The three-man group, which has been called ‘Ireland’s biggest band since U2,’ announced their forthcoming plans in an exclusive Google Hangout, hosted in London and joined by thousands of fans from around the world.
The Script’s fourth album, No Sound Without Silence, picks up where their acclaimed 2012 album, #3 left off, a riveting effort which flaunted the single “Hall Of Fame,” among other songs, a globally-embraced #1 single with over 5 million sales, 133 million Youtube views, and over 100 million Spotify plays.”
The group concluded a hugely successful worldwide touring cycle on behalf of the album late in 2013, quickly re-entering the studio to work on their highly anticipated fourth album, with the new single “Superheroes,” emerging as one of the first songs written. Inspired by one of their many sold out stadium shows in the U.S., the entire album captures the band’s larger-than-life enthusiasm for their craft.
Among other songs on their new album are “No Good In Goodbye,” “The Energy Never Dies,” and “Man On A Wire,” all of which the band briefly previewed during their Google get-together. “This album is all about trying to bottle that energy when we come off stage,” says front-man, singer/songwriter Danny O’ Donoghue, “as well as that contemplative space between notes.”
The Script – Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan, and Glen Plower – released their eponymous debut album in 2008, and achieved hard-earned, worldwide success. The single “Breakeven,” went to #1 on the US charts after a record-setting, near-year-long ascent, and the album went on to double-platinum sales. It was followed by Science and Faith in 2010, which debuted at #1 in the UK and Ireland. Their much-heralded #3 world tour spanned 11 months, and saw them play sold out arena shows in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. The Script has sold more than 20 million records, with all 3 offerings achieving multi-platinum status throughout the world.
The pseudo-video for “Superheroes” will be released on Vevo and youtube today, with the official video for the album’s first single to be unveiled in early August. smarturl.it/superheroespseudo
