Looks love we’ll have new Mcfly music soon!!!

DOUGIE Poynter has confirmed McFly are working on new music for the first time in six years ahead of their comeback Anthology Tour in September.

Following a three year break, where the boys scrapped their sixth studio album to join forces with Matt Willis and James Bourne and form supergroup McBusted, the bass player has revealed McFly have big plans for the future.

“There will be new McFly music,” he confirmed to The Sun Online at V Festival.

“There’s a few ideas floating around already, we’ll hopefully be writing stuff on tour.”

The new McFly material will follow their fifth album Above the Noise which was released in 2010.

Where as a sixth album was expected to follow, the boys scrapped all plans after forming McBusted and are now starting from scratch.

They released Memory Lane: The Best Of McFly in 2012.

In June, Tom excited fans by posting a selfie at a piano to McFly’s official Facebook with the caption: “Writing.”

Talking about reuniting as the four-piece, Dougie added: “McFly will always be there.

“They’re my family, we’re all brothers.”

McFly first formed in 2003, with members Dougie, Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd topping the charts with debut album Room On The Third Floor.

The band spent the next decade selling out arenas around the country, before joining forces with Matt and James for two years of McBusted.

In September they’ll regroup and head out on their sold out comeback Anthology Tour.

The intimate tour will see the boys playing three consecutive nights in four different cities.

McFly will be heading to Manchester, London, Glasgow and Birmingham.

Each evening they’ll play two of their albums in full, with each city hearing every single McFly track ever released across the three nights.

The tour, initially scheduled for June, was pushed back to September after Harry suffered a neck injury.

Now fighting fit after rehab and a period of rest, McFly are ready to burst back into the spotlight.

Dougie did a new photoshoot an interview with FAULT Magazine and he talks about McFly, his acting career and the tour.

[x7]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > NATHAN PASK PHOTOSHOOT FOR FAULT

Dougie Poynter first burst onto the scene back in 2004 as part of the band Mcfly  who in their career spanning over thirteen years have amassed 19 top 10 singles, 5 albums and will be heading off on their 14th tour in September! Dougie’s personal writing skills are just as impressive, credited for his songwriting on tracks by 5SOS and One Direction respectively, he has also cut his teeth as FAULT Magazine’s own guest reporter at London Collection Man. 

We caught up with Dougie to discuss next month’s tour, favourite band moments and where his creative steps will take him.

When the news broke that bandmate Harry Judd had suffered a neck injury forcing you to postpone your Mcfly Anthology tour, were you relieved for the extra rehearsal time?

It’s weird, it felt like someone had moved Christmas. I’m still very excited though and now Danny will actually have learned all the songs again. The only bit of production we were bringing on tour was an autocue for lyrics so it’ll be nice to just let loose without it!

You’re going from 6 members in McBusted back to 4 in Mcfly, will the stage feel more daunting with less members?

There will be more space, that’s for sure because with 6 of us we were constantly running into each other. When we would play arenas it was fine because the stage was massive but our guitars came away full of dents! I have some gnarly jumps up my sleeve now we have the extra space.

In a few words, what can fans expect to see on your tour?

It’s every album back to back. There will be songs that as a band we’ve only ever played one time during recording sessions but never played live. It will definitely be a one off for us.

Looking back to 2013 and to McFly’s first album, many people said you’d be a passing fancy but here you are in 2016 you’re about to embark on nationwide tour. How does it feel to prove so many naysayers wrong?

It doesn’t feel like good in a smug sense because for us it’s been a continuous thing. It really weirds us out when people are like “you were my first concert when I was in year 6” and now they’re all adults with jobs and kids! We’ve never really stopped working, even when we took 9 months off after McBusted to work on other projects, we were all still working.

We are just grateful that we have had the opportunity to stay making music because we always say to ourselves that “the band won’t be around forever” although we’re starting to think it will be! Our awesome fanbase keeps us going even though we haven’t released new music in so long. We’ve actually recorded 2 albums and just scrapped them because we can’t make up our minds at all!

Do you foresee there will be McFly tour when you’re old and grey?

If we survive that is! Everyone keeps hurting themselves, Harry has slipped a disc and Danny fractured his elbow so it’s pretty good we had more time to recoup and recover!

Can you pinpoint one favourite moment from your career?

We’ve done some really cool stuff and won awards and set world records but honestly, when we’re all together and reminiscing, our favourite moments are when we’re just pissing around and getting up to no good. It’s the little things…Although it is nice to win awards.

Future plans for the rest of the year?

Everyone has their own thing going on. As we’ve gotten older our solo careers keep us busy, Tom has his songwriting and Danny is a DJ and I’ve been out in the states doing my own thing. We’ll probably postpone the tour again after I hurt myself on this shoot!

What are you working on in the states?

I’ve been studying acting for the last 2 years. I just really enjoy studying and taking on new crafts. It’s a bit of everything and by the end of the tour I plan to relocate to LA and continue the acting.

Despite only ever putting your music out there, the press continuously write about your personal relationships, has that pressure every become too much for you?

I don’t like the personal stories about me. It always freaks me out, I know some celebrities can just brush it off and say any press is good press but there’s something about it that makes me feel very uneasy.

What is your FAULT?

I hate the feeling of powerlessness. I’ve been very involved with charities cleaning up the ocean and stopping plastics and micro plastics from being dumped but it Is bewildering to see just how much needs to be done and how little I can do alone.

Burberry hosted a super swanky soiree for London Collections: Men so our resident vlogger, Joshington Hosts chatted to Dougie Poynter, Suki Waterhouse, Jeremy Irvine and Tom Odell about lucky pants, party routines and major turn offs.

Dougie Poynter is no stranger to the male cleavage but his tips for nailing it? ‘Some chest hair and necklaces to distract from the boobs. Guys find it easier to get away with a nipple slip, right?’ The McFly star wasn’t the only one rocking out with his chest out, the singer, Tom Odell even unbuttoned another button for Joshington Hosts. HOW RACY! Talk about raising the temperature!

I can’t add the video so you can watch it HERE

With his hipster hair and rugged, manly chest, it’s little wonder why Perrie Edwards has just confessed to thinking Dougie Poynter is ‘pretty cute.’

The McFly singer joined the stars at a Tommy Hilfiger dinner during London Collections: Men on Saturday, just as his rumoured new love interest was being questioned about their connection.

It’s been four days since Dougie and Little Mix’s Perrie appeared ‘inseparable’ in one corner of Tuesday’s Glamour Women Of The Year Awards.

‘Dougie’s lovely, he’s a good mate. He is pretty cute yeah,’ Perrie told The Sun on Saturday as she performed across town at Wembley Stadium, London for the Capital FM Summertime Ball.

Of their reported tryst, a source told MailOnline earlier this week: ‘They were pretty inseparable at the [Glamour Awards] after show.

‘Dougie, 28, was with Perrie, 22, for ages looking cosy. He didn’t leave her side towards the end of the night.’

‘She was enjoying his company and broke off from the other Little Mix girls to spend time with him. She looked really happy.’

Dougie was left heartbroken when he split from his last pop princess girlfriend, Ellie Goulding, 29, in March and Perrie has remained single after splitting from former fiancé Zayn Malik.

But from one boyband singer to another, Dougie’s mind was focussed on fashion this weekend as he put in yet another appearance at LC:M.

Joining him on the night were a host of dapper chaps, including Olivia Palermo’s husband Johannes Huebl and Pixie Lott’s boyfriend Oliver Cheshire.

Known for his fashion know-how Britain’s Next Top Model judge Paul Sculfor was also looked slick in a smart suit and tie.

Meanwhile, the man himself was sure to make an appearance, since fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger spent time mingling with his guests.

The boys put on a dapper and stylish display as they stepped out at the glitzy bash in London.

The Glamour Women of the Year Awards is taking over London, and the boys are out in style to show their support.

While the likes of Kourtney Kardashian and Amanda Holden have taken over the red carpet in stunning gowns, the men have also made their mark as they arrived at the annual ceremony on Tuesday night.

McFly star Dougie Poynter made an impact in a leather jacket adding a flash of colour to the all black outfit underneath, adding a pair of boots to complete the look.

Singer Craig David stuck to a similar style and colour scheme, although the hunk completed his look with a grey suit jacket to give a dapper feel to his image.

Meanwhile, former Union J singer George Shelley went for a much bolder choice in a grey suit worn over a colourful patterned shirt.

Comedian Jack Whitehall was amongst those on the red carpet, and went for a classic black suit and tie as he posed for the cameras.

It was a style choice also chosen by Tom Evans, who went for a pale blue shirt and red tie under his jacket.

I will add the pics to the gallery in a bit.

Dougie Poynter showed off his sense of style as he stepped out at the Topman Design show as part of The London Collections Men SS17.

The event took place on Friday, and the McFly bassist stepped out in an abstract red, black and white punk jacket to join in the fun this week.

Although he was spotted with a bold, white-rimmed pair of shades at the showcase, Dougie kept the rest of his outfit fairly reserved, with a pair of black skinny jeans and smart shoes completing the ensemble.

He was in good company for the show, with Radio 1 DJ and former X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw also spotted mingling at the event.

With his bleached blonde hair, Grimmy went for a similarly bright suit, pairing white jacket and pants with blue trainers and a black t-shirt.

Model David Gandy was also there, showing everyone how it’s done in a very sharp navy suit and tie.

Not to be outdone in the style stakes, the hunk completed it with a pair of light trousers and brown shoes, looking effortlessly cool in a pair of shades.

Pixie Lott ‘s boyfriend Oliver Cheshire joined the crowds too, keeping it simple with a blazer worn over a zipped up jacket.

Sadly McFly has postponed their tour to september as Harry has been diagnosed with an hernia. Read the full statement below. We wish Harry a good recovery and can’t wait to see them play in a few months!

Harry Judd has an acute disc herniation at C6/7 level and sadly cannot perform this June as he needs treatment and a period of rest.

Harry Judd adds: “I’m absolutely gutted that we’ve had to postpone the tour. I’ve honestly tried everything to make it work, but I’d never want to do a tour where I wouldn’t be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night. I’m going to do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we’ve ever put on!”

Tom Fletcher says: “Sorry we’ve had to move the tour. Completely Harry’s fault. All complaints to be sent to @mcflyharry. On a more positive note, it gives Danny more time to learn the words to our songs. See you all in September.”

All existing dates from June have been rescheduled for September. The new dates are as follows:

September 2016

Monday 12 – Manchester Academy
Tuesday 13 – Manchester Academy
Wednesday 14 – Manchester Academy

Friday 16 – Glasgow O₂ Academy
Saturday 17 – Glasgow O₂ Academy
Sunday 18 – Glasgow O₂ Academy

Wednesday 21 – Birmingham O₂ Academy
Thursday 22 – Birmingham O₂ Academy
Friday 23 – Birmingham O₂ Academy

Monday 26 – London O₂ Forum Kentish Town
Tuesday 27 – London O₂ Forum Kentish Town
Wednesday 28 – London O₂ Forum Kentish Town

All original tickets will be valid for the rescheduled corresponding shows – so if you’re attending Show 2 (tracks from ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Motion in the Ocean’) in Manchester your ticket is valid for Show 2 in Manchester for the rescheduled date. For any issues or enquires please contact your point of purchase.

Last month McFly announced a 2016 UK tour, playing up close and personal at historic rock venues across London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester. The Anthology Tour is a unique concept; the band will play three nights in each city, with each concert featuring a different set list from a different McFly album, alongside some of the band’s biggest hits.

The first night in each city will feature songs from ‘Room on The Third Floor’, the second night songs from ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Motion In The Ocean’, whilst the third night will feature songs from ‘Radio:ACTIVE’ and ‘Above The Noise’.

These extra special shows, now scheduled for September, are a unique opportunity to see McFly perform almost all of their amazing back catalogue, from album tracks to bonafide smash hits, ensuring every fan will hear at least one of their favourite Mcfly songs.

We loved him in the early McFly days, but his HOT HOT HOT transformation has got us swooning over Dougie Poynter.

1. 2004: Back when it all began, Dougie was all long hair and cargo shorts…

… and even then he had his fans swooning after him everywhere that he went.

The post is from friday but is actually really accurate so i thought it would be cool to share it with you guys:)

We might never get over this

At precisely 9am this morning, tickets to McFly’s recently announced UK Anthology tour officially went on sale to the general public, and if you were sat there with us, mouse hovering over the refresh button, then you’ll know what a rollercoaster ride it was.

Somehow managed to get yourself a golden ticket into the teeny tiny venues to see the boys for the first time in years? Oh congrats, we’re SO HAPPY FOR YOU (ugh), you’ve officially got magic powers and are better humans than we are.

But if you, like us, epically failed in your mission to secure McFly tickets then you may feel better in the knowledge that you are definitely not alone. Here’s the 13 emotional stages that we all experienced today.

1. PURE JOY
April 25th 2016 will henceforth be known as the best day of my life. McFly are officially back together after many, many moons of a soulless emptiness in the music industry, and they’re going on tour too. My days on this Earth have peaked.

2. DOUBT
Hang on. What if… What if I don’t get tickets? Why the BLOODY NORA have they decided to play venues that are only marginally bigger than a shoebox? This is now my McEverest, and the possibility that I might not succeed is almost too much to handle. Pray for me.

3. CONFIDENCE
Oh who am I KIDDING. I’m a ticket buying wizz anyway, and when it comes to McFly there’s nothing that will get in my way. I’ve been to every single tour so far, and Anthology is not about to ruin my perfect score. Has anyone even said they were a fan of McFly since about 2005? It’s only me and my weird friends who still like them. Oh I AM TICKETS.

4. DETERMINATION
Time to channel Rocky, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mike Tyson all at once into my ticket buying abilities. I’ve set up camp from around 8am, I’m armed with provisional snacks, I’ve had extra strong coffee to make sure I’m at peak concentration level. There’s even some work outs going on for my clicking finger.

5. ANXIETY
Since WHEN does Ticketmaster have that incredibly stressful countdown clock. THERE’S THREE MINUTES TO GO. Is this what palpitations feel like? Am I having a stroke? Dougie Poynter, you are going to cause my demise. Although I did always know that my death would be McFly related so this all makes sense really.

6. PANIC
9AM. AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH. F**KING REFRESH.
…keep reading.
