The part Irish, part Scottish band has come a long way since their first album Songs for Polar Bear in 1998. They have transformed from a cultish indie band into a stadium-packing tour de force having sold over 11 million albums worldwide featuring for era-defining singles including Run, Chocolate and Chasing Cars. Snow Patrol has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, Grammys and MTV Europe Music Awards, and won an Ivor Novello Award in 2005 with the album Final Straw.
Following the success of album A Hundred Million Suns in 2008, the five-piece – singer Gary Lightbody, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, drummer Johnny Quinn and keyboardist Tom Simpson released their sixth album Fallen Empires in 2011. With distorted electro guitar riffs, club-friendly drums and anthemic choruses, the album has redefined the band as a more ambitious and more expansive creative force. Despite the experimentation, Fallen Empires still retains the essence of Snow Patrol’s appeal: the soulful New York feels like a festival moment; The Garden Rules a soundtrack to autumnal romance.
Fans should seize their chance to be part of Snow Patrol’s one night only live gig. Brought to you by Midas Promotions, Snow Patrol Live in Hong Kong 2012 is held on 4 August 2012 at AsiaWorld-Expo.
