Multi-platinum Irish/Scottish five-piece SNOW PATROL are bringing their highly anticipated ‘Fallen Empires Tour’ to Singapore on August 6th, 2012! This will be the band’s first ever performance in Singapore and their only show in S.E. Asia except for Manila.
The band’s latest Album ‘Fallen Empires’ was released on 14th Nov 2011. Recorded in Los Angeles with long-time producer Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee, ‘Fallen Empires’ features the hit ‘Called Out In The Dark’ and stunning new single ‘This Isn’t Everything You Are’.
Snow Patrol – singer Gary Lightbody, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, drummer Jonny Quinn and keyboardist, Tom Simpson – recorded ‘Fallen Empires’ at Eagles Watch in Santa Monica, California. Tracks were mixed at the studio owned by ‘Jacknife’ Lee, a hacienda in Topanga Canyon, the one time hippy commune and former home to Neil Young and Woody Guthrie.
Backing vocals were recorded by the LA Inner City Mass Gospel Choir in Compton, and Troy Van Leuwen from Queens Of The Stone Age provides additional guitars on two tracks. ‘Fallen Empires’ retains the essence of Snow Patrol’s appeal.
The catch-all emotional dynamics are still there: the soulful ‘New York’ feels like a festival moment-in-waiting; ‘The Garden Rules’ a soundtrack to autumnal romance, and in ‘This Isn’t Everything You Are’ Snow Patrol have created another starkly beautiful masterpiece, the equal of their classics ‘Run’ and ‘Chasing Cars’. Quite simply, it is their best record to date and promises to redefine Snow Patrol as an altogether more ambitious, more expansive, creative force.
