Busted, the pop trio, are back and have announced a UK headline tour which they’re bringing to Folkestone, following the release of their brand new single in over a decade, On What You’re On.

The 21 date tour announcement comes ahead of the release of their eagerly anticipated third album Night Driver, on November 11.

Charlie Simpson, the band’s lead vocalist, said: “We can’t 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, the two-time BRIT Award winning trio reunited almost by accident and discovered they each had a fresh perspective both personally and musically.

“As soon as we started making music it became apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing,” Matt Willis said. “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 Bourne said: “The last thing we wanted to do was try to recreate what we used to have. It belongs to that time. All real artists evolve, all real artists try things, it’s unnatural not to.”

Charlie, Matt and James first broke onto the music scene in 2002 with their tongue-in-cheek ode to Matt’ 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.

Tickets for the band’s ONLY Kent date at Folkestone’s Leas Cliff Hall are on-sale from 9am on Friday October 14.

Tickets start from £30.75.
