The Script writes new chapter on the road
Irish alt-rockers The Script will tackle their first full-blown US headlining tour this summer as the band continues to support its self-titled debut album from last year.
The trio kicks off the American outing just a few days after opening for for their self-avowed heroes, U2, on the third night of the legendary rockers' engagement in Dublin, where both bands hail from. After that, The Script will head overseas, where the group opens a 14-city headlining tour July 30 in Seattle. Dates are below.
The band's self-titled debut album, which hit stores last summer, got a boost when the set's second single, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," was used heavily by the CBS show "Ghost Whisperer" during its fourth season, which began airing last fall. The song peaked at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, and hit No. 2 on the UK chart, while the album itself spent 20 weeks in the Irish Top 10.
"I think nobody can put the finger on exactly who we are," frontman Marc Sheehan recently told SoundSpike. "That is a great thing for today's appetite. Everybody kind of wants a little bit of something from every band. We tried to make an album that was as versatile as possible. Hopefully, people would play it from top to bottom, rather than skip through it. That was kind of the goal."
Several songs and videos from the band's debut are currently streaming at The Script's official website.
