Snow Patrol has set an Oct. 28 U.S. release date for its fifth album, "A Hundred Million Suns." First single "Take Back the City" arrives Oct. 13 in the U.K., in tandem with a video shot by Alex Courtes.

The band spents several months recording at Grouse Lodge in Ireland and also logged time at Berlin's Hansa Studios, where such famed albums as U2's "Achtung Baby" and David Bowie's "Low," "Lodger" and "Heroes" were tracked.

"Musically, lyrically and sonically the best record we've made," frontman Gary Lightbody says of the set, produced by longtime collaborator Garret "Jacknife" Lee.

"A Hundred Million Suns" is the follow-up to 2006's "Eyes Open," which has sold 1.2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
