McFly

McFly are reportedly close to signing a new record deal in the US, after recently playing their first shows in North America for nearly a decade. The McFly boys have self-released some of their recent releases after completing their original record contract with Universal’s Island Records, though do still work with the mega-major on some projects.

The band’s Tom Fletcher told The Daily Star: “They were the first American live shows we’d done in nine years, and all four sold out straight away. But we don’t have a record deal there. We wanted to get people down to watch us so they can see how McFly are in their mid-20s. We got a lot of interest from labels. They are waiting to hear the new stuff. It’s weird because we don’t know how we might fit in over there now. Are we more Maroon 5 or One Direction these days?”
