Snow Patrol is one of those bands that you known for a long time if you keep your ears tuned in to the music scene … or that you’ve known for just a short time if you only stay on top of current trends. The Irish band has been playing since the late ‘90’s but only began to gain real recognition in the U.S. in the last couple of years, starting with their 2004 CD release Final Straw. They showed up in London in 2005 for the Live 8 Mega Humanitarian Conference. And then their 2006 North American tour, supporting their newest CD Eyes Open, sold out in the United States and the fans have demanded that they come back again. They’ll be showing up around the world, with a North American tour from February through April.
