Snow Patrol Begins Work On New Album

Snow Patrol took the US by storm with their breakthrough album Final Straw. It looks like the Irish quartet wants to stay fresh in our minds and have begun work on their next album. According to Billboard, the band started an eight-week session of writing and recording in Dingle, Ireland. An executive at Fiction Records said: “We hope to have a new record later this year, but it'll be ready when it's ready. We're not putting any pressure on the guys to deliver it. They've got a few tunes in the pipeline and they're pretty confident about them."

They are not quite done promoting their latest release in the US, with a month-long tour kicking off April 23 in Spring, TX. About touring, frontman Gary Lightbody said: “Most British bands approach touring here with the wrong attitude. Coldplay toured and toured and toured. U2 basically came and lived here and worked so hard that it really paid off. That model is really the only model you can work from. If you're prepared to come and put in the time, people respect that. You can make fans for life here. People only really get to appreciate a band when they can see them face to face."
