UK supergroup McBusted today announce the release of their first ever, hugely anticipated single, ‘Air Guitar.’
‘Air Guitar’ is an instant manifesto to the massive sound and fun attitude of McBusted as a band in their own right.
Upon their formation, McBusted admitted that “the expectations are so high, we only want to release new music if it’s f*cking good.” Well, ‘Air Guitar’ isn’t f*cking good, it’s f*cking GREAT!
It began with Tom – “I was like, how has this song never been written before?” He then brought the bones of the song to the rest of the band, who instantly leapt upon it. As Matt says; “It’s such a brilliant idea for a song – I was furious when Tom came up with it, obviously. I love it.”
The end result is an undeniable, arms-aloft, Beyoncé quoting rock anthem, from the opening chords to its virtuoso guitar, pounding drums and enormous singalong chorus, all inspiring the listener to unleash their inner rockstar.
McBusted are Matt Willis & James Bourne of Busted, and Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd & Dougie Poynter of McFly. The supergroup embarked on a huge Arena tour earlier this year selling out an astonishing 35 dates and 350,000 tickets. The band crowned the success of the tour with an incredible headline date at Hyde Park to 60,000 people in July.
‘Air Guitar’ follows the exclusive one-day cinema release of ‘Tourplay’, a behind-the-scenes look at the launch of McBusted and their first year as a band. It captures every moment from their first press conference, announcing their formation at the Soho Hotel in November 2013, to a candid backstage look at life on the road during the biggest tour of 2014.
‘Air Guitar’ is available to pre-order now and will be released on 23rd November.
