Hopefully we’ll hear some new McFly music soon!

McFly’s bassist Dougie Poynter says the group have done a lot of “hard” work on the sixth album, but won’t be rush releasing it

McFly have finished a “good chunk” of their new album.

The ‘All About You’ group – which also features Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter – haven’t released a new record since ‘Above the Noise’ in 2010, and the hunky bass player says they are well on the way to completing their sixth studio effort, but he says they won’t be rushing to release it.

He told The Sun newspaper: Writing is fun but it’s hard.

“It takes a lot of time but we were away for a while.

“It won’t be out until it’s ready but we got a good chunk done.”

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old rocker is set to star in upcoming British film ‘The Academy’ after he landed the part after taking acting lessons and successfully auditioning to play superhero Hale, who is “captured in a big plot twist”, and has teased that he has more movie work in the pipeline.

He added: “I’ve started shooting the film.

“That’s here in the UK. There are other things too, but I can’t say. I’m very excited.”

A previous update on their eagerly-anticipated record came from drummer Harry, 31, in December, who said their break made them a better band.

At the time, he said: “We definitely want to keep progressing and growing as a band. Danny has been working a lot in the studio this year in production, Tom is a brilliant writer and Dougie has been out acting and doing other things so he’ll be bringing in some new influences and stuff.

“There are already a couple of songs that I think we’ve got that we all love, and hopefully we’ll all be going in the same direction.”

Tom’s videos never disappoint:)

McFly’s Tom Fletcher has created a video to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s birthday, and it’ll melt even the coldest of hearts.

After delivering a musical wedding speech for the ages and a Mother’s Day video to make everyone rethink their Michael Buble purchases, the 31-year-old has whipped up another reel to raise expectations of men everywhere.

This time, Tom has decided to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s 32nd birthday in a video titled ‘All About Gi’ – which brings together all the highlights of her career and personal life into one adorable package.

Starting from when they met at school aged 13, the video journeys through old photographs as they traverse their relationship – marking major milestones such as moving in together, getting married and having kids.

Speaking about their first meeting, Tom said: ‘We first met at school. We were both 13 and just by chance our surnames began with the same letter, me Fletcher, she Falcone, which meant fate brought us together in assembly on her first day at school.

‘And it was on that exact same spot that I proposed and we got engaged. That spot held a lot of significance and relevance that we didn’t know at the time.’

After the video cycles through footage of the pair growing up together, Tom lays the final emotional smackdown to ensure husband envy worldwide.

‘I’m not really one to celebrate my own birthday, but I think as we get older, and as I see you getting older, I really start to see the importance of celebrating it.

‘A whole year has gone by in your life and if you look back at what you’ve achieved in just this year, since your last birthday, I mean it’s pretty amazing.

‘And if that’s not something to celebrate, then, what is?’

2-4-1 Pizza Express isn’t going to cut it this year, is it? Heaven’s sake, Tom.

Harry is giving the new Busted album a 9/10 apparently. Which song do you think he doesn’t like?

Harry Judd has admitted he’s not a fan of one of Busted’s songs on their new album ‘Night Driver’

Harry Judd told Busted’s Matt Willis there is only one song on their new album ‘Night Driver’ which he skipped.

The McFly drummer was all “fired up” after hearing their comeback LP – their first in three years since 2003’s ‘A Present for Everyone’ – and is thrilled the trio are back with together as a three with Charlie Simpson, who quit the rock/pop group in 2005 and previously vowed never to return.

And, although he hasn’t named the track, he admits he feels “rude” for pointing it out.

Asked if he’s heard the new record, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “I have checked it out actually I was on What’s App with Matt [Willis] and James [Bourne] just the other day just to take a moment to congratulate them and tell them I was loving the album.

“It’s really cool I was saying to Matt there was only one song that I skip which is pretty good going.

“He was like, ‘Which song?’ And then I was like, ‘I can’t say, I already regret saying it because it’s quite rude!’

“I’m genuinely loving it and it’s good to have them back as a three. The Busted album has got me fired up.”

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old sticksman recently revealed ‘Getting It Out’, from Busted/McFly supergroup McBusted’s 2014 self-titled LP, will be on McFly’s new album.

He previously said: “One of the songs from album six ended up on the McBusted album, which was ‘Getting It Out’. We recorded it in Texas but then recorded it for the McBusted album.”

And Harry recently admitted that McFly fans “hated” McBusted – which was also comprised of Busted’s Matt and James and himself, Tom, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones.

The hunky rocker says they are keen to get new music out because their fans were “frustrated” with the ‘Air Guitar’ band.

He said: “It’s been a while since we have just been McFly and a lot of our fans are frustrated.

“Although McBusted has been a success, a lot of McFly fans were like, ‘I hate McBusted!'”

MCFLY’s Harry Judd delighted fans when he announced the birth of his first child, at the beginning of this year.

Tom Fletcher’s pal, and his wife Izzy, have been open about their struggle to conceive naturally.
The pair, who recently celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary, were also left heartbroken after suffering a miscarriage, following their first attempt at IVF.

And, speaking exclusively to OK! Online, the It’s All About You singer admitted they were hoping to expand their family in the future.

“We’d love a big family,” he revealed, on the red carpet of the Pride Of Sport awards.

“We spent long enough trying to get the first one, so we’ll see.

“If we’re lucky enough, we’d love to have another baby.”

Harry and Izzy met back in 2005, when the former violinist appeared in the string section of McFly’s tour.
They tied the knot seven years later, in an intimate ceremony in Hertfordshire.

However, the couple have endured a difficult path to parenthood, after the musician was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries.

They went through the heartbreak of a miscarriage, in 2014, before trying IVF treatments to start their family.

But Harry revealed they are putting the sad memories behind them to make Lola’s first festive period exciting.

Discussing how they were planning to mark her first Christmas, he added: “We’ve got her some presents.

“We’re at Izzy’s for the first Christmas, and we’ve been buying her some presents – even though she has no idea what they are.

“We’re still hiding them from her!”

“She’s going to be 11 months, I think they just enjoy the wrapping, but it’s a novelty for us!”

Their little one’s birth sparked a double celebration for the band, as Tom Fletcher’s son, Buddy, was born just weeks after Lola.

And the 30 year old has been giving fans adorable glimpses into his life as a new dad.

Earlier this year, he melted fans’ hearts as he took to Instagram with a beautiful snap of himself and his daughter.

He posted a photo of her strapped to his chest, while he practised drumming, with his 563k followers.
The drummer described the position as his “happy place”.

Dougie Poynter’s pal also posted a photo just weeks ago, revealing she had already picked up on his musical genes.
He uploaded an adorable picture of their journey to “a class”.

“Taking the little one to a class,” he captioned the shot.

“She loves music and is already bobbing up and down, swaying from side to side, throwing her hands in the air and sometimes chucks in a jive kick.”

First of all, Merry Xmas everyone!!!
And as a gift for you all this xmas, here’s a new interview and photoshoot of Dougie with 1883 Magazine, he talks McFly, tour, LA, acting… you can see by yourself reading it below. I also added all the pics from the photoshoot to the gallery so you can enjoy the view too:P

All the credit for the pics goes to Asia Werbel.

[x19]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > 1883 MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOOT

Dougie Poynter first burst onto the scene back in 2004 as one quarter of beloved pop band McFly when he was just a young teen. In their career, spanning over fourteen years, the band has amassed 19 top 10 singles, 5 albums and have just completed their 14th tour in September, after postponing it due to Harry Judd slipping a disc.

1883 caught up with McFly’s charming bass guitarist, after making him swing from a few metal poles, to talk the recent tour, being a musical influence, warming up in LA and what the actual hell is a Mary Berry!

Hey, thanks for swinging around on those metal poles for us.

[Laughs] No problem!

At least you don’t have to go to the gym today. That’s arm day done!

Working out I usually suck at it but that was the one thing I’m actually good at.

So, today’s shoot was fine for you then!

Yeah, if it was anything to do with legs, I would’ve sucked.

Leg day is awful though.

Leg is horrible! But I’m constantly doing leg day though, because these things just will not get any bigger.

Oh, really?

I’m an ectomorph.

What’s that?

It one of the figures, there’s like ectomorph and endomorph. I’m definitely ectomorph, I just burn it all off.

That’s convenient at Christmas time, you can just pig out and its fine.

Yeah but not for a dude though, but I guess so [laughs].

So, you’ve finished touring…

Yeah finished touring about three months ago, is it three? I think it’s three months ago now.

And you’ve just released your live album called anthology off the back of that, so how was touring as just McFly instead of as a super group?

Touring was cool, it was really cool. It’s always good fun to hang with the guys it was going form a really big production that was McBusted which was like every single song had some kind of big production element to it. To go back to literally like zero production. In fact, I think we didn’t even have a truck on this tour we just had like a trailer with just amplifiers in it. We didn’t take our own PA we just used the house PA.

Did it feel weird to return to four after 18 months as being a pretty big group?

No actually because McBusted was 18 months McFly has been 13, 14 years. So, it didn’t really feel weird at all.

How did it feel revisiting some of your older songs, some of which you have never played live before?

The most stressful thing was playing 66 songs in total over three nights, I mean that’s a lot to remember.

Were there any songs where you forgot the chords and the lyrics?

Oh, yeah there was some songs I hadn’t played since I was 16. The only thing that was going through my head the entire time was don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up!

I mean that’s a pretty solid motto! How did you think your music has evolved and changed with you?

Sorry, my hands smell odd, probably swinging from the poles. But yeah everything seems to be a reaction to the previous. In every single way from the way we play it to the types of songs that they are. Everything is a reaction to the last one right up until our last album that we released six years ago.

Do you think they represent the stages of your life you were at when you made them or not?

I think you can definitely tell like what was going through our heads. I mean they’re all about girls [laughs].

Since this tour was about looking back over what you’ve done, what would you say to your younger self?

Mmhhh. I don’t know there’s a lot but is it really a good idea to go back in time and change things? I don’t know.

Umm, whatever it is don’t do it. If you think it’s a bad idea it probably is.
…keep reading.

Dougie recently did an interview and a photoshoot with the photographer Thomas Wood where he talks about photography, his life in L.A. and acting. You can read it below and check all the pics on the gallery.

[x12]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > THOMAS WOOD PHOTOSHOOT

Thomas Wood: How’re you finding it being back in the UK?

Dougie Poynter: Hate it! It’s been like this for days – not quite rain but just spitting and I suck with the jetlag out here. I’m okay.. I’m not getting up too late but 10am for me is late. So I’m absolutely knackered and not waking up naturally at all, and I’ve got an old alarm clock. You know the style with the bell? Going absolutely nuts! My bed’s on a mezzanine level and it sometimes falls off that and lands in the living room. So yeah, not really enjoying being back at the moment.

Tom: Yeah we both flew back from LA on the same day, I feel we’re in a very similar mindset. Are you just starting to get back into that day to day routine here?

Dougie: Yeah, I’ve sort of hit the ground running coming back here with work pretty much straight away. I think I had a to day to try and settle and then went straight back into acting classes here. What else was there, there’s been a couple of events.

Tom: I think the British Fashion Awards stand out to me. How were they?

Dougie: Oh yeah, Haha! Yeah, so there was that thing. Which was really cool! I think that was a couple of days after I’d come back.

Tom: Which I suppose helps coming back knowing you’ve got things to do. Although do you find events like that enjoyable or is it sometimes more of a chore?

Dougie: No, no! I enjoy it! Especially with the jet lag as that actually works in your favour then. You’re hanging out at you know, 12 at night and the awards are going on and I was completely wide-awake. Usually by 1am I’m done. I’m like ‘I cannot keep my eyes open I have to leave!’ But I found myself at the after party until 4am, just chatting because I was completely wide-awake. It was at the Royal Albert Hall so it felt really grand and epic!

Tom: Hah! Yeah totally get that, really eccentric. It looked amazing. I saw one image of the stairs leading up to the hall that looked incredible.

Dougie: Oh yeah! Dude, it was like you were going to the opera back in the early 1900’s or something. Everyone’s dressed in their best and you walk through these grand entrances and past the Royal Albert Hall organs. All of the designers are literally in one place, which is fucking cool. And there’s some big names there too: – to see people like that I’m always like ‘Fuck! Those people have had a huge impact on culture and they’ve done so much with their lives and it’s really fucking awesome’

Tom: Yeah, I love shit like that. Always really motivating, I think. It’s great you’ve had bits to come back to though and have a bit of a routine. Like where I live not much goes on, it’s a bit of a ghost town in creative and artistic sense. LA was right at the other end of that spectrum, everyone seems to be pushing boundaries all the time and there’s so much good energy.

Dougie: Dude, it’s everywhere, right? Like even the other night in LA when we went for dinner.

Tom: At café 101? The really art deco design and general vibe of there was cool.

Dougie: Yeah café 101. There’s just something about that kind of space that doesn’t feel like it’s from now, like they’ve literally kept it in a time warp.

…keep reading.
