Gary also sat down and chatted with us about the new album. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snow Patrol [/lastfm]will be doing a live concert, part of the Live On Letterman series on Monday, January 9. Get all the info here.
Instead of working on the album back in Ireland, the bandmembers headed to Los Angeles and Malibu, Calif., for a totally different scenery, waking up each day to sunshine and warmth. With the exception of a few shows in Mexico with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]U2[/lastfm], they stayed off the road, off the stage and dedicated 18 months to the making of this record.
A major change for this album was that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gary Lightbody [/lastfm]did not go into the sessions with demos. As a matter of fact, maybe due to this, he hit a writers block and started to panic. But soon enough, it all came together and they were off to making a super strong album.
