O’Riordan and Hogan “were sending each other ideas on and off” during hiatus

While Roses release date continues to make the headline all over the world on various news sites – mainly reporting what had already been said on Billboard.com –, Australian site AAABackstage published a new short interview with the band last week. 

During this interview, guitarist Noel Hogan explained that he and lead singer Dolores O’Riordan continued to share ideas for new music during the band’s six-year hiatus.

O’Riordan also talked about how unique making music with the band and producer Stephen Street is. “Having recorded two albums with various different musicians during our hiatus, I could clearly see that Noel and Mike have a unique way of creating chords and Ferg keeps it together in a subtle way.  We had a blast in the studio, Stephen was in his zone and it came together rather quickly.”

Lucky Australians will be the first ones to get a hand on a copy of Roses – to be released on Shock Records/Cooking Vinyl on February 10, 2012 – and to hear the new songs on tour, in March 2012.
