The Cranberries Are Releasing A New Album, Played Fallon Last Night, Heading On Tour

Even as a site that trucks in nostalgic / veteran acts, we're still pretty amazed at all of the acts we've been seeing reunite and get ready to release new albums. Add '90s Irish alt-rockers The Cranberries to the list - they're putting out their first new album in 11 years, Roses, on February 28 via Downtown, and last night they stopped by the extremely-well-booked Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to rock through the album's first single, "Tomorrow." (Hat Tip: Stereogum)

Check out the clip below along with a web-exclusive performance of the classic "Dreams" (you can't NOT know that song, give it a listen). Dolores O'Riordan and the gang also confirmed today that they'll be playing a spate of East Coast and Canadian tour dates in May, bringing them to our acclaimed (he said with heavy sarcasm) Terminal 5 on May 4. Tickets for that show are onsale on February 17, and you can check out their website to see when they're coming to a city near you - because they probably are, given that massive touring schedule.
