SNOW Patrol confirms 11 headlining dates in the UK and Ireland throughout December and January, including one at Bournemouth International Centre on January 27.

Snow Patrol’s album Wildness, their first album in seven years, is out now.

Wildness taps into something raw and primitive.

Lead-singer and songwriter Gary Lightbody says: “There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all its confusion, illogical and alienation and a more ancient wildness.

“Something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other.

“This is the kind of wildness the album is centred around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.”

To celebrate the release of Wildness, Snow Patrol has debuted new music videos for A Youth Written In Fire, Life and Death, Wild Horses, and A Dark Switch.

Snow Patrol recently returned to Later... With Jools Holland where they debuted a live rendition of Empress, along with performances of Life On Earth, Heal Me, and Chasing Cars.

Snow Patrol also appeared as musical guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show With James Corden in April and performed Don’t Give In, the first single from Wildness.
