Scouting for Girls to play at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds after releasing album Easy Cover




Scouting For Girls will play at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds in support of their new album of eighties covers.

The three-piece, best known for late-2000s hits She's So Lovely, This Ain't a Love Song, and Elvis Ain't Dead, will be in town on November 9.

It's all part of a UK-wide autumn tour supporting 'Easy Cover', their sixth studio effort which dropped last Friday.

The album mixes classics such as Tears for Fears' Everybody Wants to Rule the World and Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Want to Have Fun with new material inspired by the era.

Frontman Roy Stride said: "When lockdown came in 2020 I found comfort in nostalgia reworking these tracks that reminded me of my childhood.

"We’re not trying to do justice to these songs- that’s impossible! We’re just trying to have fun and take them out on the road to give people the night out they deserve after 2020.”

The band returned to the studio last year after finishing touring fifth album 'The Trouble with Boys' - which saw them close the year with a sold out show at Shepherd's Bush Empire.

Scouting for Girls will play at The Apex in Bury on Tuesday, November 9. Tickets, costing £26, are on sale now and can be bought here.
