Irish chart-toppers The Script may seem like such mellow lads, but lead singer Danny O'Donoghue has revealed they would fight like cat and dog if it weren't for their music.

The Dubliner (33) said recording and writing together maintains a sense of harmony between the trio.

He said they find it "incredibly hard" to unwind after performing before 30,000 fans, and that working on new material is the best release for them.

The We Cry stars made sure to hire a top-of-the-range studio bus for their tours, which allowed them to travel to venues while also recording when they felt inspired.

"We can pour a lot of that nervous energy and that time you're waiting around, we can really make something constructive out of that," he said.

"A lot of bands out there fall by the wayside because they either turn to drugs or drink to ease that itch. We said 'Let's take all that magic energy we get from our fans' because I find it really hard to calm down at the end of the night. It's so hard.

"If you don't have something like that, what we tend to do is we're lads and we fight.

"We fight just as hard as, if not harder than, the Gallaghers. Instead of killing each other on tour, having the studio there was a godsend."

Now promoting their fourth studio album, No Sound Without Silence, Danny also hit out at those bands who tried to crack America with the wrong attitude after having success in the UK.

He told Louise Duffy on Today FM how many of them go over to the States with an attitude but that Americans didn't like "cocky people".

"They don't like that whole 'You better like me or else'. They generally like hard-working people," he added.
