Magners Secret Cider Garden Presents Scouting for Girls
Live at Old Billingsgate, London, 14th September

Throughout Scouting For Girls’ immensely successful career they’ve sold over two million albums, two million singles, had four Brit Award nominations, an Ivor Novello nomination, had four top ten singles, sold-out Wembley Arena, The Royal Albert Hall and most recently sold-out two nights at The London Palladium and had a series of hit singles all of which were inescapable radio smashes. Scouting For Girls continue to prove they are unstoppable.

The past 2 years have been an unprecedented year in so many ways. And like many of us, indie-pop band Scouting For Girls initially responded by surrounding themselves with sources of comfort and escapism, things from what felt like a simpler time. Going back to the music and culture of their childhoods in the 1980s, the band regrouped in 2020 during what should have been a summer of festivals, and the result is a joyous album of 80s covers alongside some incredible new tracks, and an optimism that 2021 could be everything that 2020 was
not! This rained true for the group as they have just completed their 42 date UK and Ireland tour amidst the pandemic in 2021.

Roy commented; “Touring is our very favourite aspect of being in this band and to go out longer and harder than ever is a dream come true. We’re going to put 2020 behind us and put two years of pent-up energy into every night of this tour – We can’t wait to give people the most fun night out of 2021”

During the lockdown’s, Roy had time to extend the bands repertoire, reimagining of some of the biggest songs from the 80s. ‘Easy Cover’, their latest album release, is a joyous celebration of that golden era of music with Scouting For Girls revisiting their favorite childhood musical moments, from Tears For Fears, The Waterboys, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins
and much more.

“We’re not trying to do justice to these songs! That’s impossible. We’re just trying to
have fun and take them out on the road to give people the night out they deserve
after 2020!”

However, it’s not just covers and Roy (who has songwriting credits with One Direction, Five Seconds of Summer & The Vamps) was soon inspired to write some original material inspired by the decade. Upcoming single ‘I Wish It Was 1989” (“An anthem for 2020!”) and album closer and new single ‘Xmas In The 80s’ (“A nostalgic longing for when Santa was called
Father Christmas) are already set to be Scouting fan favourites and show Roy’s unique songwriting at its very best.
