Meet The Script: Danny O’Donoghue (vocals, piano), Mark Sheehan (vocals, guitar), Glen Power (vocals, drums). 3 Irish men who are as direct – as impassioned – as their songs.
The onetime studio whizzes who stepped up to form a band, then, on their last album, stepped front and centre. It was called #3, it featured the trio on the artwork, and did exactly what that no-nonsense cover and title intended.
“The last album was us stepping out in to the light,” affirms Danny, as impressive a speaker as he is a frontman, but now with a top-spin of telegenic confidence, courtesy of his 2 seasons judging on The Voice on BBC1. “We’d been the faceless band before that. We’d had 2 albums that were enormously successful but there was a disconnect – people might know the song but they wouldn’t know the band, or the name of the band.”
But now they’re back after their #3 world tour in 2013 tour which spanned 11 months and included shows throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. And after selling 20 million records, with 5 platinum US singles (2 of which are triple platinum). The Script’s fourth album, “No Sound Without Silence”, is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and channelling the momentum of their last, rocket-powered campaign. After finishing touring #3 at the end of last year, took a scant couple of weeks off, then quickly re-entered their studios in London and Dublin.
Their first single, the ultra-catchy “Superheroes”, was warmly received, as expected:
