The Cranberries confirm they will split after the release of their final album

They are finishing up their final album.

The world was shocked when news broke that Dolores O'Riordan had passed away in January of 2018.

Soon after her death, it was revealed that The Cranberries had been working on an album at the time.

O'Riordan's publicist confirmed that the Limerick band were working on a follow-up to 2017's Something Else, The Cranberrie's most recent project.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the remaining members stated that they would split up following the release of the upcoming album.

Noel Hogan, the lead guitarist and co-songwriter of The Cranberries said that O'Riordan found it easier to write while she was battling demons, saying: “Dolores had an awful lot going on and she was on a roll of being able to write.

“Lyrically, the new album is very strong. She always said she found it hard to write songs when she was happy. She always said: put a bit of misery in her life and it was easier."

Speaking on the band's future, Hogan went on to say: "We will do this album and then that will be it. There is no need to continue."

The final album entitled In The End, will be released in 2019.
