Busted will release their new album, Half Way There, on February 8th. According to the press release, they’re going back to a pop-punk sound:
A rush of melody and effervescent riffs that see the band blend huge arena-filling choruses with the classic pop-punk sound of Blink 182 and New Found Glory. Lyrically it’s often reflective and nostalgic (‘Reunion’, ‘All My Friends’ and a mini Busted autobiography in the shape of ‘It Happens’), but there are some fantastical flights of fancy too in the shape of ‘Shipwrecked In Atlantis’ and a tribute to Elon Musk in ‘Race To Mars’. Aside from the new album, Busted have also confirmed the details of a major UK arena tour scheduled for March 2019.
