After the announcement of their highly anticipated album “Power to Play,” McFly have released the second single of the new era “God of Rock & Roll”!

“God of Rock & Roll” is an incredibly fun track that defines the bands new era perfectly. After the release of “Where Did All The Guitars Go” a fews weeks ago, fans have had a good insight into the direction the band are taking the new album. Both singles so far has been filled with face-melting guitar solos, insane vocals, and infectious lyricism. You’ll want to dust of that air guitar of yours because it’s impossible not to have one at hand when hearing these tracks, and there’s only more to come.

On the new single, the band explain;

“Once we had landed on the fact that we were going to do 80s rock, there was just something in it that had such a McFlyness within it. High concept, guitars front and centre, colourful. It’s all the things we have always loved about music and what we do with this band. It’s a party rock song at its core, but its seed was that if there was a god of rock and roll, we would undoubtedly be worshipping him. A lot of that came from going to shows ourselves. We all went to see Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer last year and seeing so many people had come to the same place to enjoy rock music was incredible. Rock music celebrates life and having fun, and it feels like we all got deprived of that for such a long time.”

A music video was also released alongside the single, and it is just as fun-loving as the track itself. Watch as McFly dance around in body art via YouTube below;
