ScoutingforGirls

British pop group Scouting For Girls have announced a headline UK Tour alongside the release of their new album “Still Thinking About You,” which is set to be released on October 16th. 

The first single to be taken from the album is called “Life’s Too Short,” and is available to download and stream now. The chart-topping trio will tour the UK throughout November and December, also playing London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 30th

Still Thinking About You is the band’s first new album since 2012, and their first under their new label, East West.

The album debuts a fresh, more mature sound for Scouting For Girls, with the band taking a new approach to writing and recording. The band’s frontman, Roy Stride said: “We tried to make a collection of songs that worked together, which we’d never really done before, and we wanted to make songs that connect truthfully and emotionally. It’s about being instinctive, and honest.”

The band, who met at school and formed Scouting For Girls in 2005, have four Top Ten albums and four Top Ten singles to their name, including a No.1 album and a No.1 single. “As weird as it sounds, so few records these days have any real instruments on them.” Ray added. “We’ve got proper pianos, and proper strings. We didn’t want anything tuned on the vocals. We’d just sing it till it sounded good and natural.”
