Irish rockers The Script are launching their own management company.

The Breakeven hitmakers have decided to nurture new talent by setting up the company, and guitarist Mark Sheehan is enjoying the challenge.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "We recently branched out and started our own management and publishing company. It's baby steps. We're not trying to do anything crazy but we're taking on a couple of little projects that we're really excited about.

"I enjoy running a business where I can learn, so while we are sitting in a dressing room it's nice to be able to apply that. To be able to bring new bands on tour with us or get them on stage during soundcheck is a nice thing."

Frontman Danny O’Donoghue adds, "We have eight hours a day to sit around and talk s**t. We can waffle on about the industry and music and how we can improve things."
