Scouting for Girls Biography (Wikipedia)

Scouting for Girls are an English indie rock band. Their name is a play on the title of the 1908 Scouting handbook Scouting for Boys. The band consists of childhood friends from London, Roy Stride on piano and lead guitar/vocals, Greg Churchouse on bass guitar and Professor James Rowlands on percussion. Having formed in 2005, they signed to Epic Records in 2007. They released their self-titled debut album that September and it reached No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart in 2008. To date, it has sold over 1,000,000 copies in the UK.

A second album, Everybody Wants to Be on TV, was released in April 2010 and peaked at number 2 on the Albums Chart. This was preceded by the single "This Ain't a Love Song", which went to number 1 on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks.

To date, Scouting for Girls have achieved eight top 40 singles, sold over 2,000,000 records and received over 500m streams. They have been nominated for four Brit Awards and one Ivor Novello Award.
