FM bassist Merv Goldsworthy says: "We are absolutely delighted to confirm It Bites, Vega and Serpentine will be joining us on the road in March when we tour for our new album 'Rockville'.
"It's been quite a few years since we last shared a stage with It Bites, Reading Festival in 1986 to be exact" adds Merv. "We're looking forward to catching up with them again! They're making fantastic albums and it's going to be a real pleasure to have them on the road with us."
It Bites have long been firm favourites for lovers of finely-crafted music. Check out the EPK for their 2012 album 'Map Of The Past' at the bottom of this page.

Vega are set to release new album 'What The Hell' later this month. "This is a dream start to 2013 for Vega. FM are a band we have always had huge respect for and Steve Overland has one of the best voices in rock today", says Nick Workman, Vega's vocalist. "Vega will make sure that the audience are fully lubricated and warmed up before FM hit the stage! Roll on March 2013..."
Serpentine are currently hard at work preparing their follow-up to 2011s 'Living And Dying In High Definition'. "It's an honour and privilege to tour with FM, a band we've listened to as we've grown up and look up to as legends in the melodic rock genre. We'll be looking forward to bringing our best performances to some cities we've never played before as well as some we'll be lucky enough to revisit; this is an opportunity we'll definitely be making the most of!"
FM will be joined by Vega and Serpentine for their first four shows in March with It Bites and Vega as Special Guests for the shows 20th-23rd March. FM's new album 'Rockville' will be released via Riff City Records on 11th March 2013 and is available to pre-order as part of FM's PledgeMusic campaign at http://bit.ly/FMpledge1.
