McFly are set to reunite in 2019, it has been revealed.
Band member Dougie Poynter has confirmed that he’ll reunite with Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, and Harry Judd this year to start working on new music – nine years after they released their last studio album Above The Noise.
Speaking on the ‘Sappenin podcast, the bassist said: “McFly will at least start writing by the summer and I can’t wait. I love that band and I love the guys. It’s awesome.”
Dougie went on to explain that they were supposed to reunite last year, but it didn’t work out.

He said: “We decided to take some time off after we did McBusted because it was a two-year tour and there was naturally some other things everyone wanted to do.
“It actually worked out really well because all the other guys had kids in that time, so they’ve all been home for their kids.
“It almost happened last year but someone had a project or something that was coming up smack bang in the middle. And we just didn’t think there was any point.”
McFly first started performing in 2004, and they went on to secure seven UK No1 singles.
They also teamed up with fellow English pop-punk band Busted for a joint album in 2014, and went on tour with them.
