The Script released their fourth album, “No Sound Without Silence,” in America on Tuesday, Sept. 30. The album was released earlier in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and other countries. “No Sound Without Silence” is a pop rock album coming in at number 1 in Ireland, Scotland, and the United Kingdom. It is currently rated with 4.5 stars on iTunes.

The Script, whose genre is classified as pop rock, originated in Ireland. The band is made up of 3 males: Danny O’Donoghue, who is does the lead vocals, keyboard, and guitar; Mark Sheehan, who does the lead guitar and backup vocals; and Glen Power, who does the drums, backup vocals, and additional instruments.

The album includes songs such as their latest single, “Superheroes,” a song for the underdog. “Paint the Town Green” is a dance song in the album that celebrates the band’s Irish heritage. Other songs include varying messages about topics such as having fun and Glen Power’s fear of heights.

They performed many of their new songs at the iTunes Festival to promote the new album being released that week.

This long-awaited album was well worth the wait. The songs are beautifully written, have wonderful messages, and are “feel good” songs. What more could you ask for in an album?
