The Script Dive Into Fall with North American Tour
Irish rockers The Script have announced that they will head back to North America for a headlining tour that will span about a month later this year to support their upcoming third album.
The tour will kick off October 9 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, and is scheduled to run until November 10 when the band plays the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, N.J. In between, the band will hit cities including Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta, Toronto and Boston.
The upcoming album, appropriately titled #3, will hit stores on October 9 as well, and the first single “Hall of Fame,” will be released soon. That track features Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am, and guitarist Mark Sheehan described the track in a press release.
“We wanted to capture as much emotion in the track’s sound as there is in the lyrics, which are definitely some of the most positive and upbeat we’ve ever written,” he said in the statement.
Frontman Danny O’Donoghue added a little of how the song became a duet with will.i.am.
“We thought it might make a great duet but we wanted to do it line by line, true duet style,” O’Donoghue said. It took several months, a headlock and a taxi cab to get Will on the song!”
O’Donoghue met will.i.am when they were both judges on the BBC’s inaugural season of “The Voice UK” in December 2011. They were joined as judges by Jessie J and Tom Jones.
#3 follows the band’s 2010 sophomore album, Science & Faith, which peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Following of that album, the band performed a series of sold-out U.S. tour dates in the fall of last year, but they haven’t been back to this side of the Atlantic since that time.
