McFly will have new music ready for Anthology Tour

Dougie Poynter has confirmed McFly are working on new music to accompany their 'Anthology Tour' in September.

The 'Obviously' hitmakers are planning to drop their first music in six years in time for the shows following a three-year hiatus, which saw the group team up with Busted's James Bourne and Matt Willis to form the supergroup McBusted.

Of the new music, which will be the first since 2010's 'Above the Noise' LP - the 28-year-old rocker said: "There will be new McFly music.

"There's a few ideas floating around already, we'll hopefully be writing stuff on tour."

The hunky bassist - who is joined by Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd in the band - has assured fans that McFly have no plans to retire anytime soon.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "McFly will always be there.

"They're my family, we're all brothers."

The 'Star Girl' group were forced postpone their tour until September as a result of drummer Harry's herniated disc.

In May, he wrote on Instagram: "I'm absolutely gutted to say that we've had to postpone the tour as I've herniated a disc in my neck.

"I've honestly tried everything to make it work but I'd never want to do a tour where I wouldn't be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night.

"I'm gunna do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we've ever put on! Love Harry, Barry, The Triple D, The not quite as good half of Pudd or whatever it is you wanna call me x #mcfly #itsnotalwayseasy (sic)"

McFly are due to kick off their tour in Manchester with three dates, starting on September 12.

They will conclude their tour in Kentish Town, north London, on September 28.
