The Script Discuss Their Harrowing Roadside Rescue

The Script

"The things people do to meet a band, eh?" joked The Script's Mark Sheehan, shortly after the band heroically rescued a woman from a car crash. As The Script sat comfortably in their tour bus, driving M40 in England, they were suddenly shaken up by their driver as a dramatic car crash took place on the motor way before them.

The band were reportedly traveling from London to a gig in Manchester when 18-year-old Hayley Cockman lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the motorway's central reservation. They frantically called the emergency services as the car came spinning to a halt near Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, at 11:15 am on 4th December, 2014.

All You Need To Know About The Script's New Album 'No Sound Without Silence'

The Script Danny O'Donoghue

Consistency is a rare thing in the music industry, but it's a thing of beauty when it occurs. For pop band The Script, the Irish trio have released three albums that have been nothing but great - and they're looking to continue that streak with their fourth record out next month.

The Script LiveThe Script released their brand new single, 'Superheroes'

The Script have been touring across the country with OneRepublic and American Authors since June and they'll be doing so until November. It may sound tiring, but the guys are pretty used to it. Last year, The Script went on a world tour to support their album, 3 - but they did more than just support the record. In fact, The Script's upcoming album out September 12, No Sound Without Silence, was primarily recorded in their tour bus during their routing. “We’d come off stage and start recording straight away in a studio bus," frontman Danny O'Donoghue told the Daily Star. It's an unconventional strategy, but definitely not unheard of. The Rolling Stones owned their own mobile recording studio that they'd lend to artists, and it ended up leading to albums from the likes of Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac. What made The Script decide to go mobile with this record? "Everything’s massive, everything’s larger than life on stage so when we hit the studio we wanted it to have that same impact," he said.

No Surprises: The Voice Judges Confirmed For Series Two

Jessie J Tom Jones The Script Danny O'Donoghue

The four judges from The Voice will be returning for the second series, which means fans of the show will once again be treated to saying "dope" a lot, Danny O'Donoghue talking drivel, Jessie J telling people she knows what it's like to be a female in the record business and Tom Jones generally looking bemused.

The BBC were probably most keen to sign Jessie J on for the second series, and the 'Do It Like a Dude' singer initially said she wouldn't be returning to the show. There were also rumours that Sir Tom might quit the show, while O'Donoghue is presumably just happy to be there. Audience figures for the first series began strongly, beating ITV's behemoth X Factor before dropping off monumentally. Leanne Mitchell won the first series. That's Leanne Mitchell. Anyone?

Anyway, they're all set to do it again, with O'Donoghue saying he has high hopes for the spring return. "The level of singers auditioning has gone through the roof", he told the BBC. The programme's format is likely to change slightly to keep viewers more interested in the latter stages of the competition. The blind auditions are a unique aspect of the show, though after that, it essentially follows the same tried and tested format of X Factor and Pop Idol. Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival in August, BBC controller of entertainment Mark Lindsey hinted at more use of the "spinning chair" segment.
