Biography
´╗┐Scouting for Girls are a London-based UK indie pop band formed in 2005 by Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard.

The debut album from Scouting For Girls is self-titled and has sold over 900,000 copies. It reached number 1 in the UK on 20 January 2008, where it remained for two weeks. Seven singles were released from the album including She's So Lovely which was used at the start of the 2008 movie - Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.

The name Scouting for Girls is a play on the words of the Scouting for Boys handbook first published in 1908 for the Scouts, which provides boys instructions on good citizenship. Similarly, the Scouting for Girls fan club is known as the "Wolfcubs" and is based on the Dennis the Menace fan club.

Scouting for Girls were nominated in the Best New Act category in the MTV Europe Music Awards 2008. On 20 January 2009, it was announced that the band were nominated for three BRIT Awards. The band recently received an award for Best British Band at the Nordiff Robbins awards

In April 2010 the second album Everybody Wants To Be On TV was released following its first single release of This Ain't A Love Song which was the Easter number one in the UK top 40. The band toured this album throughout 2010, commencing with a full UK tour throughout late April and May 2010 followed by performances in Germany and The Netherlands.
