The Script have shown their support for Bono’s son’s band as their debut album gets ready to top the charts.

Eli Hewson, the 21-year-old son of Bono and Ali Hewson, is the vocalist and guitarist of Irish rock band Inhaler, who released their debut album It Won’t Always Be Like This on July 9th.

The Dublin quartet are currently leading Official Chart Update by over 7,000 chart sales having racked up the most physical and download sales over the weekend. 

Inhaler is vying for the top spot in Friday’s album charts and if successful, they’ll become the third Irish group to hold the coveted position in the last decade, following The Script and Westlife.

The Script are rooting for Inhaler’s success and have asked their fans to support the band to get their album to Number One.

In a social media post, the established musicians said: “These boys in Inhaler are on track for their debut album to go number 1 in the UK & Ireland!! 

“If they do, they will be the first Irish band to do it since we did it almost 13 years ago. #TheScriptFamily these boys deserve all the success, so grab your copy NOW and help them make history.”

Speaking about the album to Women’s Wear Daily, Eli Hewson explained that the seminal years between adolescence and adulthood were a major inspiration for record.

“I think if there’s one main feeling, it’s kind of hope and just wanting to be... I don’t know,” Hewson said.

“A lot of the songs were inspired by that area between being a teenager and being an adult, that kind of weird area where you have to take on a lot of responsibility. 

“For us, we left school and got straight into being in a band. You almost get into a band so you don’t have to grow up,” he added.
