Believe it or not, there is musical life after a spell in a boy band.

Mark Sheehan and Danny O’Donoghue are former members of My Town, the Irish boy band who signed a huge record deal in the 1990s and released a debut album co-produced by Teddy Riley, but who failed to set the world alight.

Sheehan and O’Donoghue, along with Glen Power, are now The Script, a band signed to RCA Records who are receiving a lot of attention thanks to their We Cry track, with BBC Radio 1 and music industry magazine Record of the Day tipping the band for bigger things.

The Script are currently touring Britain supporting The Hoosiers.
