Fallen Empires is the sixth studio album by Snow Patrol. The album was released on 11 November 2011 worldwide, and on 10 January 2012 in North America.
When asked about the writing process for the album, Gary Lightbody commented by saying "It's the longest album we've ever made by far but also the best. We took our time and I also had some bouts of writer's block. It's the first time it's happened for such a long time. I've had days when I haven't been able to write. Since 2009 I've gone through three writer's blocks but I'm glad because the results are great afterwards. They probably made me write better songs." Snow Patrol plans to go on a "Fallen Empires tour" in 2012 with the first date being at the O2 in Dublin. with an expanded UK and worldwide tour to be announced shortly. The song "New York" can be heard at the end of episode 158 (Season 8 Episode 10) of Grey's Anatomy.
