The boys will head to America in September after completing work on their new studio album

McFly are taking their cue from The Wanted by scheduling several “small shows” in America.

Billboard reports that the ‘Shine a Light’ band will fly to America in September to play a small number of intimate concerts. It’s hoped that the gigs will boost the profile of the band in the same way that One Direction and The Wanted managed.

Lead singer Tom Fletcher said: “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 UK.

“It’s amazing that they are so dedicated. So I think we owe it to them to come over.”

McFly have only ever released one album in America, titled ‘Just My Luck’, from the dreadful Lindsay Lohan film. They’ve never toured the US in the years they have been together.

Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have been instrumental in raising the profile of UK bands in America, allowing fans to interact with stars on a regular basis.

Here’s hoping that McFly manage to find success over there. If One Direction can manage to do it, McFly are in with a strong chance.
