Nathan Connolly’s debut solo album, The Strange Order Of Things, is out today! Debut single ‘Fires’ featuring Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil, was released last month.

Nathan has been the guitarist with the acclaimed Northern Irish rock band Snow Patrol since 2002. Since then, they have gone on to sell 17 million albums, headline festivals, achieve five UK platinum albums, an Ivor Novello award and Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations. In 2013, Connolly founded Little Matador with drummer Paul ‘Binzer’ Brennan, bassist Gavin Fox and guitarists Troy Stewart and Dave Magee. They released their self-titled album the following year.

Connolly describes his solo album as “trying to understand, make sense and work through events that have led to who I am now: heartache, regret, emotional cost and fatherhood”.

Connolly has announced news of a UK and Ireland tour. The five dates in mid-June include London, Glasgow and a hometown show in Belfast’s Limelight 2.

Tour dates:

Tuesday 13th June Glasgow – King Tut’s

Wednesday 14th June Manchester – Deaf Institute

Thursday 15th June London – Colours

Saturday 17th June Dublin – Whelan’s

Sunday 18th June Belfast – Limelight 2
