SCOUTING For Girls will be performing in Llandrindod Wells later this year as part of a mammoth 42-date UK Tour.

The British pop rock band have announced the Llandrindod date alongside the release of new album ‘Easy Cover’, which hits the shelves tomorrow (April 23).

The London-based trio will play an extensive list of UK shows throughout September, October and November as Covid-19 restrictions will allow for musicians and bands to tour once again – hence the packed schedule.

They’ll play Llandrindod’s Pavilion on October 22nd – where the audience will be treated to some of the band’s hit singles like ‘She's So Lovely’, ‘Elvis Ain't Dead’ and ‘This Ain't a Love Song’.

Going back to the music and culture of their childhoods in the 1980s, the band regrouped during what should have been a summer of festivals last year, and the result is an album of 80s covers alongside some incredible new tracks, and an optimism that 2021 can be everything that 2020 was not.

Easy Cover is a pun on 80s hero Phil Collins’ ‘Easy Lover’ and the album is a joyous celebration of a golden era of music with Scouting For Girls revisiting their favourite childhood musical moments, from Tears For Fears, The Waterboys, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins and much more.

“We’re not trying to do justice to these songs. That’s impossible,” frontman Roy Stride said.

“We’re just trying to have fun and take them out on the road to give people the night out they deserve after 2020.”

With touring almost entirely curtailed in 2020, the band want to get out across the UK and this tour will be the longest in their history, visiting many new towns and cities.

Roy added: “Touring is our very favourite aspect of being in this band and to go out longer and harder than ever is a dream come true.

“We’re going to put 2020 behind us and put two years of pent-up energy into every night of this tour. We can’t wait to give people the most fun night out of 2021.”

Scouting For Girls have sold over two million albums, two million singles, had four Brit Award nominations, an Ivor Novello nomination, had four top ten singles, sold out Wembley Arena, The Royal Albert Hall and most recently sold out two nights at The London Palladium.
