The Script will play an intimate show at the Millennium Forum, Derry on 22nd August 2017.
After almost 3 years since their last release, The Script returned last Friday with their brand new single Rain, out through Columbia Records. Rain was immediately added to playlists up and down the country and stormed straight into the Top 10 on iTunes – it was impossible to miss that The Script were back! Today the Irish three-piece announce more news – their fifth album Freedom Child will be released on 1st September and they will embark on an intimate tour around the UK and Ireland.
Freedom Child sees the band presenting a collection of urgent, timely, future-facing anthems that speak of both real-life events and real-time sonic adventurism. The album was recorded between London and Los Angeles and for the first time, the band chose to work with some outside writers and producers including Toby Gad and Nasri Atweh. The follow up to 2014’s No Sound Without Silence is available to pre-order now.
To coincide with the release of Freedom Child, The Script, who are no strangers to sold out arenas and stadiums, will get up close and personal with their loyal fan base at intimate shows around the country. The tour kicks off at The National Stadium in their hometown of Dublin on 21st August followed by a show at The Millennium Forum in Derry on 22nd August and will wrap at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 1st September.
Rain is picking up a phenomenal amount of support around the world. The single stormed straight into the Top 10 on iTunes and was added immediately to the Capital A List, Heart A List and Radio 2 B List. The Script also joined Nick Grimshaw on his Radio 1 Breakfast show and Rain is the Single of the Week on Radio 2. It’s also been added to over 300 playlists on Spotify and the video, which launched on Friday, has already been viewed over 1.6 million times.
