15th November 2010. That was the last time, almost 10 years to the day, that McFly last released a full studio album. Said album - Above the Noise - is probably still up there with Spice Girls' Forever and The Human League's Crash as a potentially brilliant but wonkily executed tap into an unexpected territory … Continue reading #CrazyStupidAlbum: McFly (@mcflymusic) – ‘Young Dumb Thrills’
Whilst their arena tour that followed their well recieved comeback show at London's O2 last November has - for obvious reasons - been put back, some good news came for McFly fans on Monday.

Hi all, So I've just returned from several days in glorious Richmond upon Thames with my sister and brother in law - more on that later. But I wanted to do something a little bit fun for this new post. I love Tom Fletcher (he of McFly and McBusted fame, and viral wedding speech ubër … Continue reading 50 Questions (in the almost style of Tom Fletcher)
