It’s been a busy week for Gary Lightbody and Snow Patrol. After playing a sold-out show in Belfast’s SSE Arena, they announed a gig in Malahide Castle next summer. And if that wasn’t enough, him and his fellow band mates followed that by playing a sold-out show in the 3Arena.

And last night he appeared on The Late Late Show for an in-depth discussion with Ryan Tubridy about the band’s seven-year absence and battling some of his own demons. He also treated fans to an acoustic version of Snow Patrols new single. Check out ‘What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?’ here:

He also revealed the story behind ‘Run’. And it’s not exactly rock n’ roll. Have a listen:

Snow Patrol’s first album in seven years, ‘Wildness’, was released back in May.
