April 2008 News Update

From the pen of Steve Overland...

Hi everybody,

I hope you’re all keeping well and it’s nice to talk to you all again.  Sorry this month’s news is a little late but the lovely Dawn has been away the past couple of weeks.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a few words about the "Overland" album which is due for release on May 21st.  The album is titled "Breakaway" and I’m extremely happy with the way it’s turned out.  It was recorded in Sweden last summer at co-writer/producer Anders Rydholm's studio.  It features some great musicians - the Bissonette brothers, Anders himself, a fantastic young Swedish guitar player named Ola and a great singer Per Svenson on background vocals and of course me.  The songs are very powerful as well as melodic and although different from FM they are still in the same mould.  I think you’ll really enjoy the record and here are the titles of the 12 tracks:

This time
Alive and Kicking
Like a River
Look into your Eyes
After the Fire
Heartache Calling
Mad, Mad World
Lost in Paradise
Rescue Me
Until Forever Comes

As I said earlier all the tracks are written with Anders and I hope you enjoy the record.


Onto FM news, the website shop is nearing completion and should open in the near future, we’ll post its opening date very soon.  You’ll be able to buy an exclusive signed copy of "Breakaway" through the FM shop.

FM have been hard in rehearsals down at Papa Joe’s arranging some new songs and they’re coming along really well.  The live DVD, despite a few technical glitches, is really coming together now and looking and sounding great. Be patient with us, we’re working really hard on getting the new album and DVD together and I’m sure the wait will be worth it.  Talking of which, it’s time to get back to writing songs for the new album for me and the lads.

All the best,
