→ Listen to the brand new remix of ‘Called Out in the Dark’!
CHART SPOTLIGHT. I’ve played Snow Patrol’s ‘Called Out in the Dark’ constantly since I blogged about the video. The group’s next single will be ‘This Isn’t Everything You Are’ and will be available on the new set Fallen Empire. Expected to bow on November 14, the album will include fourteen new tracks, blending electro guitar riffs with club friendly drums and Gary Lightbody’s touching lyrics. Gary Lightbody (singer), Nathan Connolly (guitarist), (Paul Wilson (bass), Jonny Quinn (drums) and Tom Simpson (keyboard) recorded the album in Los Angeles together with the producer Garrett ‘Jacknife’ Lee.
Inspired by U2
Fallen Empires is inspired by LCD Soundsystem’s The Sound of Silver, U2’s Achtung Baby and Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. Despite the great musical variation, Snow Patrol has stuck to its core and this is a strong follow-up to 2008’s A Hundred Million Suns and 2009’s million selling Up to Now. I still think that their classic hit ‘Chasing Cars’ is the best track from Snow Patrol. Not least because it came to new life in Grey’s Anatomy. The Snow Patrol hit ‘Run’ has also been covered by Leona Lewis.
Snow Patrol will tour the UK and Ireland in 2012, and already second shows have been added to the tour.
