Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody is helping out lifelong friend CHARLIE CLARK by booking his new band OUR LUNAR ACTIVITIES as a support act. The Scottish rockers have been friends since they were both teenagers - Lightbody stuck by Clark ever since Astrid were signed to Fantastic Plastic records when he was just 17 years old. And now Lightbody has offered Our Lunar Activities four support slots on Snow Patrol's upcoming tour. Clark says, "We're doing four out of six of them, definitely Glasgow and Manchester and another two nights in November and December (06). "Things have been picking up for the band and we've completed the video for our first song. "Gary has been a rock - the one man I could rely on. We've seen one another through rough patches but at the start of the year he gave me the confidence to get back to it." Lightbody and Clark are also both members of Scottish supergroup REINDEER SECTION.
