THE CRANBERRIES Announce Final Album: Rolling Stone
Earlier today, on the one-year anniversary of the death singer Dolores O’Riordan, The Cranebrries announced their final album, titled In the End. It’s a collection of songs that O’Riordan worked on prior to her passing (the cause of which was accidental drowning). The Cranberries also shared the album’s first single, “All Over Now”, which you can listen to here.
O’Riordan’s mother Eileen said in a statement: “I miss her awfully, especially today… She was very excited about this album and was really looking forward to its release. I have no doubt that she would be delighted with today’s announcement.”
METALLICA Announce a New Beer: WMMR.com
It wasn’t long ago that Metallica launched their ‘Blackened’ blended whiskey, but if you’re more of a beer drinker, the band announced the ‘Enter Night’ Pilsner. In partnership with the Stone Brewing Company, this Metallica-branded beer, comes in six-packs and will be available on draft as well. It’s 5.7 percent ABV and 45 IBUs. Lars Ulrich says: “This collaboration is beyond effortless and pure, and we can’t wait to share this incredible beverage with everyone out there.”
BLINK 182 Inspired a Ranch Dressing: Loudwire
Blink 182’s album Dude Ranch has inspired a new vegan ranch dressing. The brand will make its debut on Thursday at a release party in LA. Co-founder Angela Simmons says the recipe uses alternatives for dairy ingredients such as mayonnaise and buttermilk, replacing them with vegan mayo and soaked cashews, and adding spices that make it “pretty packed with flavor but not overwhelming.”
The members of BLINK 182 have yet to comment on the “Dude Ranch” condiment.
