Melodic rockers FM have announced that they will be releasing their appropriately entitled thirteenth studio album, Thirteen, on March 18 via Frontiers.

Alongside the news, FM have offered a glimpse of the forthcoming album in the form of the new single, Waiting On Love. 

Talking about the upcoming release, vocalist Steve Overland explains, “The album was written during the first lockdown and was recorded at Pepperland Studios.

"We’ve gone back to our AOR roots with its first single, Waiting On Love, but it also includes some hard rockers."

FM will also be setting off on a full European tour, kicking off on March 31. "Having missed out on live shows for our last record, Synchronized, which came out during the first lockdown, we’re also getting to tour this one….fingers crossed!" continues Overland.

"We start a full UK tour at the end of March, then head into mainland Europe in May. We’re really looking forward to it.”
