Scouting For Girls : Related Information

Scouting for Girls are a British indie pop band formed in 2005 by Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard. The name Scouting for Girls is a play on the words of the Scouting for Boys handbook first published in 1908 for the Scouts. It has been noted that Scouting for Girls was looking for a spirited way of removing themselves from the drudgery of their everyday lives. Churchouse has observed on several occasions that playing bass is something he wanted to pursue as the bass has "two less strings".

Scouting for Girls were nominated in the Best New Act category in the MTV Europe Music Awards 2008. On 20 January 2009, it was announced that Scouting for Girls were nominated for three BRIT Awards. However, Scouting for Girls were unsuccesful in all 3 nominations.

On 14 February 2007, Scouting for Girls were signed to Epic UK (a division of Sony BMG). Almost immediately Scouting for Girls headed out to Helioscentric Studios in Rye, East Sussex to begin work on their debut album. Produced by Andy Green (Keane, KT Tunstall, The Feeling), the Scouting for Girls first release was the ‘It’s Not About You’ EP, released on the 25th June 2007. It sold-out, and became the highest charting limited edition EP in chart history. The album was released in September 2007, and has sold in excess of 900,000 copies in the UK alone. It spawned a host of hit singles; She's So Lovely, Heartbeat, and Elvis Ain't Dead. ‘Scouting For Girls’ self-titled went to number 1 in the UK on 20th January 2008, where it remaind for 2 weeks.

Scouting for Girls toured the UK heavily throughout 2007 and 2008, upgrading and selling-out venues in every city they performed. During their first tour of 2008, Roy Stride lost his voice en route to a gig in Birmingham and was diagnosed with laryngitis, forcing Scouting for Girls to reschedule a series of dates on the tour. The rescheduled dates included an extra night in London, with the band-selling out a record 4 consecutive nights at the Shepherds Bush Empire. Scouting for Girls final tour of the year concluded with two sold-out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, and one at London’s Brixton Academy. Scouting For Girls also made a series of appearances in Europe, Japan, Australia and America in 2008, including performances at 2008’s SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas and CMJ in New York City.

Scouting For Girls returned to Helioscentric Studios (East Sussex, UK) in 2009 to commence work on their second album with producer Andy Green (who produced the band’s eponymous debut album). The new album from Scouting For Girls, ‘Everybody Wants To Be On TV’, was released in the UK on the 12th April 2010. The first single to be taken from the record was 'This Ain't A Love Song' which went straight to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart on the 4th April 2010, giving the Scouting For Girls 2010’s Easter Number 1. The trio subsequently became the first British band to have a number 1 single since Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’ in 2008. In the lead up the album’s release, Scouting For Girls performed in the Woolpack Pub on the set of long-running British soap, Emmerdale for a Radio Aire session.

Scouting For Girls have announced a tour in UK to promote their new album throughout 2010, commencing with a full UK tour throughout late April and May 2010.
