The Script's humble comparison
The Script find comparisons with fellow Irish band U2 "humbling".
The 'Breakeven' hitmakers - whose self-titled debut LP achieved huge success in the UK and US -are flattered by comparisons with the iconic group, but insist there are few similarities between them.
Guitarist Mark Sheehan said: "As humbling as it is, how can anybody say that? The fact that we are Irish and carry instruments is the reason why we are compared with U2. I guess you could say we are the biggest band in Ireland to sell records generally since The Corrs or The Cranberries."
The rocker also revealed new album 'Science and Faith' - which is due for release in September - isn't of a political or religious nature as its title would suggest, and instead, is more of a "continuation" of the band's previous work.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post newspaper, Mark explained: "The two subjects we tend to avoid are politics and religion. They're conversation-stoppers. We tend to write songs with a social conscience, about our lives.
"What we have done is create what we could class as our own sound. Making mistakes, you stumble across a sound of your own. This record is more of a continuation for us rather than a huge transition. It's not a techno album. It's what we know."Posted on 30 Jul 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
