Obligatory comment about how Fightstar are way better, and Charlie needs to do more Fightstar stuff. AltCorner is the promotional platform for alternative music, documenting upcoming artists and established alternative acts. They wrote more material than ever, much of it at Bourne’s apartment in North London where they spent so much time together back when they first started the band. I'm kind of tempted to listen now to see what it's like, but I don't want Busted to end up as one of my artists on Spotify or have them constantly come up in my suggested videos on YouTube (which has happened in the past previous times I've checked out artists due to curiosity). While Night Driver was an interesting sonic diversion, Half Way There gets back to doing what the band does best.

Again I find it hard to tell if I’m enjoying it, i’m sneering at it a lot but also smiling so I guess I’m enjoying myself. These are child-friendly songs that talk about how great the band’s childhood was; reaching for their dreams; and getting that girl.As good as Night Driver was as an album and it showed a totally different style to Busted than we was used to, Half Way there, is truly the Busted we know and love. People might think they do, but given that the entire purpose of Busted is and was always to get those nostalgia glands throbbing, it’s not exactly a reliable conclusion to draw. We loved it, but I think for a fan wanting to hear Busted again, people had to readjust their mind as to what they were hearing. The track "What Happened to Your Band" was previously performed live by one of James Bourne's other bands, Son of Dork back in 2007.

People who are commenting about fightstar, you do know Busted are better and bring in more money, right?From first single and lead album track ‘ Nineties’ and all of its retro references to the album’s closing number ‘ It Happens’, which serves as a pseudo autobiography for the band and their career to date, Half Way There is very much about looking back and remembering the good old days – which is great if you’re already a fan of the band, but doesn’t lend itself well to attracting new audiences in a time when so many pop artists are experimenting with their style and developing their sound. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Bubblegum pop, exaggerated-Americana vocals, the soundtrack to many a millenial’s youth, Busted are what they are, and on ‘Half Way There’, they’ve completely accepted that.

In May that year, Cobus Potgieter, who had previously stood in as drummer on Busted's 2016 tour, announced that he would be the studio drummer for the upcoming fourth album. Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased. Today, they also announce two extra shows on 24 th March at Newcastle’s o2 Academy and 25 th March in Southampton at O2 Guildhall. Although annoying it’s the gimmick of this song that kinda saves it, in the ‘so trite you can laugh a lot about it’ way. The influence of international groups such as Blink-182 and Sum 41 remains but Busted keep their sound with a distinctly British edge.The started the campaign for the new album by playing three chaotic sold-out shows in a day at the 100 Club, and then dropped a throwback video for ‘Nineties’which revived the days of Top of the Pops, Blind Date, Nirvana and white-suited boy bands. As a side note – Radio could quite possibly be one of the best singles to come out in 2019 – fight me.

Individually, however, there’s a lot to like about these 10 songs, and Busted fans who’ve been there from the beginning are sure to enjoy each and every one.This is our first official single off the record, the other stuff was kind of given out to [the] fan base to kind of entice them, but this is the first 'big boy' single, so enjoy it. James Bourne, Charlie Simpson and Matt Willis approached the new album with a simple goal in mind: “How do we make the ultimate Busted album? It’s judgemental, poorly written and hard to pinpoint a moral or overarching topic beyond lines about where friends are in their lives and how they’re fat now and how the reminisce about bar fights and have faith that they’ll (I’m unsure if they is just the band or the band and their friends) be fine despite being old and drifting towards obscurity. It happens completes the album with reflective lyrics about the band's breakup and how it effected them. Busted have grown-up without growing old with their fourth album ‘Half Way There’ which is out now and currently sitting at Number 2 in the album charts.
