Scouting For Girls announce new LP, The Trouble With Boys, and UK winter tour (2019)

Scouting For Girls, Grown Ups

Story by Jack Foley

TWO years after officially marking a decade since the release of Scouting For Girls’ million-selling eponymous self-titled debut album, the band have announced the release of a new album, The Trouble With Boys (set for release September 20) and a massive winter tour.

The band commented: “We are so excited to release The Trouble With Boys, our first studio album in four years. We’re really proud of it and genuinely feel it’s our best collection of songs since our debut. Both albums really benefited from the extra time and care we spent writing and recording them. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”

In addition, Scouting For Girls also confirmed a mammoth headline tour for Winter 2019. The Trouble With Boys tour will see the band play legendary venues such as London Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Manchester Albert Hall.

During their last tour in 2017, Scouting For Girls played to more people than they’ve ever played to before, celebrating their 2007 debut album that went on to become triple platinum Number 1 and birthed the generation-bridging anthems of She’s So Lovely, Elvis Aint Dead and Heartbeat.

SFG added: “Touring is our very favourite aspect of being in this band. Our 2017 anniversary tour was so incredible that we’re pulling out all the stops to beat it. We’ve got a handful of new tunes, some old fan favourites we haven’t played for years plus all the big singles. We can’t wait.”

As well as announcing a headline tour for later this year, Scouting For Girls – who are Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Pete Ellard – are also playing an extensive list of Summer Festivals.

Tickets for the headline tour go on sale on Friday, July 19.
