The 'Party Girl' group have changed their sound dramatically over their career, going from guitar pop to rock and now having a dance music influenced sound; but singer and guitarist Danny Jones sees their long term future in either a glam rock or heavy metal.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I reckon in 10 or 15 years we'll either be like Kiss or Slipknot where we have to cover ourselves up in all sorts of makeup. That'll be the way."
His bandmate, frontman Tom Fletcher, is a little less sure, saying he likes to take each new album as it comes.
He said: "It's hard to tell how we'll be in 10 years time, this time two or three years ago we'd never have imagined this album to be like it is, and each time we go into the studio and record an album you never really know what it's going to come out like, or what influences we're going to be into."
McFly - which also includes bass player Dougie Poynter and drummer Harry - release their seventh album 'Above The Noise' in the UK on November 15.
