Fallen Empires is the sixth studio album from British alt-rock outfit Snow Patrol. Following the success of hit singles such as "Chasing Cars" -- which spent 106 weeks in the U.K. charts -- lead singer Gary Lightbody suffered bouts of writer's block while penning this record; it did, however, spawn pop gems "I'll Never Let Go" and first single "Called Out in the Dark." The band purposely pushes its boundaries here, involving influences from R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, and vocal contributions from American folksinger Lissie.
