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 will be available as 2CD Set and 2LP Gold Vinyl.
includes 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.

The 2CD additionally includes the 11 Final Straw tracks performed for their DVD concert film, Live at Somerset House,
in 2004.

Snow Patrol are currently in the studio recording their eighth studio album, due for release in Q4 (not yet announced). 

Released: April 2023 (CD) / August 2023 (Vinyl)
Cat: 5516056
Label: UMR/ Polydor
