Snow Patrol Gold
PR reports: You'd have to be living in a cave for the entirety of 2006 if Snow Patrol's steady and strong climb onwards and upwards across the globe has not become apparent to you yet. While their emotionally provocative and equally rocking 'Eyes Open' (Interscope) continues to sell over the counter 30,000 weekly in the USA, Snow Patrol have secured their place in the Top 30 on the Billboard Album Charts, consequently resulting in scanning certified GOLD IN THE USA! The rate this musical gem is selling is a sure fire indicator that they will be near Platinum by the new year, as many industry insiders have predicted. 

In response to their previous sold out US tour and overwhelming demand, Snow Patrol will return to the US this February and March where they're expected to play 3,000- 6,000 + capacity sized venues.[see full story for dates]- Click Here for the Full Story
