McFly are set to bring their loud guitars, party rock anthems and celebration of rock music to Camden on June 8th for their very special Power To Play Album Launch Show. Tickets are on sale from tomorrow, May 16th, at 10am, and will be available here..

The Power To Play Album Launch Show gives fans the chance to hear tracks from the album live for the first time on the eve of its release. With a capacity of just 500, it is also a rare chance to see McFly up close, in an intimate venue. The Underworld, Camden is one of the most iconic rock and alternative venues in the UK and has previously played host to some of McFly’s guitar heroes including Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age, Fall Out Boy, The Darkness and Slash’s Snakepit.

The British four-piece cannot wait to bring Power To Play to the Underworld and add:

“We’re buzzing to be launching ‘Power to Play’ at such an iconic venue by doing the thing that inspired it the most – playing live! This will be the first time playing the new songs for anyone other than ourselves, we can’t wait to see the crowd reaction. Its going to be a sweaty one!” 

McFly returned last month with another killer single, ‘God Of Rock & Roll‘. It was the second track to be revealed from new album, ‘Power To Play’, 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.

With production, songwriting and design talent all within the band, this record sees them make the record they have always wanted to make. Produced by Danny, alongside their good friend Jason Perry, the album is full of hair metal cheese, glam rock glitter and heavy metal attitude with hints of Van Halen, Mötley Crue, Poison and Def Leppard. They launched the album with the brilliant, ‘Where Did All The Guitars Go?’ – watch the video here.

Later on in the year, McFly bring ‘Power To Play’ to the larger stage and tour the UK and beyond. They have announced multiple dates, kicking off in Bristol on 23rd October, and wrapping up at Nottingham’s Rock City on November 22nd. They will play London’s Alexandra Palace on 27th October. Tickets are now on sale here.

Undoubtedly one of the UK’s most successful bands, McFly have scored seven #1 singles, released six albums, two of which were chart-toppers and have played thousands of sold-out shows. They have sold over 10 million records worldwide, won numerous awards including a BRIT for Best Pop Act, have over 1.2 million monthly Spotify listeners and have picked up over 91 million views on their YouTube channel.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
