Irish rockers the Script hope ‘#3’ is a charm

Thanks to the breakthrough hit “Breakeven” from its 2008 debut and tenacious touring, Irish pop-rock trio the Script has managed to carve out a solid career on this side of the pond, bumping up on each trip from clubs to theatres to bigger venues, including a show at the Agganis Arena on Friday.

The band — fronted by keyboardist Danny O’Donoghue and rounded out by guitarist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power — has also made fans of famous folk like U2 and Paul McCartney with its mellifluous sound. O’Donoghue has also broadened the Script’s profile by working as a coach on the UK edition of “The Voice.” We recently chatted with O’Donoghue from a Boca Raton, Fla., tour stop about “#3” — his band’s new album of tuneful pop anthems with hip-hop flourishes — working with the Black Eyed Peas’, and living in the moment.
