Last week, Snow Patrol announced their return after seven years and now have revealed their new single and an intimate Irish tour.
The Northern Irish band have been away from the spotlight for seven years but returned with details of their seventh album Wildness, last week. Snow Patrol have now announced details of their first tour in five years.
Along with the news that they’ll be hitting the road again later this year, the ‘Chasing Cars’ band have unveiled the lead single for their forthcoming album. ‘Don’t Give In’ is a motivational song, urging to not quit and keep on fighting whatever battle you’re taking on in life. The track is littered with gorgeous melodies and a rousing beat, supporting the theme.
“It’s in your blood and it’s in your making, so don’t hold your tongue cos it’s no longer working. Don’t fall on your sword, just follow your instincts, like an old lesson learned…” Gary Lightbody’s poetic words haven’t faltered during the band’s dormant period. He sings from experience as he passes on words of wisdom about how that no matter how bad times can be, they’ll always get better.
With soaring guitars and another soulful rendition of the chorus, it draws to a close a triumphant return for the band. Check out the video for ‘Don’t Give In’ below.
With the new album due out in May, Snow Patrol announced they’ll be hitting the road in the build up to its release with an intimate tour across Ireland. The tour will kick off in Derry at the Millenium Forum on May 11th. The nine-day tour will see them play in Cork, Killarney, Dublin, Wexford and Galway. On May 20th, the band will perform in their hometown Belfast, in Ulster Hall.
Tickets go on sale on March 30th via Ticketmaster, with an early access sale on March 28th, for those who pre-order the album from the band’s website.
