FM announce UK tour dates

FM will kick off their upcoming European tour with four UK dates.

They’ve scheduled the shows in support of their ninth album Heroes & Villains, released earlier this year on Frontier Records. They’ll be supported by labelmates Vega.

Following the November dates, frontman Steve Overland, bassist Merv Goldsworthy, drummer Pete Jupp, keyboardist Jem Davis and guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick will play shows across Europe with Electric Boys, before returning to the UK in January.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2013’s Rockville II, Kirkpatrick said: “We’re on a roll – some of these tracks are better than anything the band has ever produced. Steve Overland’s voice is as good as ever.”

Earlier this year, FM released videos for Somedays I Only Want To Rock & Roll and Diggin’ Up The Dirt.
