Things from The Script have been quiet as of late, but they’ve been hard at work ensuring that they continue to exceed their 20 million records sold across the world with their new record.

The Script, who first formed in 2001 are set to release their fourth album ‘No Sound Without Silence’ later this year and they’ve spoken about that process in a new interview.

Speaking with Press Party the band’s drummer Glen Power spoke about a number of topics, one of which included their new single ‘Superheroes’.

The track is due to be released on the 31st of August and Press Party he was asked if he believed it was one of their “best singles yet?”.

Power explained: “The reaction to the single has been amazing. All over our social networks our fans are loving it – we’re very excited and even more excited to get out there on the road and play these new songs live.”

Discussing themes that run through the song he explained that the single is about “working against the odds” and “being the underdog” but it’s also about all those “unsung heroes” out there.

On the topic of their new album ‘No Sound Without Silence’ which is due to be released in September Glen was asked how it compares to their previous records.

He explained that 70% of the album was created using the energy from their last two tours in America where they bought a tour bus with a recording studio built in.

Following each performance they would leave the stage and go straight to the bus where they’d get new material recorded while pumped up following their set.

Press Party also asked about collaborations on the new record – bringing up that will.i.am featured on the last record and Glen explained that there are none this time.

He added that collaborations only happen for the band “when it happens naturally” and it didn’t happen this time because they were so busy with their tours and recording.

The Script have had an incredible amount of success while they’ve been in the US, something which many struggle with, but Glen believes this is because their music has universal themes that everyone can connect with.
