Snow Patrol confirm two new headlining dates in the U.K. including a date at Bournemouth International Centre on Sunday 27 January.
Snow Patrol’s album Wildness, their first album in seven years, is out now and available for purchase on all formats. To celebrate the release of Wildness, Snow Patrol debuted new music videos for A Youth Written In Fire, Life and Death, Wild Horses, Soon, and A Dark Switch. The band has previously released music videos for Empress, What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?, Life On Earth, and Don’t Give In.
Snow Patrol recently returned to Later... With Jools Holland where they debuted a live rendition of Empress, along with performances of Life On Earth, Heal Me and Chasing Cars. Snow Patrol also appeared as musical guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 19th and The Late Late Show With James Corden on April 24th and performed Don’t Give In, the first single from the album.
Since their 1998 debut, Songs for Polarbears, Snow Patrol has racked up an impressive number of critical and commercial accolades, including 15 million global album sales, 1+ billion global track streams, five UK Platinum Albums, and are Grammy, BRIT Award and Mercury Music Prize nominated. After their Fallen Empires tour ended in 2012, band members —which also include multi-instrumentalist Johnny McDaid, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, and drummer Jonny Quinn — decided to take a step back from the band, and focus on their own projects. Gary Lightbody continued his work with his Tired Pony side project with members of Belle and Sebastian, R.E.M, Reindeer Section and Fresh Young Fellows and moved to Los Angeles to begin writing songs for movies (including “This Is How You Walk On” for 2017’s Gifted), and doing a number of high-profile co-writes with Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Biffy Clyro, and One Direction. Taking this extended break from Snow Patrol proved to be a source of inspiration, and writing songs that were not pulled directly from his own psyche helped heal what Lightbody considered to be not so much writer’s block as life block.
