Scouting for Girls are a three piece English pop rock band. Their name is a play on the title of the 1908 Scouting handbook Scouting for Boys. The trio consists of childhood friends from London, Roy Stride on piano and lead guitar/vocals, Greg Churchouse on bass guitar and Peter Ellard on percussion. Having formed in 2005, they signed to Epic Records in 2007. They released their self titled debut album that September, which reached Number 1 on the UK Album Chart and went triple Platinum in terms of total sales. A second album Everybody Wants To Be On TV was released in April 2010 and peaked at number 2 in the charts. This was preceded by the single “This Ain’t a Love Song” which went to No.1 in the UK singles chart for two weeks. To date Scouting for Girls have been nominated for Brit awards, and one Ivor Novello award. In September 2012 they released their third studio album, The Light Between Us, which debuted at number 10 on the UK charts. Their Greatest Hits album released last week reached number 8 in the album chart.
