We are delighted to announce that chart-topping, platinum-selling and multiple award-nominated British rock band Scouting For Girls will perform at the Salon Perdu Spiegeltent following their incredible performance on the Electric Park Main Stage last September.
Formed in 2005, Scouting For Girls are Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and James Rowlands. They burst on to the scene with their 2007 self-titled debut, a record that reached number 1 in the UK Album Charts, went on to become triple platinum and birthed the generation-bridging anthems of ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ and ‘Heartbeat’. To date the album has sold over one million copies in the UK. In total, they have sold over two million records, including five albums and thirteen singles.
In the decade since Scouting For Girls, the band have released Everybody Wants To Be On TV (2010), The Light Between Us (2012), Still Thinking About You (2015) and 2019’s The Trouble with Boys, plus the chart-topping mega hit single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. They’ve picked up nominations for four Brits, an Ivor Novello and played everywhere from a sold-out Wembley Arena to countless festival stages.
Scouting For Girls, quite simply, write massive pop bangers. Roy Stride says, “We love making music that connects with people in a really fun, happy way. I love writing songs which I know are going to connect with ten thousand people in a field. We’ve always been an amazing party band. We’re the band playing in the middle of the afternoon at a festival, that everyone wants to see because they know it’s going to be fun. They know it’s going to be a laugh. With Scouting For Girls, the glass is definitely, always half full. I really enjoy looking at what we’ve done, but I also enjoy where we are at the moment. It is a very happy place to be.”
And that’s reflected in their last album 2019’s The Trouble With Boys, which featured lead single ‘Grown Up’, co-written with James Blunt. Upbeat, fun and infectious, ‘The Trouble With Boys’ dives into their love of uniquely British bands like The Kinks, ELO, Madness and The Beatles. It’s designed to make people feel good. It’s about remembering to be excited, care-free and in love. Feelings that we could all do with a dose of when Electric Park makes its return next summer.
