We spent the 1990s enamored by the incredible vocals of the spirited woman from Limerick, Ireland. We have all the Cranberries CDs and are continuously inspired by the melodies and lyrics of Dolores's amazing songwriting.

May the Angels protect you
And heaven accept you
