The Resurrection of McFly

McFly are back?!


So McFly are back, well kinda. If you’ve been living under a rock then you might not know that McFly have announced their comeback! They’re giving us Galaxy Defenders what we’ve been waiting NINE YEARS FOR! NEW MUSIC! Or technically old music.

Above The Noise was their last album and was released in 2010. However, whilst we all sat patiently waiting for YEARS for the mystery album 6, it never came. They’d say it was definitely coming that year and it never did. They kept telling us this, and they’d post about going off to record the album again and again, but the album never came.

In 2013, McBusted emerged. Which did provide us new music, but it wasn’t McFly. It wasn’t the same. So us fans sat for longer patiently waiting for new music and then the band were on hiatus. McBusted lasted for two years, and it was heartbreaking. In 2017 they did their Anthology Tour where they played every album in full back to back. After that it was radio silence from the band as a whole.

However, a couple of weeks ago they posted a cryptic video that had a lot of the fandom in a meltdown. They then updated their profile picture on their socials, the photo was the radio:ACTIVE microphone which led a lot of people to speculate if it was something to do with the 2008 album that included the hits such as Lies and One For The Radio.

However, what it really signified was that the radio silence was over and they were now radio active.

They announced a one off show in London which when it went on general sale sold out nearly instantly. At the same time as the show announcement they announced that every Sunday leading up to the show at The O2 in London they would be releasing a new song, the songs from the phantom album 6.

So far we’ve had Red, Touch The Rain and We Were Only Kids. All of which i’m absolutely head over heels in love with.

I’m so glad that the lads are back and i’m excited to hear the rest of the songs that are to come.

Also to add to the excitement, on top of all of this amazing, exciting stuff, they’ve also announced that in 2020 they will be embarking on a UK tour. I will not be attending because I am broke and can not afford to buy a ticket, but I am happy that they are back and they are back to doing what us Galaxy Defenders love.

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…
