Nathan Connolly’s solo tour will be travelling across the UK and Ireland this summer. The Snow Patrol guitarist will be playing in five dates in June including Glasgow’s King Tuts and in his hometown Belfast’s Limelight 2.
Prior to these dates Nathan Connolly has released his debut album on April 21s, titled The Strange Order Of Things. The album includes some featured artists such as Irish artist Ailbhe Redd, and Stephen Leacock (General Fiasco). Single Fires was released earlier this year and features Simon Neil of BIffy Clyro.
Nathan Connolly has been part of Snow Patrol since 2002. Over these years the band had a number of successes including selling seventeen million albums, having five UK platinum albums and having been nominated for a number of awards such as a Grammy award and an Ivor Novello award.
The success of Connolly’s previous roles in bands like Snow Patrol and Little Matador, which he founded, give us a sense of how successful he could be on his own.
Connolly, drummer Paul ‘Binzer’ Brennan, bassist Gavin Fox, and guitarists Troy Stewart and Dave Magee established Little Matador in 2013. The next year, they issued their self-titled album.
According to Connolly, his solo album is “trying to understand, make sense and work through events that have led to who I am now: heartache, regret, emotional cost and fatherhood”
