Biography

Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish rock band, formed in Dundee, Scotland, in 1994, consisting of Gary Lightbody (vocals, rhythm guitar), Nathan Connolly (lead guitar, backing vocals), Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), and Johnny McDaid (piano, rhythm guitar, backing vocals). Initially an indie rock band, the band rose to prominence in the early-mid 2000s as part of the post-Britpop movement.

The band were founded at the University of Dundee in 1994 by Lightbody, Mark McClelland, and Michael Morrison as Shrug. After briefly using the name Polarbear, releasing the EP Starfighter Pilot (1997) and losing Morrison as a member, the band became Snow Patrol in 1997 and added Quinn to its line-up. Their first two studio albums, SONGS FOR POLABEARS (1998) and WHEN IT’S ALL OVER WE STILL HAVE TO CLEAR UP (2001), were commercially unsuccessful and were released by the independent record label Jeepster Records. The band then signed to the major record label Polydor Records in 2002.

Connolly joined Snow Patrol in 2002, and after their major-label debut album, FINAL STRAW, the following year, the band rose to national fame. The album was certified 5× platinum in the UK and eventually sold over 3 million copies worldwide. Their next studio album, EYES OPEN (2006), and its hit single, ‘Chasing Cars’ – the most widely played song of the 21st century on UK radio – propelled the band to greater international fame. The album topped the UK Albums Chart and was the best-selling British album of the year, selling over 6 million copies worldwide. In 2008, the band released their fifth studio album, A HUNDRED MILLION SUNS; then, in 2009, they released their first compilation album, UP TO NOW; and, in 2011, released their sixth studio album, FALLEN EMPIRES. The band released their seventh album, WILDNESS, on 25 May 2018. The band’s eighth album REWORKED is set for release in late 2019 followed by a tour.
