It's little over a year since Scouting For Girls signed their recording contract and already the West-London trio of Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard have sold enough copies of their self titled debut album to reach number 1 and achieve platinum status. In September Scouting For Girls released their first single, 'She's So Lovely' which peaked at 7, and spent an amazing six weeks in the UK Top 10.
Roy Stride says about their sudden popularity and the forthcoming tour, "To be honest, we're all still pinching ourselves. It has been a real whirlwind already, but we were always going to do this."
