The Cranberries clinch Grammy nomination for Dolores O'Riordan's final album

LIMERICK-BASED rock band The Cranberries have been nominated for a Grammy for their final album, In The End.

The album, which was released earlier this year and which features vocals recorded by Dolores O'Riordan before her death in 2018, is nominated for a Grammy for best Rock Album alongside albums from Bring Me The Horizon, Cage The Elephant, I Prevail and Rival Sons.

Should In The End win the award, it will be the band's first Grammy win-- a bittersweet moment for the remaining members after the singer's untimely passing.

Bassist Mike Hogan, guitarist Noel Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler completed the album using vocals recorded by Ms O'Riordan before her death and released the first single, All Over Now on her first anniversary.

Upon the announcement of the nomination, the surviving members released a statement on Twitter saying:

"We are humbly honoured with the news that our final album “In the End” has been nominated for a 2020 Grammy in the category of Best Rock Album.

It’s a fitting tribute to Dolores and her truly amazing talents. She would be immensely proud."

The band had previously confirmed that In The End would be their final album, saying that no-one wanted to continue without Dolores.

The awards ceremony will take place in January 2020 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, USA.
