A gig by indie outfit Scouting for Girls has sold out nearly a month ahead of the performance.

The show in the stunning setting of Marlborough College's Memorial Hall has been organised by local independent record shop Sound Knowledge.
It celebrates the release of new album The Place We Used To Meet.
The Sound Knowledge team said in a social media message to fans: "It's always a pleasure to catch up with the Scouting For Girls boys and we're delighted to be welcoming them back for an exclusive outstore performance at 8pm on Friday 20th October to celebrate the release of their brand new album 'The Place We Used To Meet'. 
"While they've played for us on many occasions over the years, this will be the first in the stunning setting of Marlborough College's Memorial Hall.
"Friends since they were five, indie pop three-piece Scouting For Girls (Roy Stride, Pete Ellard, and Greg Churchouse) have never changed to chase success. Success came to them; their 2007 self-titled debut went on to become triple platinum and birthed the generation-bridging anthems of ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ and ‘Heartbeat’. And they have never looked back. 
"Scouting For Girls went on to release ‘Everybody Wants To Be On TV’ (2010), ‘The Light Between Us’ (2012), ‘Still Thinking About You’ (2015), The Trouble With Boys (2019), Easy Cover (2021) plus the mega number 1 hit single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. They’ve picked up nominations for four Brits, an Ivor Novello and played everywhere from a sold-out Wembley Arena to countless festival stages.
"After so many highlights, the trio questioned where to go next as they planned their seventh studio album. The solution? To return to their roots back when they were three unknown musicians in Ruislip, west London, and reconnect with the reasons that they started a band in the first place. As a result, Scouting For Girls are back to their best with their new album ‘The Place We Used To Meet’, which will be released on October 13th."
