Originally meeting in their native city, Danny O'Donoghue and Mark Sheehan formed part of Dublin band MyTown in 1996. With four members, the group achieved some success in the UK and Ireland, but was pushed aside by the increasing numbers of boy bands that were entering the scene. The song-writing partnership between O'Donoghue and Sheehan had already been spotted and, after the demise of the MyTown, the pair travelled to Canada and the US to work with the likes of Teddy Riley and Montell Jordan. Several years later the duo returned to Dublin, where they added drummer Glen Power to the mix and hit an even richer vein of songwriting. Record label Phonogenic signed the group, now called The Script, in 2005 and released an EP on Last.FM. Their debut single We Cry was released in April 2008, received widespread support on radio networks in the UK and Ireland, and hit the top 20 and top 10 in the UK and Irish singles charts, respectively. Follow-up single The Man Who Can't Be Moved peaked at Number 2 in the UK, Ireland and Denmark, helping their debut album The Script fly into the UK album chart at Number 1 - it eventually went multi-platinum with more than 600,000 sales. Third single Breakeven came out just before Christmas 2008, proved a hit in Ireland and Russia, and was also their first US single released in April 2010; it was a hit there too and sold over one million copies.
