Irish band The Script will be performing for the first time ever in South Africa on 24th June at the Coca-Cola Dome Johannesburg and 26th June at Grand Arena, GrandWest Cape Town.

It’s been a rags to riches glory ride, an emotional rollercoaster, an all action, all star blockbuster. Three young Dubliners took on the world with music fashioned from the emotional detritus of their own lives raised up by love of pop, rock, hip hop and soul. In two years they notched up a handful of hit singles including ‘We Cry’, ‘Breakeven’ and ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’. Their 2008 debut album ‘The Script’ went to number one in the UK and Ireland and has sold over 2 million sales world-wide.

Highly passionate, sincere and poetically articulate The Script have fielded numerous requests to write for other artists preferring instead to focus on each other. Having caught the eye of Paul McCartney who personally asked The Script to support him on a series of his American stadium shows. They recently won Best Live Performance at the Meteor Awards (beating their mentors U2) who they have also supported on their stadium shows.

The Script The new album out September 13th read more

Dubliners Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power – otherwise known as The Script – are back with the follow up to 2008’s 1.8 million selling self-titled global smash of a debut.

An addictive blend of hip hop rhythms, flowing melodies, sparkling hooks and poignant, story-spinning lyrics, with Danny’s mellifluous soulful vocals riding high over huge, anthemic choruses, ‘Science & Faith’ is far from a difficult second album.

When writing, the London based trio found that weighty, emotion-packed mini-epics came thick and fast. There’s ‘Exit Wounds’, which documents the damage relationships can wreak and ‘You Won’t Feel A Thing’, about suffering all the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune to protect your most loved ones.

Other highlights include first single ‘For The First Time’ – released September 5th and ‘Nothing’, its subject matter a drunken, broken hearted phone call to a lost love (“We’ve all been there,” as Danny says). Then there’s ‘If You Ever Come Back’ about always leaving the door open for the possible return of a loved one and the title track, ‘Science & Faith’, which takes on the primacy of love in the universal equation.

“With all of these subjects, we’re always trying to attack at a level where it’s optimistic,” insists Danny. “We’re dealing with complex emotions in the simplest of ways, that’s what we battle with in these songs.”

“On first listen, the subject matter might sound bleak,” adds Mark. “But I think being Irish there is this undertone of hope all the time. It’s about having coping skills to get over things. With Irish people, no matter how bad things get, you always pick yourself up and carry on.”

Featuring a handful of hit singles, including ‘We Cry’, ‘Breakeven’ and ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’, 2008’s ‘The Script’, went straight to Number One in the UK and Ireland and lead to the trio being personally asked by Paul McCartney to support him at a number of US stadium shows. Expect ‘Science & Faith’ to make an equally impressive impact.

The Script is Danny O’Donoghue (vocals/keys), Mark Sheehan (guitar) and Glen Power (drums).
