2018 will see the release of British Rock band FM’s eleventh studio album, “Atomic Generation” and plenty of touring, including their first-ever USA appearance in May – headlining MelodicRock Fest 5 in Chicago, IL. FM will also headline at the sister festival MelodicRock Fest Scandinavia in June and have been confirmed for Frontiers Rock Festival in April. To kick off the year FM will appear at Giants of Rock festival in Minehead in January with more UK dates underway. FM are true Melodic Rock Giants and “Atomic Generation” is going to build even more on their Rock solid foundations!
“Atomic Generation“ combines all qualities of the five-piece. No FM album since “Tough It Out“ (1989) has ever been so close to the original sound of the band (“Golden Days“). Not only the unique voice of Steve Overland but also superb songwriting and high musicianship are remarkable. There’s definitely a lot of blues (“Playing Tricks On Me“ or “Stronger“) in it, too, easily bridging the gap to their more recent outputs.
