2 on the Alternative Album and Rock Album charts and made it to No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200.
Empires showcases a new side to Snow Patrol. The band experimented with improvisational writing in the recording studio and also worked in some collaborations with Michael Stipe, Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age) and Folk Rock singer/songwriter Lissie. The new album pushes the band’s sound in a much more danceable direction.
Snow Patrol is on tour in support of Empires, but expect to channel the ’06 version of yourself when they bust out “Chasing Cars.”
