Songs For Polarbears - 25th Anniversary Edition

    Snow Patrol have produced their debut album on vinyl for the first time since its initial pressing of 1,000 copies. A 25th Anniversary limited edition will be available on Arctic Pearl White vinyl and includes an exclusive Art Print adapted from the original promotional poster for the album and with a lyric quote on the reverse. Originally released on August 31st 1998, this limited edition of ‘Songs for Polarbears’ will be available on Jeepster Recordings for release on November 10th 2023.

    The debut album by Snow Patrol was written and recorded by the three original members: Gary Lightbody, Mark McClelland and Jonny Quinn and also features members of Belle and Sebastian on several tracks.

    Described in 1998 by Melody Maker as “somewhere betwixt the folksome musing of Sebadoh and the laserbeam noiz of lots of excitable bands your mother wouldn’t like”.

    The singles released from the album at the time were:
    • Little Hide
    • One Hundred Things You Should Have Done In Bed
    • Velocity Girl/Absolute Gravity (double A-side)
    • Starfighter Pilot

    Starfighter Pilot was originally recorded for Electric Honey Records under the Stow College project. It was released on CD by Jeepster as both a 3-track EP and a version including remixes by Richard Colburn of Belle and Sebastian, Paul Leonard-Morgan, Cut La Roc and Steve Hitchcock, also distributed on white label vinyl to clubs. Promotional videos were released for all four singles.

    The album was recorded between August 1997 & June 1998 at Chamber Studios in Edinburgh, Scotland with Jamie Watson as producer

    Final Straw (20th Anniversary Edition)

      Celebrating 20 years since the original release, Snow Patrol are reissuing their breakout third studio album, Final Straw; named as such due to the band thinking it was possibly their last album, their “last throw of the dice”. It turned out to be the album that would put them on the map, certified 6 x platinum in the UK and Ireland to date.

      This 20th-anniversary edition is available as 2CD Set and 2LP Gold Vinyl.
      including three previously unreleased tracks from the album sessions, six original album track demos, plus new in depth and insightful liner notes written by Snow Patrol’s lead singer, Gary Lightbody.
