big fan of chocolate

I love their song Chocolate by the stations around here haven't added any songs from eyes open to the rotation. I will have to check out their stuff elsewhere.

Try the bands website or internet radio. I'm starting to come around to more songs on this album. I heard Hands Open in the car today and it sounded fantastic. Sometimes you need to be cruising down the highway, instead of on the couch in the living room, for a song to shine through.

Kind of off topic but I didn't want to start a whole new thread- Martha Wainwright (sp?) is on Rachel Fuller and Pete Townshend's show tonight. She was really good, and funny too. It will be replayed until tomorrow morning- the link to watch is on www.intheattic.tv

I don't know the exact Soundscan figure, but Hits Daily Double gave it an estimate of 36,000 copies.

That's pretty good. I think All That I Have would be a better single in the States.

Yeah, I was not quite sure why there were different singles for the UK and US

Mediatraffic numbers for global sales are in:

Here are the results for the first two weeks of release:

Week 1 (148,000 copies sold)
Week 2 (129,000 copies sold)


Eyes open has topped the UK and Irish album charts. In the USA it hit #34, Netherlands #26, Australia #36, Canada #26, France #108.

The album was released in some places on May 1 and other places May 8 or May 9. With the album released everywhere around the globe now, total global sales are 277,000. Snow Patrol's East Coast dates in the USA rapidly soldout a few days after the release of the album here in the USA.

Soundscan total for "Eyes Open" first week in the USA was 36,191. Thats a bit more than the 5,000 copies Final Straw sold in its first week two years ago.

In terms of how I'm liking "Eyes Open", at this point I'd say its walking all over "Final Straw" now. This album is fantastic!

I figured you'd chime in with exact numbers. Thanks.

And I'll be the first to predict that the album goes ballistic when "Chasing Cars" hits the airwaves.

They just played Open Your Eyes at the end of tonight's "ER".

And I agree, once Chasing Cars hits, they're going to be everywhere (more than they already are).

And all of us who came on board long before Run will have to accept a whole new breed of fans.

Well, this sucks...

TONIGHTS SHOW IN ATLANTA AND WEDNESDAY IN DC POSTPONED!!!!
Body: Hello all

Ive some bad news.

Were going to have to postpone the shows today, May 29, in Atlanta and Wednesday, May 31st in D.C.

We are trying to add these shows in at the end of this tour. Failing that we are back to do some radio shows in mid-August and we will schedule them there.

The reason for this is my voice is in pieces. You may have seen us on Good Morning America this morning and if you did youll be aware I barely scraped through it and that was only one song.

When we began the Eyes Open tour in Feb of this year I was told by my doctor a few days before hand that I had laryngitis and it would be best if I took a week off to recover. I told him I didnt have a week as we had shows pretty much every day. All the gigs so far have been a struggle for me. Unfortunately now I can barely hit any notes. My entire upper range has disappeared into a whisper.

Some of you may come to the conclusion that this is because were a party band and were out every night getting messed up. Yes we like a drink. I however have taken it reasonable easy since Feb in that department and I havent been drinking on this US tour at all and Ive every intention of not partying for the duration of it. In fact Ive been in the gym every morning and eating right.

In short Im taking it very seriously. The simple fact is that my voice is worn out.

I am doing everything possible to get it working again. I am seeing a specialist in New York tomorrow who hopefully will be able to help. Ive even agreed (horror of all horrors!!) to see a voice coach.

If there was any way to sing two full shows and do a full days promo in Atlanta and D.C believe me I would. The reason why the two shows have been affected is to give me four days to recover.

We refuse to cancel gigs which is why we will do everything in our power to find available dates (when we too are available) in those venues for the not to distant future.

I am so sorry for this to all of you who have bought tickets especially those of you who have travelled long distances to these shows. Of course we will make sure that these tickets are still valid, as I say they arent cancelled theyre just postponed. Well give you the info for the new shows as soon as we know.

Lots of love, gary.x
I hope he takes it easy, as I know most of us have tickets to go see them very soon...
