While the British pop-rock band McFly has notched 17 top 10 singles and six top 20 albums on the Official U.K. charts since their debut in 2004, most Americans are still unaware of the four cheeky lads.

But that could change come September — when the band has tentative plans to head to the U.S. for a few targeted shows.

“We just want to go over and do some small shows for the fans that we know we have there,” says McFly’s co-lead singer and guitarist Tom Fletcher. “We’ve been wanting to do that for years and years and years and years. But we’ve just never had the opportunity, or something else has come up.”

“We have some fans in America that have been fans for like eight or nine years — right from the beginning — so much so that they fly over to see us in the U.K. It’s amazing that they are so dedicated. So I think we owe it to them to come over.”

McFly has been a blip on the radar in the U.S. — they’ve never toured here and have only properly released one album: 2006’s “Just My Luck.” It was a compilation of previously released songs, and was a tie-in to the Lindsay Lohan film of the same name, which McFly had a role in.

Billboard recently caught up with Fletcher on his tour bus, en route to a gig at the Preston Guild Hall in Preston, England. At the time, the band was about mid-way through its Keep Calm and Play Louder tour, which wraps on April 21 at the O2 Apollo in Manchester. The group will play additional festival shows through the summer, before packing up their bags for the U.S.
