Dougie Poynter is now in a band that isn't McFly and it's certainly very different

Everything you need to know about Ink.

DOUGIE POYNTER HAS released an EP with new band INK.

Now, you’re probably like, “wtf? Was he not in McFly? And then later in the noughties teenage wet-dream supergroup McBusted?” And you’d be right. But he’s at other things now, and it’s time to move on Sharon.

Dougie’s teamed up with his two mates Todd Dorigo – a former solo artist who has toured with The Libertines’ Carl Barat – and drummer Corey Alexander, for INK’s debut EP ‘Heaven’.

Ok, but how’s it different from McFly?

INK.’s music sounds nothing like anything they lads have done before … And as it turns out, they can’t describe it themselves.

The lads told 1883 Magazine:

Other people seem to be able to describe it for us. We have heard so many different things. It’s so subjective, some people are like you’re Depeche Mode and then other people think we are this Post-Punk thing and we’re just like whatever, it is what it is.
We didn’t go out to be like anyone, we are just doing songs that we like.”

Fair enough.

They also might be touring, so keep your eyes peeled for live dates.

We’d like to play live, that’s the best part of playing in a band, playing live. The sooner we can do that, the better.”

There’s another EP coming later in the year, but for now, listen to ‘Heaven’ here.
