Snow Patrol Part Company With Bassist
Added on 18th March 2005

A statement has been released announcing that Snow Patrol have split with their bassist of six years Mark McClelland – citing the pressures of their new found work load as the reason for the split. The statement, which appeared on the band’s website on March 16th, read:
‘Snow Patrol have parted company with bass player Mark McClelland. Following a life-changing year in 2004, Snow Patrol found themselves under a whole set of new and unexpected pressures. These pressures have unfortunately taken their toll on working relationships within the band, and it was felt that Snow Patrol could not move forward with Mark as a member.
Coming to this decision was the hardest thing the remaining band members have ever faced, it was reached with much regret. The band have not appointed a new member, and are currently in rural Ireland writing the follow up to ‘Final Straw’.’
Mark McClelland has since been replaced by Paul Wilson (previously of Terra Diablo).
