A manifesto, declaration and a statement of intent all wrapped into one, ‘Where Did All The Guitars Go?’ is the perfect summation of McFly’s mindset right now, and with riffs front and centre, it’s the first taste of this thrilling new era of the band.
Describing the single and the forthcoming record, McFly added:
“At the start of the process, we all got together and said what we wanted this new album to be. We all had this one thing in common, and it was guitars. We love being on tour and playing live, and we hate this weird pressure where you don’t get played on the radio if you have guitars in your songs. That was always in the back of our heads, so we decided to forget all about it and that same day Tom wrote ‘Where Did All The Guitars Go?’ on the way home. On every album, there’s a song which becomes a foundation, a lightbulb moment, and this was it. Guitars, honesty, energy, all these personality traits are what give us the band’s identity. We want to reach that kid with long hair, get them excited about music and make them want to pick up a guitar and jump on their bed. That’s what this record is about.”
‘Power To Play’ is their biggest, boldest and most brilliantly noisy statement yet. Their highly anticipated 7th album is an all-out celebration of rock music and will be released on June 9th, via BMG. Pre-order Power To Play here.
