Snow Patrol set to release new album this summer, reveals frontman Gary Lightbody
Snow Patrol are set to release their first album after a six-year hiatus, frontman Gary Lightbody has revealed.
The Co Down man revealed the band is getting back into the studio in May.
And Lightbody said in a post online that the new album could be released as early as June.
“For the folks asking about the new snow patrol album #SP7.
“Here’s the news. we had a breakthrough recording session in Feb and are on the home straight. The awesome Jacknife Lee is in the producer’s chair as usual and we have more time with him in the studio in May/June and will be finished at the end of June.
“Hopefully that gives us plenty of time to bring the album out this year, that is the plan.
“Plans are fallible but we'll damn well try our best.”
He said while there have been a “few false starts”, the band, best known for top hits such as Run and Chasing Cars, is now “on the right track”.
“It’s sounding mighty, I'm very proud of what we’ve done so far and cannot wait for you all to hear it,” he posted online.
“Thank you all for your patience and support. Six years is a bloody eternity between albums we know so the fact people are still asking when it's coming means a lot to us.
“We’ll post updates from the studio from late may onwards. Big love good people.”
