"We are absolutely delighted to confirm IT BITES, VEGA and SERPENTINE will be joining us on the road in March when we tour for our new album ROCKVILLE" says Merv. "Special Guests for our first four shows 15th-18th March are Vega and Serpentine, and for the shows 20th-23rd March our Special Guests will be It Bites and Vega."
"It's been quite a few years since we last shared a stage with It Bites, Reading Festival in 1986 to be exact" adds Merv. "We're looking forward to catching up with them again! They're making fantastic albums and it's going to be a real pleasure to have them on the road with us." It Bites have long been firm favourites for lovers of finely-crafted music. Check out the EPK for their 2012 album MAP OF THE PAST.
Serpentine are currently hard at work preparing their follow-up to 2011's LIVING AND DYING IN HIGH DEFINITION. "It's an honour and a privilege to tour with FM, a band we've listened to as we've grown up and look up to as legends in the melodic rock genre. We'll be looking forward to bringing our best performances to some cities we've never played before as well as some we'll be lucky enough to revisit; this is an opportunity we'll definitely be making the most of!"
