Snow Patrol go dance?

Snow Patrol are set to include a ''heavy dose of electronica'' on their next album.
Great deals on musical instruments

Snow Patrol are recording a dance music influenced album.

The Northern Irish indie band are about to start work on their sixth album and keyboardist Tom Simpson said he sees the band moving away from their established, guitar led, roots with the record.

Tom told website spinnermusic.co.uk: "Well, I don't know about techno but certainly it'll have an element of electronica about it.

"I've been buying some really interesting equipment which I hope will get used on the new record. There will be a heavy dose of electronica."

The band's singer Gary Lightbody has previously said he wants the band - whose 2006 effort 'Eyes Open' became the biggest selling album in the UK of that year - to make it into the top tier of most successful UK bands around today, with their next album.

He said: "I see U2 in a class of their own, Coldplay in the next tier down and us and a ton of bands in the tier below them.

"I don't see Oasis as equals, for example. We need 10 or 15 more songs in the national consciousness for that to happen."

Snow Patrol - which also includes Gary Lightbody, Jonny Quinn, Nathan Connolly and Paul Wilson - have previously said they want to release their next album sometime 2011.
