The Script Announce iTunes Pre-Order for Science & Faith

Epic Records - 11/09/2010

NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic recording artists and Irish rockers, The Script are proud to announce the forthcoming U.S. release of their sophomore album, Science & Faith on January 18th. Starting today - November 9th - fans can pre-order the album on the iTunes Store and by doing so will receive the poignant and stirring first single off Science & Faith entitled, "For The First Time," which recently impacted U.S. radio and is already resonating with people around the world.

The album, which was released overseas on September 13th, immediately garnered interest from critics and debuted at #1 in Ireland and the UK. Written and produced by The Script frontman, Danny O'Donoghue and guitarist Mark Sheehan, Science & Faith was recorded in both London and Dublin over the past year and is once again a testament to what The Script do best...pen emotion-packed songs that contain fluid melodies, haunting hooks and Danny's soulful vocals riding high over huge, anthemic choruses. As a bonus, the U.S. version of Science & Faith will feature "Bullet From A Gun," a track not available on the UK version.

In addition, the official video for "For The First Time" - which was shot by director Charles Mehling in both London and NYC - will premiere today at VH1.com with the extended long version of the video premiering at Vevo.com on November 10th.

The Script just recently wrapped a string of U.S. tour dates which brought the band through 19 markets across the country, including two back to back sold out NYC Terminal 5 shows on November 4th and November 5th.

2009 proved to be an extremely successful year for The Script. With the U.S. release of their debut album and the massive success of their platinum selling single, "Breakeven," The Script took America by storm; performing on The Today Show, The View, Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, and the Late Show with David Letterman to name a few. VH1 handpicked the band for their powerful "You Oughta Know" artist campaign and recently aired the band's "Unplugged" performance. Declared an "On The Verge" band by USA TODAY, Rolling Stone raved, "The Script...born to open for Paul McCartney," while Entertainment Weekly described The Script's music as, "smart piano-based pop that's well-crafted and romantic, recalling Coldplay, The Fray and, most impressively, The Police." Most recently the band performed on NBC's Today Show Summer Concert Series.

The Script is Danny O'Donoghue (vocals/keys), Mark Sheehan (guitar) and Glen Power (drums).
