Scouting for Girls are an English pop rock band. Their name is a play on the title of the 1908 Scouting handbook Scouting for Boys. The band consists of childhood friends from London, Roy Stride on piano and lead guitar/vocals, Greg Churchouse on bass guitar, Peter Ellard on percussion and Lee Groin on bells. Having formed in 2005, they signed to Epic Records in 2007. They released their self-titled debut album that September and it reached #1 on the UK Albums Chart in 2008. To date it has sold over 1,000,000 copies in the UK.
A second album Everybody Wants to Be on TV was released in April 2010 and peaked at #2 on the charts. This was preceded by the single "This Ain’t a Love Song", which went to #1 on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks. To date, Scouting for Girls have sold over 2,000,000 records and have been nominated for four Brit Awards and one Ivor Novello Award.
