Scouting For Girls are playing The Royal Theatre Castlebar this Saturday night to celebrate the release of their new album Everybody Wants To Be On TV. With hit songs including ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘I Wish I Was James Bond’, and ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’, among others, Scouting for Girls is a show not to be missed and with Castlebar just an hour away with overnight specials in both the on site hotels why not make a weekend of it in Castlebar. In 2008 Scouting For Girls became the biggest selling new band of the year in the UK. Having toiled for 10 years unsigned, the three boys next door sold more than 900,000 records of their eponymous number one debut album, and were nominated for three Brit Awards (British Breakthrough Act, British Single (’Heartbeat’ ), and British Live Act, to become the UK’s most successful new pop band.
Fronted by the exuberant showman Roy Stride, Scouting For Girls quickly became renowned for their contagious piano-led pop songs (’She’s So Lovely’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘It’s Not About You’, ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ ), that connected with a huge audience and reaped multiple sold-out tours. Those live shows grew as Scouting For Girls’ mania gripped, buoyed on by the huge radio support, the venues were upsized across the country and sold-out just as quickly. By the end of 2008, they had performed to hundreds of thousands of fans, and outsold bands twice their size in the live arena. Scouting for Girls recently had a UK number one with their new single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’.
