McFly will reform in 2019 reveals Dougie Poynter — nine years after last album

POP reunions by Westlife and the Spice Girls aren’t the only ones taking place in 2019 — McFly are getting in on the action, too.

The group are reforming to work on their sixth record, 15 years after their breakthrough and nine years after studio album Above The Noise.

Bassist Dougie Poynter said: “McFly will at least start writing by the summer and I can’t wait.
“I love that band and I love the guys. It’s awesome.”

It will be welcome news for fans who have been unsure about the group’s future since the last tour more than two years ago.

McFly scored seven UK No1 singles and 19 top ten tunes as well as teaming up with Busted for a joint album and live shows as McBusted in 2014.

But Dougie, who launched the band in 2004 with Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones, said McFly’s return was initially supposed to happen last year.

He explained: “We decided to take some time off after we did McBusted because it was a two-year tour and there was naturally some other things everyone wanted to do.

“It actually worked out really well because all the other guys had kids in that time, so they’ve all been home for their kids.

“It almost happened last year but someone had a project or something that was coming up smack bang in the middle. And we just didn’t think there was any point.”

And although they are yet to start writing their next album together, Dougie has been penning some songs.

Speaking on the Sappenin’ podcast, he added: “I secretly kind of am, I’ve got a bunch of ideas so I’m waiting for when we go in.”

Here’s hoping that speeds things along a bit.
