Snow Patrol!

So who in here has heard of this band?

This band is from Belfast/Glasgow.

I saw them back in the Spring in Philadelphia and they were great! I only have one of their albums by they have two other's. The New Album is called "Final Straw" and it is a fantastic album. I sort of think of them as Coldplay but with a lot more energy! I like a lot of the music and production of the album. This is definitely the new band to watch! They are already huge in the UK and Ireland with "Final Straw" having sold 600,000 copies in the UK alone and the album hitting #1 in Ireland.

I just saw them on The Wedge on Much Music last night. Great track, the name of which completely escapes me at the moment. Check out Looks like they could be opening for U2!

Speaking of The Wedge, (this goes out to the ones of Canadian persuasion) that not a great show or what? Best thing on Much Music. I watched three straight videos before heading to bed last night: First was the one by Snow Patrol; next was 'High and Dry' by Radiohead, followed by 'There Goes the Fear Again' by Doves. Is that last one not the best video of all time or what?! Seriously, who would have thought it were possible to mish mash mountain scenes of Rio shot from a flying car with lightening fast ocean-riding trains, all the while viewing bikini clad women prancing in a kind of quasi half light jusxtaposed in and out of an entangled bliss of scenes from the 20th Century. Surreal.

I'm not all that familiar with Snow Patrol, but I have heard Spitting Games and Chocolate. I like both songs, especially Chocolate, and would like to hear more sometime.

I'm a big Snow Patrol fan! I've seen them twice and am so hoping they end up opening for U2 on some dates. (I've heard rumors, no idea how plausible they are but I hear that Bono is a fan? )

I love Final Straw... unfortunately their shows in FL, which I was going to attend, had to be postponed because of Hurricane Frances

But hopefully they'll make up the dates sometime

What she said.
Tickets are like bloody gold dust for their upcoming tour.

and check out their album before Final Straw- "When it's all over we still have to clear up" which is also pretty damn good

I've only heard 'Spitting Games' and 'Run'.

I was very unimpressed with 'Spitting Games' honestly. I dont hat it it, but I dont love it (though I may later) But I really really really really really liked 'Run' So yeah, I dont really know what I think so far.

Yep, most definitely was...sorry you couldn't make it!
I tried to cut my raving about it short...

It was such a good show though - the crowd was SO into it, (a few people were a little TOO into it), and even took over "Run" during the chorus...a LOT of energy.

I'm seeing them this Friday

And yes, Michael Griffiths, The Wedge IS the best show on Much Music (but also keep in mind that 80% of what MM plays is crap).
