The tour news goes along with today’s release of the Irish alternative rock group’s seventh studio album, Something Else. The project features acoustic versions of “Linger,” “Dreams” and seven other previously released singles, newly recorded with the Irish Chamber Orchestra.
The album also includes three new tracks.  
“[Dolores] O’Riordan has lost neither her Irish lilt, nor the articulated curlicues in her voice that will be warmly recognizable to any longtime Cranberries listener,” Consequence Of Sound’s Karen Gwee writes in a review of the LP.

“The songs do hold up, showing their age only when their lyrics are specific to a fault (see the charmingly juvenile lines of ‘Ode to My Family’). That The Cranberries’ songs are as full of grace and spark years on is testament to the strength of O’Riordan’s and Noel Hogan’s songwriting.” 
The “Something Else” tour features The Cranberries performing with a string quartet. Following a previously announced European outing, the North American leg launches Sept. 11 in Nashville with a gig at
Cities on the routing include Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, Montreal, Toronto and Denver.

Tickets go on sale to the general public May 5.
