FM’s first public appearance in the UK on Valentines Day of 1985 was swiftly followed by the release of their debut album, ‘Indiscreet.’ FM hit the road in Europe supporting the likes of Tina Turner, Foreigner & Bon Jovi. For the next 12 years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock until 1996, when the band decided to call it a day. Reforming in 2007, this year has seen them release their highly-acclaimed 7th album ‘Rockville’ & play to packed houses across the UK.
