Yes! Snow Patrol are making a comeback after six years apart


Snow Patrol are officially making a comeback! 

The band members have been working on solo projects for the past six years, but now they have their mojo back as a collective. 

The Northern Irish quintet are working on a new album, and lead vocalist Gary Lightbody took to Instagram to update fans.

"For the folks asking about the new snow patrol album, #SP7. here’s the news. we had a breakthrough recording session in feb and are on the home straight," he said, captioning a shot of the new album's song list.

"The awesome Jacknife Lee is in the producer’s chair as usual and we have more time with him in the studio in May/June and will be finished at the end of June."

"Hopefully that gives us plenty of time to bring the album out this year. That is the plan. Plans are fallible but we'll damn well try our best."

"There have been a few false starts so I didn’t want to post something until i knew we were on the right track. We are. It’s sounding mighty.

"I’m very proud of what we’ve done so far and cannot wait for you all to hear it. thank you all for your patience and support."

"Six years is a bloody eternity between albums we know so the fact people are still asking when it's coming means a lot to us. We’ll post updates from the studio from late may onwards," finished the post.

We're delighted that the lads are making a comeback, and we can't wait to hear the album this year.

Now, if only they would announce a tour…
