The UK’s finest Melodic Rock band FM will join forces with Hard Rock group The Quireboys in early April next year for seven tour dates that celebrate 35 years since both acts started out. These two venerable institutions will be joined by Bad Touch and Vega. Hot on the heels of their 10th studio album, ‘Atomic Generation’, FM began the tour cycle to promote it with an appearance at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan in April 2018. Performing a set that included new songs, fan favourites, plus some surprise song choices, the band’s showmanship was faultless and mind-blowing. The rhythm section of Pete Jupp and Merv Goldsworthy didn’t miss a beat, guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick and keyboardist Jem Davis produced rich sonic tapestries with their instruments, while singer Steve Overland was simply breathtaking, demonstrating why he is one of the truly legendary voices in Melodic Rock. ‘The Italian Job’, due to be released next year on Friday 22nd February documents this show. An absolute gem of an album, it is unmissable not only for FM followers, but for all fans of the genre.
