Snow Patrol Debut MV

Snow Patrol Debut Music Video for “Soon” confirms North American tour with Ed Sheeran &Headlining dates throughout the U.K. & Ireland. First Album in seven years Wilderness out now via Republic/Polydor Records.

“….a fantastically ambitious collection of songs, one more direct and intimate than many previous Snow Patrol offerings…“Wildness” signals a triumphant Snow Patrol return.” -Associated Press

This morning, Snow Patrol debut the music video for their song “Soon,” from their album Wildness. Directed by Brett Simon, who has helmed videos for every track on the album, ‘Soon’ is a poignant snapshot of Gary Lightbody and his father, who is suffering from dementia. Lightbody revealed: “Soon’ is about my dad. Three years ago he was diagnosed with dementia. I wanted to write a song that connected us both and let him know I was with him and would be always. The video we made for this (directed by Brett Simon) is me and my dad sitting together watching old home movies. Filming it with him was one of the best days I ever spent with my dad and I’m so grateful he got to share in the day and spend some time in my world. It meant everything to me.” Watch the video for “Soon” here. For more information about how music and technology can improve the lives of the elderly suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s, visit Music & Memory here.

Recently, Snow Patrol have confirmed 8 headlining dates in the UK and Ireland throughout December and January. The band will perform in cities including Dublin, London, and Belfast (full dates below), and tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 8th at 9am Local Time here. Snow Patrol has also confirmed that they will support Ed Sheeran on 24 North American stadium dates, which will kick off at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl on Saturday August 18th. The tour will stop in cities including Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas (full dates below), and tickets for all dates are on sale now and available here.

Snow Patrol’s album Wildness, their first album in seven years, is out now and available for purchase on all formats here. To celebrate the release of Wildness, Snow Patrol debuted new music videos for “A Youth Written In Fire,” “Life and Death,” “Wild Horses,” and “A Dark Switch.” The band has previously released music videos for “Empress” “What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?,” “Life On Earth,” and “Don’t Give In,” and you can watch them all here. Additionally, Ed Sheeran showed his support in an Instagram video here.

Snow Patrol recently returned to “Later… With Jools Holland” where they debuted a live rendition of “Empress,” along with performances of “Life On Earth,” “Heal Me,” and “Chasing Cars.” Snow Patrol also appeared as musical guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 19th and The Late Late Show With James Corden on April 24th and performed “Don’t Give In,” the first single from the album.

Snow Patrol has launched a Spotify playlister website where fans around the world can create their own playlist of Snow Patrol songs throughout the band’s catalogue and share these playlists with a friend. When sharing the playlist, the fan marks his/her location as well as the recipient’s location on a global map. Check it out and create your own playlist at http://playlist.snowpatrol.com
Since their 1998 debut, Songs for Polarbears, Snow Patrol has racked up an impressive number of critical and commercial accolades, including 15 million global album sales, 1+ billion global track streams, five UK Platinum Albums, and are Grammy, BRIT Award and Mercury Music Prize nominated. After their Fallen Empires tour ended in 2012, band members —which also include multi-instrumentalist Johnny McDaid, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, and drummer Jonny Quinn — decided to take a step back from the band, and focus on their own projects. Gary Lightbody continued his work with his Tired Pony side project with members of Belle and Sebastian, R.E.M, Reindeer Section and Fresh Young Fellows and moved to Los Angeles to begin writing songs for movies (including “This Is How You Walk On” for 2017’s Gifted), and doing a number of high-profile co-writes with Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Biffy Clyro, and One Direction. Taking this extended break from Snow Patrol proved to be a source of inspiration, and writing songs that were not pulled directly from his own psyche helped heal what Lightbody considered to be not so much writer’s block as life block.

Isaac Gracie’s Debut Album

Isaac Gracie’s highly anticipated, self-titled debut album is out now via Virgin EMI/Republic Records. 

 

The album was largely produced by Markus Dravs at RAK Studios in London and features eleven tracks, including Gracie’s recent tracks, “Last Words,” “Terrified” and “The Death of You & I.” See the full tracklisting below.

 

Of his debut album, Gracie says, “Over the course of the two years it took to complete this record, I learnt more about myself and about music than I had in the entirety of my prior life. It was the biggest test I’ve ever undertaken and a winding journey that I won’t forget. To now have the record as a physical representation of a heavy and formative time in my life, that can be traced and re-remembered through listening to it, is an awesome and unique reward for the time and effort and love that was spent.”

 

In celebration of the album, Gracie is set to embark on a UK tour throughout April, followed by a European tour throughout May. See the full list of show dates below. Tickets are available now here.

 

23-year-old London-raised singer-songwriter Isaac Gracie has been finding his feet, working out who he is and discovering what he wants since the industry spotlight fell on him. The fuss was caused by a dusty-sounding, careworn home recording of “Last Words” that was uploaded online without expectation and any anticipation of what was to follow. The voice behind it was completely new to the premise of where writing a great song might lead him. Even now he’d tell you that he’s still slowly working it all out, but this debut collection sounds as fully-realized and confident as any of recent memory. Isaac Gracie is a new British voice, poetic in his placement of words and accomplished in their delivery.

Comparing, Contrasting, Cutting, GUINNESS

The Guinness Brewery at St. James’s Gate in Dublin has been brewing beer since its founder, Arthur Guinness, signed his now famous 9,000-year lease on the property on December 31st 1759. The brewery began its life producing ales for Dublin City, it would soon embark on a journey brewing new styles of beer originating in London known as Porter’s and Stout’s. This journey would lead the then small family brewery located on the outskirts of Dublin City to become the largest Stout brewery in the world. Along the 258-year journey that Guinness has undertaken it has been frequently enjoyed at the table alongside a well paired dish.

 

The secret of a good pairing lies in the three C’s, Comparing, Contrasting and Cutting.

 

We will now use Guinness Draught Stout as an example of how to Compare and Contrast the same beer with two different dishes, and examine how the presence of one can interact with the flavor of the other.

 

When Comparing we are required to find foods with similar flavor and intensity to that of the beer. These flavors will then compliment and resonate with each other.

 

For our first pairing, we use Guinness Draught Stout, found in new throw-back cans featuring the Kinkajou, a marketing creation from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s by legendary artist John Gilory. Distinctively dark with a rich creamy head, coffee and malty, and the perfect balance of bitter, sweet and roast characters. These flavors are the product of using roasted barley in our brewing and also give Guinness Draught Stout it’s iconic ruby red color. When the barley is roasted at 466 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 and 1Ž2 hours it undergoes a change called the Maillard reaction, a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars that also gives browned food its distinctive flavor. The flavors from the roasted barley used in Guinness Draught Stout balance wonderfully with the similar rich roasted flavors of an Applewood Smoked Bacon Sandwich with each sip of stout harmonizing with every bite of sandwich until both glass and plate are empty.

 

GUINNESS DRAUGHT & APPLEWOOD SMOKED BACON SANDWICH

 

After looking at Comparing let us now review Contrasting Guinness Draught Stout with a different dish. As we know Stout tastes of coffee and bitter flavors, let us use those to contrast against and accentuate the sweet and creamy deliciousness of a warm Apple and Pear Tart nestled under a generous scoop of Vanilla Gelato. This pairing is very similar to having your cup of coffee with a sweet pastry or confection.

 

GUINNESS DRAUGHT & APPLE AND PEAR TART

 

Finally let’s discuss Cutting. We will utilize Guinness Blonde American Lager as our example for Cutting. Guinness Blonde American Lager, light and hoppy with floral and citrus notes and a long malt biscuit finish. This crisp and refreshing lager has a lively mouthfeel provided by its ample carbonation, this carbonation is ideal for “Cutting” through creamy and juicy dishes and cleansing the palate after each bite. While enjoying a burger at a BBQ or creamy ham and cheese croquettes using this pairing technique, Cutting scrubs the palate and resets your taste buds after each sip.

 

BLONDE AMERICAN LAGER & HAM & CHEDDAR CHEESE CROQUETTES

 

We hope you enjoy using the 3 C’s for your future beer and food pairing adventures! Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the Brewer’s at Guinness and always remember to Drink Responsibly.

 

Eoghain Clavin, Guinness Brewery Ambassador, Pacific Region U.S.

Brits x Eyes Health Check

Over 18 Million Brits Do Not Consider Eyes As Part of Their Routine Health Check :

New research released by Vision Express to mark World Glaucoma Week reveals over a third of Brits (35%) do not consider having an eye test as part of a routine body ‘MOT’ health check. Worryingly, 1 out of 5 people would choose sight as their least valued sense, with over 1 in 12 Brits (8%) admitting that they have never had their eyes tested.

 

Research shows that 18-24 year olds are the least likely to get their eyes tested, with two in five (40%) saying they do not get them tested at all. This compares to only a quarter (25%) of 66-70 year olds. 1 in 3 Brits who don’t consider eyes as part of their health MOT check only get their eyes tested when they are advised by a doctor and almost a fifth (19%) stated that an eye test is not important.

 

Even if you don’t think you’ve got any problems with your eyes, you should still get them tested every two years. The research also reveals that 3.6 million Brits (7%) had their eyes tested as long as over six years ago.

 

As World Glaucoma Week puts the condition at the top of the health agenda, research conducted by the National Eye Health Research Centre (NERC) unveils a worrying landscape for glaucoma over the next 30 years. It is estimated that the condition may affect 3.2million in the UK in 2050, but unless detection rates are improved, only 1.28million will have been diagnosed and be receiving the treatments they urgently need.

Global streaming star Aquilo today release their new single “Silent Movies”. The new single follows 2017’s “I Could Fight On A Wall” and “Thin” from ii (Side A), the first half of their highly-anticipated second album. Aquilo also announce today that ii will be released in totality on May 4th and is available to preorder in CD and vinyl formats.

   

In November 2017, Aquilo made the bold decision to split their second album into two parts, releasing the first five-tracks of ii as the ii (Side A) EP. Aquilo are truly stars of the streaming age, with their tracks consistently amassing over a million streams. ii continues Aquilo’s progression from bedroom-based laptop producers to constant, inimitable innovators, and with two sold out London shows under their belts and a sixteen-date European tour to come, Aquilo are undoubtedly set for a massive 2018.

 

Hailing from the UK Lake District, Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher first introduced themselves as Aquilo in 2014 with their larger than life cinematic sound, and have since released three EPs and debut album “Silhouettes”, produced by highly regarded Icelandic producer Ólafur Arnalds and the ever brilliant SOHN. With tracks “Silhouette”, “Sorry”, “You There”, “Losing You” and “Never Hurt Again” gaining well over 110 million plays on Spotify alone. Aquilomade their U.S. television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers in March 2017.

BUY ‘AURA’

 

PMR-signed songwriter and producer SG Lewis today shares his new single ‘Aura’. The single is taken from his expansive new project: a three-part album due to roll out over the coming year. ‘Aura’ features rising UK songwriter J Warner and is available to buy and stream now on all partners.

“Everything I do stems from club culture,” says SG Lewis of the idea behind his upcoming three-part project. “Dusk, Dark, Dawn is about taking the intentions of that music – all of those feelings, those experiences I had from the age of 17 to 19 – and placing them outside of the context of a club. Those memories of being a young person and having my mind completely blown.”

Presented over three phases, ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ maps the trajectory of one night out over the course of an album, matching genres and tempos different stages of that night, beginning at sun-down, both inside and outside the club. In the first phase ‘Dusk’, SG Lewis plays with disco, west coast hip-hop and 80’s electro references to start the story. “Disco has always had the association of the start of a night for me. I spent a lot a time as a resident DJ in clubs and disco was always that magnetic genre, always brought people onto the dancefloor.” Lead single ‘Aura’ blends SG’s signature warm, uptempo house with disco inflections. “There’s an undeniable beauty to this part of the night. The apprehension, excitement… ‘Dusk’ is the warm-up for the heavier, darker things to come.”

SG Lewis will tour a four-date run across the UK in April, playing in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and London. Full details follow.

LEWIS CAPALDI PREMIERES “FADE (LIVE)” VIDEO TODAY

DEBUT EP BLOOM OUT NOW ON CAPITOL RECORDS ­­

Capaldi To Join Milky Chance On January 2018 North American Tour

Scottish artist Lewis Capaldi premieres the video for “Fade (Live)” today- watch it HERE.  The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet and the track is from Capaldi’s debut EP Bloom out now on Capitol Records and available for download and streaming HERE.   Capaldi co-wrote “Fade” with GRAMMY award winner Malay (Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, Zayn Malik), who also produced it.

“Fade is probably the proudest I’ve ever been about a song I’ve written, it came together so naturally over the course of two days in New York and the fact that I got to write it and have it produced by Malay who’s someone I’ve been a big fan of for a long time was such an honour,” says Capaldi. We filmed the live video for the track in a studio in London a month or so ago and I’m still so pleased with how it turned out, visuals were never really something I considered when I started making music but over the last year it’s something I’ve been becoming so much more interested in! The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet who’s fucking amazing, I’m still not really comfortable being in front of a camera but she was great in helping me feel a bit more at ease with everything. I honestly think it looks class, she smashed it!”

“Fade” racked up over one million streams in the first week alone and is now approaching four million streams.  Capaldi’s previous track “Lost On You,” was included in Spotify’s New Music Friday in over 20 countries, while his debut “Bruises,” held the No. 1 spot on the playlist and has amassed over 35 million total streams globally.  A stripped-down ballad that looks back on a failed relationship, “Bruises” showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy.

Hailing from the small town of Bathgate, outside of Glasgow, Capaldi sold out two headlining shows at Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and embarked on his first UK headling tour, which sold out in minutes, before any of his music was officially released. He will tour Europe this fall with Rag’n’Bone Man, followed by his second UK sold out headlining tour in December.  Capaldi will also tour the U.S. and Canada with Milky Chance in January. See below for all tour dates.

The track-listing for the Bloom EP is as follows:

1 Fade

2 Bruises

3 Mercy

4 Lost On You
