Snow Patrol

A few months ago, I heard rumors that Snow Patrol was going to disband due to lead singer Gary Lightbody's vocal problems. An unfortunate thought for sure, as the band has written some of the most memorable alternative rock songs of the last few years.

All of the songs on this year's Eyes Open are absolute gems, whether a rocking hit single that name checks Sufjan Stevens ("Hands Open") or a haunting melodic and lyrical depiction of the loneliness that sets in when you're away from the one you love ("Set The Fire To The Third Bar"). The newest single "Chasing Cars" is a lush love song with lyrics that will make even the most heartless cynic swoon, most notably "I don't quite know how to say how I feel / Those three words are said too much / They're not enough."

Luckily, those break up rumors were just that--rumors. Snow Patrol is still together and will continue their massive world tour for the next couple of months. Make sure to catch them when they hit your town, you don't want to miss them live.
