Launch parties

Celebrating Science & Faith the band played a series of intimate gigs in Ireland, the UK and Australia.

“We had a show last night in the Islington Academy that we put on for all our fans, it was a free gig. We put it up on Facebook saying “listen if you guys can give us a push to No.1, and tell all your friends, we’ll put on a free show.” And lo and behold that week we were at No.1, so we came through on the promise and put the show on last night. It was a big success and everyone was there. It was a bit more special than a lot of the other gigs because I was looking around the crowd and I knew literally every person there. All of these people had come to so many shows over the years.” (Danny)

America

The Script returned to America to tour the country before the new album’s release there. It seemed to work out well, after the album was released in January it performed extremely well on the charts:

The lads have been causing a storm across the pond, with their UK #1 album ‘Science & Faith’, going top 3 in the US billboard charts in it’s first week of release, and the album peaking at #2 on iTunes in the US and at #1 in Canada. Breaking the US was a dream for the band, and their hard work has made the dream come true. (The Script website, 2011)
