Snow Patrol took acoustic guitars to their local pub this week to unveil their new compilation album Up to Now.

Gary Lightbody and Nathan Connolly left the big guitar amps at home to perform an intimate acoustic set in the King's Head, north London.

The duo opened with Crack The Shutters before playing songs such as Shut Your Eyes and new single Just Say Yes.

Snow Patrol's best known hits Run and Chasing Cars were also included in the setlist.

Commenting on their new compilation, Lightbody said: "Our record company wanted to call it Greatest Hits but one of our songs went in at Number 89 and another couple were outside the Top 100."

The acoustic set came just weeks before the start of the band's UK tour, which commences in Brighton on November 18th.

Snow Patrol will then call at cities such as Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and Bristol before heading over to Ireland.
