Merry Christmas from FM

As the sun begins to set on 2015 and the Christmas celebrations go into full swing we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued and unwavering support again this past 12 months. Since our return at Firefest 2007 we never imagined what an amazing journey we were embarking on. This past year has probably been our busiest ever with our Heroes & Villains album release and it being received so well by the press and fans, massive radio support from Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2 plus lots of internet stations. Our touring schedule builds every year, we were especially delighted to have completed a very successful, and our first ever, European headline tour back in November. We spent the summer playing festivals in the UK and Europe and ended our 2015 live commitments by headlining Friday night at Planet Rockstock.

2016 looks to continue the same busy path with more shows on our Heroes & Villains tour in January, for which we will be joined by Special Guests Romeo's Daughter, The King Lot, Bernie Marsden and No Hot Ashes. Rockweekend AOR and Vasby festivals in Sweden have been added in February and July, and there are some very exciting opportunities in the pipeline which will be announced shortly.

We'd like to thank everyone behind the scenes at Strangeworld Management, X Ray Touring, Frontiers, Dark Green Music and Turner Spear for all their hard work and encouragement.

Lastly and most importantly we'd again like to thank you all for giving us the opportunity and the purpose to continue making music together.

We sincerely wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year. 

Steve, Merv, Pete, Jem and Jim.
