FM: a name any connaisseur will know for sure. Founded in 1984, the career of the band of the two brothers Steve and Chris Overland gained momentum rapidly: a deal with reknowned major label CBS, support slots on tours of stars like Meatloaf, FOREIGNER, Gary Moore or BON JOVI, the release of the brillant debut 'Indiscreet' and the hit single 'Frozen Heart': FM quickly achieved an excellent reputation amongst fans and listeners of superb AOR. More highly acclaimed recordings, shows with STATUS QUO and WHITESNAKE and headlining tours followed until the band suddenly went on hiatus in gthe mid of the 90ies.

2007 marked the year of FM's great and anticipated comeback: The band reformed in order to appear as main act on the bill of British Firefest. The audience was thrilled, and fired by the huge succes of this performance, FM decided to get back in the ring doing more live shows and writing and recording new songs. Since then, the band is back and here to stay - including its distinctive songwriting and the outstanding voice of Steve Overland, as you can hear on the latest release 'Atomic Generation'.
