Hard-working Irish pop rock trio

Dublin’s The Script offer a bridge between Ireland’s rich musical past and contemporary pop successes. The trio’s soulful radio-ready pop owes as much to Van Morrison and U2 as it does to The Coronas, Snow Patrol and Ronan Keating.

The band was formed in Dublin by Danny O’Donaghue (vocals) and Mark Sheehan (guitar) after their boyband Mytown split in 2000. The duo headed out to LA to gain experience as producers but eventually headed back to Dublin and linked up with drummer Glen Power to form The Script.

First single We Cry got things off to a promising start, quickly followed by The Script’s 2008 self-titled debut album. The Script landed at No.1 in both the UK and Ireland and yielded three Top 10 hits in the band’s home country. A host of high-profile support slots followed, including Take That, U2 and Paul McCartney.

The Script’s second album, Science & Faith, repeated the double No.1 feat on release in 2010. It also gave the band their first UK No.1 single (For The First Time) and saw their fanbase swell further as they made inroads both in the US and Australia. Their Irish tour sold out in just 40 minutes. Their massive show at Dublin’s Aviva stadium was later released as the concert film Homecoming.

O’Donoghue became a household name in 2012 with a stint as a judge on the BBC talent show, The Voice. Fellow judge guest starred on their third album, #3, which proved to be another international success for the trio. Another huge, sold-out tour followed, as well as a US jaunt alongside OneRepublic.

No Sound Without Silence continued The Script’s remarkable run of hit albums, kicking off yet another massive tour that took the band all over the globe. However, a long run of intensive touring took its toll and the band went on hiatus in late 2015 while O’Donoghue recovered from throat surgery.

The Script returned in 2017 with a brand-new album Freedom Child. It became their third to top the album charts in both the UK and Scotland. It was followed two years later by the relatively moodier but still effortlessly catchy Sunsets & Full Moons. True to form, the band embarked on yet another hugely successful tour.

In 2021, The Script announced a greatest hits album called Tales From The Script, due for release in October 2021. To support the album, the band also announced a huge European tour with a string of UK dates in May and June 2022.
