Snow Patrol Debuts New Single and Video with "Don't Give In"

Today Snow Patrol premiered “Don’t Give In,” the lead single from Wildness, their first record in seven years via BBC Radio 2. Gary Lightbody, lead singer and songwriter, said “‘Don’t Give In’ was originally about a friend going through a tough time but the more I wrote into it I realized it was about me and the struggle of making the album—which took 5 years and was not easy—coupled with the struggle with depression I’ve had since I was a kid, so it has become the talisman of the album. The song that became a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Snow Patrol also announced shows in New York City, Los Angeles, and London in April
and throughout Ireland and the UK in May (full dates below). Tickets for these dates will
be available for fans who purchased Wildness via the Official Snow Patrol store prior to
Tuesday, March 27 at 1pm EDT. Remaining tickets will be available to the general
public starting Friday, March 30 at 10 AM local here.

The band will release a special limited 10” of “Don’t Give In” backed with album track
“Life On Earth” for Record Store Day on April 21. On May 25, Snow Patrol will return with Wildness, which finds the band searching for clarity, connection and meaning, while staying true to the melodic songwriting prowess that brought them to prominence. Wildness taps into something raw and primitive. On the entire album, 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, illogic 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 centered around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.”

You can pre-order your copy of Wildness from the Official Snow Patrol store to be among the first to access tickets to see Snow Patrol live. Check out the new music video and the tour dates below.
