Mark Sheehan of The Script likes to box before his concerts. The KVJ Show’s Kevin and Jason volunteered to be his punching bags before the show in West Palm Beach, and you can watch the result below:
Irish rock band The Script talk about recording their new album, ‘No Sound Without Silence,’ on their tour bus while they were on the road in the US.
The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue Admits ‘We Can’t Count On Previous Success’ Ahead Of New Album
Believe it or not, it’s already been two years since the last musical offering from The Script. It was in 2012 that the group, who signed their first major deal nine years ago, claimed their first No1 single with ‘Hall Of Fame’ and landed a third straight platinum-selling album.
Now they’re gearing up for the release of their fourth record, and are still firing on all cylinders. With an iTunes Festival show also in the calendar alongside a huge homecoming gig at Dublin Castle, we had a word with frontman Danny O’Donoghue to see how everything’s coming along…
Congratulations on ‘Superheroes’, it seems to be going down a treat. Why did you pick it as the first single?
“I think it sounds like a great radio song. It’s got the excitement, the Irish melodies in the verses, and then it’s got the really positive message. The Script have a history of releasing, you know, the ballads or the heartbroken records but over the last couple of years we’ve enjoyed success that’s really positive. As soon as we wrote Superheroes against the backdrop of everything else… It’s a really positive song and it seemed like the logical choice.”
What’s it like for you now when you bring out new music – do you still get nervous?
“I think the stakes get higher. We’ve had an amazing three albums so far; we’re living the life right now. I might be jetlagged but we get to travel the world and, in my opinion, have the coolest job! We get nervous because we want this to continue.”
The new album’s out soon as well. What have you got up your sleeve with this one?
“We probably wrote about 60 songs and got down to 11. That’s the first time we’ve ever done that as a band, we’ve only ever wrote the songs that the album needed. So the album itself is called No Sound Without Silence… In order to say something interesting, you have to have the silence and the concentration to think about what you want to say. I think we’re about to really hit our stride live and in the studio, production-wise. I think you get the perfect representation of us as a band right now.”
You’ve got an amazing track record in terms of charts and sales. Do you still feel the pressure to live up to it?
“As a band we have had success in the past but you can’t count on that. With the industry and the way it moves… We were very lucky to get to a second album, then to get to a third album. Considering the bands that were around us at the beginning that don’t seem to be around anymore – Scouting For Girls, Keane – we get very nervous. We have to thank our fans for that, for keeping us making music.”

The Script are racing back to Australia to perform. The Irish band will play at Guineas Day during Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival in October to play music from their forthcoming album, No Sound Without Silence.
“Our Australian fans have been behind us from the very beginning,” frontman Danny O’ Donoghue said. “We can’t wait to come back and see everyone again in one of our favourite countries.”
The Script have sold over 20 million records worldwide and their last No.1 hit, Hall of Fame, sold over five million copies. No Sound Without Silence will be their fourth album and is released on September 19 through Sony Music Australia.
The Script will perform at Guineas Day at the Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne on October 11.
