IRISH rock band The Script is coming to the Bournemouth International Centre this autumn.

The band share 10 billion streams, 12 million album sales, six UK #1 albums, and two platinum-certified US singles.

To celebrate the new release of their new album, Satellites, the band is getting back together to tour across the UK and Europe.

A spokesperson for the band said: “‘One of the singles, Both Ways’ sees The Script strike out with swaggering new energy, with boisterous hip-hop and funk rhythms providing the irresistible dance-floor vibes to complement the star quality of Danny’s voice.

“The result is frantically fun, an explosive cocktail that brings to mind Black Eyed Peas playing Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ and it is a world apart from anything The Script have previously released.”

Vocalist Danny O’Donoghue said: “The album cover is silhouettes of me, Glen, and Ben Sargeant, our bassist, who's been with us from the beginning.

“Then we have a hooded silhouette because the air of Mark is still there. He always will be, but it's also giving a tip of the hat to the future.

“It'll never be the same Script. We're just trying to get on and do what it is that we all feel is the next right thing to do and that’s to keep making more great music.”

Bandmate Glen Power added: "'Both Ways’ is high energy, and maybe not what people might expect from us.

“But we’re The Script, and now we have something to prove that there is life and light after the darkness. It’s why we’re coming fast and strong with that one.”

Fans who pre-order Satellites from the band’s official store before 5pm on Tuesday, May 21 will receive access to an exclusive pre-sale for tickets for the UK and Ireland tour dates.

The highly anticipated show will take place at the BIC on November 19 later this year.

The pre-sale will open at 9.30am on May 22. Any remaining tickets go on general sale from 9.30am on Friday, May 24.
