The eagerly-awaited Eyes Open marked Snow Patrol’s fourth album release, and their biggest hit to date. Packed full of anthemic tracks like ‘Chasing Cars’, ‘You’re All I Have’ and ‘Open Your Eyes’, it became the best- selling UK album of 2006 as well as a huge hit across the pond.
After Eyes Open received rave reviews on this side of the Atlantic, the inclusion of ‘Chasing Cars’ on the season finale of medical drama Grey’s Anatomy finally brought Snow Patrol to a wider, and enthusiastic, American audience. Signalling the band’s evolution into international superstars, the album went platinum in countries right across the globe, including the States, and sold more than 2 million copies in the UK alone.
