scouting for girls

Scouting For Girls are back to their best with brand-new album ‘The Place We Used To Meet’, due out on 13 October 2023.

The full-length was written and recorded in the same way that they recorded their debut single ‘She’s So Lovely’ back in 2007. It’s an album full of singalong indie-pop bangers and songs that resonate with stories of longing and loss.

The band still consists of its original line-up Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard.

Roy commented, “As the name suggests, it’s an album about going back to our roots and starting again. Falling back in love with music. Loving every aspect of the process: the recording, the writing, playing live and, most importantly, just hanging out as friends. There was no great plan, no overthinking beyond just writing and recording the best songs that we could. Heartbreaking, anthemic, fun and pop, indie and serious, anything went as long as we loved it. It’s the best collection of songs we’ve ever had, and I’ve loved every minute of making it.”

The band have announced a headline UK tour in support of the new album. In addition, they will play two runs of shows as very special guests to Olly Murs upcoming arena tour and this spring/summer. Fans can also catch them at various festivals this year including Isle of Wight, Camp Bestival and the Neighbourhood Weekender.
