The announcement follows the band’s return to touring in 2019 with their comeback show at London’s O2 which sold out in just seconds, and a successful year of playing a number of UK summer festivals in 2021 and 2022.


It looks set to be another great year for the band, with the release of their highly anticipated seventh studio album and more dates confirmed for live performances.

The band took their name from the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, and are best known for their hits 5 Colours in Her Hair, All About You and Star Girl, all of which are among their number ones.
