The Script's humble comparison

Irish band The Script have revealed while they find comparisons with U2 ''humbling'', the only similarity between the two groups is their shared nationality.
Great deals on musical instruments

The Script find comparisons with fellow Irish band U2 "humbling".

The 'Breakeven' hitmakers - whose self-titled debut LP achieved huge success in the UK and US -are flattered by comparisons with the iconic group, but insist there are few similarities between them.

Guitarist Mark Sheehan said: "As humbling as it is, how can anybody say that? The fact that we are Irish and carry instruments is the reason why we are compared with U2. I guess you could say we are the biggest band in Ireland to sell records generally since The Corrs or The Cranberries."

The rocker also revealed new album 'Science and Faith' - which is due for release in September - isn't of a political or religious nature as its title would suggest, and instead, is more of a "continuation" of the band's previous work.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post newspaper, Mark explained: "The two subjects we tend to avoid are politics and religion. They're conversation-stoppers. We tend to write songs with a social conscience, about our lives.

"What we have done is create what we could class as our own sound. Making mistakes, you stumble across a sound of your own. This record is more of a continuation for us rather than a huge transition. It's not a techno album. It's what we know."
