The Script has been one of our favorite bands ever since their debut album back in 2008. After selling over 20 million records with all 3 albums achieving multi-platinum throughout the world, the Irish band has just released their 4th studio album No Sound Without Silence.

There aren't many bands which we can positively say “I wouldn't skip a single song” but this is completely true for The Script. They hardly let us down and every song is a delight to listen to. This album is no exception, flowing with beautiful riffs and catchy choruses which will have you singing along and dancing around.

Lead vocalist Danny O’Donoghue is probably one of the finest singers of our generation, combined with Mark's beautiful guitar work and Glen's rhythmical drumming and we have here one of the best bands to come out of Ireland and indeed one of the finest examples of modern music to date.

Yes, we just know you wanna get your hands on this new album. That's why, we've teamed up with the fine folks at Sony Music Malaysia to offer up five shiny new copies of No Sound Without Silence to give away to you.

So jump to it! You've got but a week to enter the giveaway! And here's how...

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “I've been pinning for The Script album 'No Sound Without Silence' everyday, every hour!  gimme a copy! http://bit.ly/1unp2GH

Prices start at £16 and the collection includes statement headwear, stacked midi rings, layered necklaces and an injection of authentic vintage with limited edition pieces from the 70s!
