McFly are back with a new single and have announced a UK tour for 2023.

Get ready to rock out with the guitar-driven sound of their new songs.

The single is called God Of Rock & Roll and sees the band returning to their roots. 

Tickets for the UK tour go on general sale from 5th May.

The tour is a different one for McFly, leaving behind the arenas they usually play to do an "underplay" tour, in iconic rock'n'roll venues like Rock City in Nottingham and Barrowlands in Glasgow.

The band will also play the famous Alexandra Palace for the first time ever.

If you want to get your hand on tickets early, then pre-order the album for a pre-sale code.

Talking about the new single, McFly say: “Once we had landed on the fact that we were going to do 80s rock, there was just something in it that had such a McFlyness within it. High concept, guitars front and centre, colourful. It’s all the things we have always loved about music and what we do with this band.

"It’s a party rock song at its core, but its seed was that if there was a god of rock and roll, we would undoubtedly be worshipping him. A lot of that came from going to shows ourselves. We all went to see Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer last year and seeing so many people had come to the same place to enjoy rock music was incredible. Rock music celebrates life and having fun, and it feels like we all got deprived of that for such a long time.”

The band are releasing a new album, called Power To Play, on June 9th.

The new album sees McFly embracing hair metal in a whole new way, after a comeback with a single called Where Did All The Guitars Go.
