McFly growing as a band
McFly want to progress and grow, and drummer Harry Judd thinks the different endeavours they have pursued while on a break will help them make a better album
Harry Judd thinks McFly's break will make them a better band.
The 'All About You' group - which also features Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter - haven't released a new album since 'Above the Noise' in 2010 and the drummer thinks their years of experience means they're in a great place when it comes to putting a new record together.
He said: "We definitely want to keep progressing and growing as a band. Danny has been working a lot in the studio this year in production, Tom is a brilliant writer and Dougie has been out acting and doing other things so he'll be bringing in some new influences and stuff.
"There are already a couple of songs that I think we've got that we all love, and hopefully we'll all be going in the same direction.
"We have so much stuff that's unreleased, and we have the power of hindsight now and we can say, 'No that's wrong, that's wrong, that's right.' And we can take elements of what has worked and put it all together."
The band last went into the studio with James Bourne and Matt Willis as their supergroup McBusted to record their 2014 self-titled album, and Harry admits their fans are more than ready to hear some new McFly music.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "We're writing in January and I'm very excited, I think the fans have waited a long time for new McFly music. Even though we said we were writing in January the fans keep on tweeting me and to say, 'Really? Is this really happening?' It is definitely happening."
