The Script 'struggled for money'
By Fiona Mayers
Irish band The Script may be riding high in the charts now, but it has not always been plain sailing.
Speaking to the Sun, they revealed how they struggled for money in the past.
Singer Danny O'Donaghue said: "Sometimes we'd get work in January then nothing until March - so we were broke.
"Food was going off in the fridge as the electricity went so we had to rob the ice to keep our food chilled.
"Sometimes it was off for four or five days until we earned enough money to switch it back on."
The band - who have toured with U2 and Take That in the past - said some artists today seem to be more concerned about their image and perfume lines than they are about their music.
"You won't find a picture of ourselves on the front of a CD - would you do that if you looked like us?
"We're not doing this for fame and self-gratification," O'Donaghue added.
The Script's latest album Science & Faith is out now.
