Blink-182's Mark Hoppus writes 'cool songs' with McBusted
Dougie Poynter reveals pop supergroup are also collaborating with All Time Low
The group are penning original material together after first forming for an arena tour earlier this year, in which songs from both bands' back catalogues were performed.
The news was revealed by Dougie Poynter, originally of McFly, during a Twitter conversation with a fan earlier today (August 26). Asked how excited he was about making an album with McBusted, he responded affirmatively and confirmed that writing sessions with both Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth of US pop-punks All Time Low had taken place.
McBusted previously suggested they would not record together with Tom Fletcher of McFly saying, "For now it's just the tour, but if we come up with something and write some songs that we think are incredible, then we'll release it," at a London press conference in 2013.
