The indie-pop trio known for their joyful anthems
Formed in London in 2005, Scouting For Girls consists of three childhood friends – lead vocalist and guitarist Roy Stride, drummer Peter Ellard and bass guitarist Greg Churchouse. Choosing their name as a play on the title of a 1908 Scouts’ manual, they began making music together from the age of 15 and by the time they went to university had already built up a loyal fan base.
Despite having plenty of recorded material, Scouting For Girls had trouble finding a label. That changed when Nick Raphael of Epic Records heard their demo and recognised the star potential. After being signed the three-piece went straight into the studio with veteran producer Andy Green (KT Tunstall, Keane, The Feeling) and made the EP It's Not About You, which came out in June 2007.
Their self-titled debut was unveiled that September and sat at No.1 on the UK albums chart for two weeks, spawning the hit singles Elvis Ain't Dead and She's So Lovely. This was followed by a sell-out 2007 UK tour, with Scouting For Girls heading across Europe as well as to the US and Japan in 2008.
The band released their follow-up, Everybody Wants To Be On TV, in 2010. The first single, This Ain't A Love Song, went straight to No. 1 in the UK. The album was another big success, climbing to No.2 in the UK.
Scouting For Girls have been nominated for many awards during their career, including four BRITs and an Ivor Novello between 2009 and 2011.
Their third album, The Light Between Us, arrived in 2012 and peaked at No.10 on the UK albums chart, followed by 2015’s Still Thinking About You and 2019’s The Trouble With Boys.
On 27 November 2020, Scouting For Girls released the festive single Xmas In The ’80s and announced details about their sixth studio album Easy Cover. Due out on 26 March 2021 and playing off their hero Phil Collins’ Easy Lover, it’s a fun re-imagining of some of the biggest songs from the ’80s. In addition, the band confirmed a massive UK tour in autumn 2021.
“Touring is our very favourite aspect of being in this band and to go out longer and harder than ever is a dream come true,” said Stride. “We’re going to put 2020 behind us and put two years of pent-up energy into every night of this tour – we can’t wait to give people the most fun night out of 2021!”
Scouting For Girls announced a huge UK tour in support of their sixth album Easy Cover from 30 September – 23 November 2021.
The longest tour in the history of the band, among the many UK towns and cities Scouting For Girls will visit are the following:
- Bury St Edmunds
Tickets for Scouting For Girls tour dates go on sale from 09:00 on Friday 4 December 2020.
