Merry Christnas to you all!

Guitar Santa
It doesn't seem like a year ago we were feverishly getting ROCKVILLE II finished but here we are again at this festive time of year.  2013 has been another great year for the band - ROCKVILLE and ROCKVILLE II both received rave reviews from every quarter with our live shows receiving the same fantastic response.

Looking forward, 2014 might just be our best year ever... we are already writing and recording for our next album and we have the Foreigner tour and our own headline shows to look forward to in the Spring! There are lots more fantastic opportunities in the pipeline and they will be announced early in 2014.

As always, wholehearted thanks to you all for your brilliant support over the past year - to the finest fans a band could ever wish for and to all the radio stations, magazines and webzines who have encouraged us, cheered us along and been behind us all the way.

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

Steve, Merv, Pete, Jem and Jim. x

HiRock Festival at Inzell today is cancelled.

We are sorry to announce that there will not be a performance by FM this afternoon at HiRock Festival Inzell.

We have been in our bus for six hours for what should have been 1hr 30min journey from Munich airport. Torrential rain has brought floods, landslides, multiple road accidents and all bands stranded including us.

We are now trying to get back to the motorway to head back to Munich airport.

We apologise to the fans but this is totally out of our control and we hope anyone travelling to the event is safe and well.




"Dear Festival attendees, due to the extreme weather conditions in Bavaria, as well as the disaster zone proclaimed in the District of Traunstein, we must cancel the second day of HiRock Festival in Inzell. The bands scheduled for today can no longer travel on the basis of existing road conditions. To ensure the safety of the bands and festival-goers, the Festival must be cancelled. We deeply regret this step. We will publish more information, including regarding tickets on the HiRock Facebook page and at"
