IRISH FOLK BAND The Cranberries (right) are back with their long-awaited third album, Bury the Hatchet. Since the phenomenal success of their first two recordings, which sold over 13 million copies, the band have been taking it easy with lead singer Dolores O'Riordan finding time to become a mother. The new album will be followed by a gig, their first in three years since O'Riordan collapsed suffering from exhaustion. Refreshed and with new material, 1999 should see The Cranberries competing once more with the likes of Catatonia and The Manic Street Preachers.
