The Script are home in Dublin to make a video for their third single, but the band's sights are set on making it big in America.
Following the success of their debut album hitting the UK number one spot, The Script are back in Dublin to record the video for their third single ‘Breakeven’. This is the first video the band have filmed in Dublin and features shots of the Great South Wall and of the band performing in the legendary music venue Whelan’s.
Lead singer and keyboard player Danny O'Donoghue says the current success experienced by the band has come from years of hard work and dedication.
Everyone kind of thinks it’s an overnight success, I’m like its been the longest bloody night of me life.
Drummer Glen Power explains the sentiment behind the song ‘Breakeven’.
When a heart breaks, it doesn’t break even, someone is always left with the lesser half.
The band’s last single ‘The Man Who Can't Be Moved’ and their eponymous debut album propelled the band to the top of the Irish and UK charts.
Their debut single ‘We Cry’ is scheduled for release in the US and the Dublin trio are banking on another chart topper that will help them break the crucial American market.
Producer and lead guitarist Mark Sheehan says having Irish support is crucial to the band cracking America.
It seems like it’s slowly seeping through there, it’s literally taking off there.
