The Script Gaining Momentum in US

Burning Up The Charts With "The Man Who Can't Be Moved"

Already 2x Platinum in UK And 5x Platinum in Ireland

New Tour With Parachute & Dates With Paul McCartney

The Script may have been last year's biggest breakout band in the UK and Ireland, but now they are poised to be the next big thing in the US. Danny O'Donoghue (keys and vocals), Mark Sheehan (guitar), and Glen Power (drums) make up the Irish trio who boast a new brand of Celtic Soul -- blending hip hop lyrical flow with pop melodies, R&B production with anthemic rock dynamics, and classic song construction with gritty contemporary narratives. The Script sold more copies of their first album than any other debut group in the UK in 2008. Their single "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" has become a global phenomenon with top five slots in thirteen countries.

The Script released their self-titled album in the US on March 17th of this year and have started burning up the charts with "The Man Who Can't Be Moved." With songs featured across several major TV campaigns, a spot in VH1's "You Oughta Know" platform and an upcoming headlining US tour, it's safe to say that these guys are headed in the right direction.

Before heading out on their own tour with Parachute on July 30th, the band has received the honor of opening up for Sir Paul McCartney as the first artist to ever perform at Citifield in New York. Stay up-to-date with the band at and check out their video for “The Man Who Can't Be Moved.”

Listen to their album here (I have not previewed the entire album and it does have and "Explicit" label - so be forewarned).
