FM formed in 1984 and quickly hit the road touring with the likes of Meat Loaf, Tina
Turner, Foreigner, Gary Moore, Status Quo and the white-hot Bon Jovi on their
"Slippery When Wet" tour. Their debut album INDISCREET was released in 1986 to
great critical acclaim.
For the next 12 years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic
rock, touring everywhere they could to promote releases such as 1989's TOUGH IT
OUT album and 1992's APHRODISIAC.
In 2007 - after a 12 year sabbatical - FM returned to the stage with a headline
performance at a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City. This was followed in
March 2010 by the release of their much-anticipated sixth studio album METROPOLIS.
The next two years saw FM touring extensively including two appearances at UK
festival Download and sets at Sweden Rock, HRH, Rock The Nation and Graspop.
In Spring 2013 FM released a double helping of again critically-acclaimed albums -
ROCKVILLE and companion album ROCKVILLE II and their touring schedule for the
year included a headline UK tour and appearances at UK festivals HRH AOR, Steelhouse
Festival and Planet Rockstock, and Hi-Rock in Germany.
Tracks from the ROCKVILLE albums were playlisted on radio stations worldwide
throughout 2013, including "Story Of My Life" on BBC Radio 2, "Bad Addiction" on
Planet Rock and "Crosstown Train" on Bloodstock Radio and Hard Rock Nights. Closing
2013, "Better Late Than Never" was added to the BBC Radio 2 playlist from 26
2014 will be another busy year for FM…
Currently writing and recording for their next album, they started the year with a set at
the Giants of Rock festival in Minehead on 8 February. FM then toured the UK with
Foreigner and Europe during March / April 2014, with further European dates alongside
Foreigner in Belgium and France. Following the Foreigner tour FM head straight out for
a series of headline shows in Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Portugal, taking them
into May. A new EP entitled FUTURAMA was released on 31 March to coincide with
these live dates.
The latter half of 2014 features the start of FM's 30th Anniversary celebrations, which
will see the band headlining Cambridge Rock Festival on 9 August preceded the day
before by a show at Warehouse23 in Wakefield, followed by a UK tour in November.
