It’s been a rags to riches glory ride, an emotional rollercoaster, an all action, all-star blockbuster. Three young Dubliners took on the world, with music fashioned from the emotional detritus of their own hard lives raised up by a love of pop, rock, hip hop and soul. In two years they’ve notched up a handful of hit singles around the world, including “We Cry”, “Breakeven” and “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”. Their 2008 self-titled debut album, The Script, went to number one in the UK and Ireland, and is now approaching 2 million sales worldwide. They’ve played stadium shows with music heroes U2, Take That and Sir Paul McCartney, and to cap it all, “Breakeven” – which has already sold over 1.7 million downloads in the U.S. alone – rewrote history here in America on Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart to take the # 1 spot where the song completed a record-setting 36-week rise to the summit.
"It's a little bit shocking to us as new band, playing to these mass audiences," Mark Sheehan notes. "..And we feel we have to touch everybody..." The Script are like this all the time, highly passionate, sincere and poetically articulate. Get ready for the return of The Script as they hit the main stage at Radio City Music Hall on October 9! There are going to be more twists in this tale before it is done.
