Scotland’s Snow Patrol is one of those bands that’s been known in the U.K. a lot longer than they’ve been known in the U.S. The gushing reviews for the first album released in the U.S., Final Straw, is actually their third album if you live across the Pond.
But their first U.S. tour last year did great and after a hard-earned rest, they’ll be back in April, kicking things off at Stubb’s in Austin, Texas on the 24th. Traveling through Dallas, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, Calgary, Winnipeg and other cities before winding things down in Minneapolis May 11th.
The band just changed its founding bass player, and this time they’re bringing a band called Embrace, a Leeds-based unit that has built a following overseas. They’ve only done a few showcase dates here and SxSW, but the response has been overwhelming. According to Embrace’s label, Lava Records, fans lined up for hours to get into their L.A. show.
