Be still thy beating heart – the Busted boys have just announced a UK headline tour! Following the release of their first new single in over a decade, the disco-tinged ‘On What You’re On’, the pop trio have confirmed a big tour starting early next year ahead of the release of their eagerly anticipated third album ‘Night Driver’.
Charlie said, “We can’t wait wait for people to hear this song and be able to share what we have been working so hard on for the past twelve months.”
Now, with a decade of experiences and newly discovered influences behind them, the two-time BRIT Award winning trio reunited in the studio almost by accident and discovered they each had a fresh perspective both personally and musically. “As soon as we started making music it became very apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing,” Matt says. “That’s what made it so easy. Once James got on the Juno-60 we were like, ‘this is the sound of our record, this is exactly the kind of record I wanna make’.”
James, Matt and Charlie first broke onto the music scene in 2002 with their tongue-in-cheek ode to Matt’s school teacher Miss MacKenzie, ‘What I Go To School For.’ Within just two years the three-piece had become the biggest band in the country, with four number one singles, two triple platinum albums, a total of five million records sold, and over 750,000 ticket sales including and a record-breaking run of thirteen Wembley Arena shows.
