Snow Patrol press playback for early taste of new album

By Maureen Coleman

Snow Patrol fans are to be given a chance to hear the band's new studio album at a public playback in Belfast next month.

The sixth studio album Fallen Empires will be played in full at the Malmaison hotel on Thursday, November 3 ahead of its release later in the month and the band's outdoor MTV gig at the City Hall on November 6.

Recorded in Los Angeles with long-time producer Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee, Fallen Empires features the hit Called Out In The Dark.

The album can be heard at a series of playbacks in conjunction with Renegade Promotions, taking place in Malmaison hotel bars across the Northern Ireland, Scotland and England.

The Belfast playback takes place from 6pm to 8pm and fans are advised to arrive early to guarantee admission as capacity is limited. However, the band itself will not be at the event.

In addition to the playbacks, fans will receive a free album poster, as well as entry into a competition to win a pair of tickets for the upcoming arena tour.

The 14-track album breaks new ground for Snow Patrol, bolting distorted, electro guitar riffs, club-friendly drums and anthemic choruses to Gary Lightbody's heart-bruised lyricism.

However, it retains the essence of Snow Patrol’s appeal, with new single This Isn’t Everything You Are expected to be a huge hit.
