Cool. I feel like I can make a pretty good guess on exactly how this will sound, but hopefully there's a bit of danger and excitement to it.

First song 'Synchronized' released

From Frontiers:

FM have premiered the first single & video, 'Synchronized', from their upcoming album of the same name.  The new album is out April 10th on CD/LP/Digital. 

Official press release below, for those who care to read such things!

- FM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, SYNCHRONIZED
- OUT APRIL 10, 2020 ON FRONTIERS RECORDS
- VIDEO & SINGLE FOR TITLE TRACK OUT TODAY

April 10, 2020 will see the release of FM's twelfth studio album, SYNCHRONIZED. To no one’s surprise, it is another top-notch album that will keep the band’s status as one of the premiere melodic rock entities firmly in place. Today, the band has released a music video for the title track to the album. 

Founded in 1984 when singer Steve Overland and his brother, guitarist Chris (both formerly of Wildlife) teamed up with drummer Pete Jupp (ex-Wildlife and Samson) and bassist Merv Goldsworthy (ex-Diamond Head and Samson), the guys were soon joined by Didge Digital on keyboards and by December of that year they had secured a recording contract with CBS/Portrait and headed to Germany for a run of dates with Meat Loaf.

Further tours with Tina Turner, Foreigner, and Gary Moore built their momentum and on September 8, 1986 FM released their debut album INDISCREET (featuring the hugely popular single "Frozen Heart") to great critical acclaim. The year ended on a high with FM supporting the white-hot Bon Jovi on their "Slippery When Wet" tour.

For the next nine years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring extensively as headliners and also joining bands such as Status Quo and Whitesnake on tours to promote releases such as 1989's TOUGH IT OUT, 1991’s TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS (with Andy Barnett on guitar replacing the now-departed Chris Overland); 1992’s APHRODISIAC and what was to be their 'final' album, 1995's DEAD MAN'S SHOES with new recruit Jem Davis (Tobruk, UFO) on keyboards.

In 2007 - after a 12 year sabbatical - FM were persuaded to return to the stage for a 'one-off' headline performance at a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City. The rapturous reception from the fans at Firefest led to FM quickly making the decision to record a new album and following a return to Firefest in 2009, in March 2010 FM released their much-anticipated sixth studio album METROPOLIS with Jim Kirkpatrick replacing Andy Barnett on lead guitar.

The band haven't stopped since! Headline tours both in the UK and overseas, Special Guest slots touring with the likes of Foreigner, Journey, Thin Lizzy, Heart, Saxon and Skid Row, festival appearances including Download, Planet Rockstock, Sweden Rock, Graspop, Steelhouse Festival, Frontiers Rock Festival, Ramblin' Man Fair and in 2018 their first-ever live show in the US at Melodic Rock Fest 5.

When not touring, FM have been busy in the studio and since their 2010 'comeback' album they have released 2013’s ROCKVILLE and ROCKVILLE 2, HEROES AND VILLAINS in 2015 and ATOMIC GENERATION in 2018 along with INDISCREET 30 - a re-recorded version of their debut album - and THE ITALIAN JOB live CD/DVD.

Not bad at all. Strikingly familiar, but they do what they do well.

They have been pretty consistent over the course of their last few albums,  but this is the best one they have done in recent years.  As mentioned, a familiar sound (no different than a lot of other bands it has to be said), but they are great at what they do and there are lot of great songs on here, with 'Through The Fire' being especially memorable. A very enjoyable, highly rated album indeed

 it's safe as houses again. 

nothing wrong with it but if I never spun it again I wouldn't be bothered.

imo since tough it out I've only been excited by The Ladder album and Epic.

    • Always loved this song    
    • Yeah, I mean I don't know if the cop who had his knee on the the guys neck was senior to the otehr cops? Regardless, they didn't know the force that was being applied to the neck, and it seems to be some kind of standard tacktic in arresting some people to make that move. As for racism, events like this make me realise just how racist my country isn't. I mean we have our aboriginal rights etc, and accusations from time to time of racism on public transport etc, usually coming from lower social economic people. But we are a very multicultural society here, and seem to be quite accepting. Of course tehre are the usual comments from time to time, some passive in jokes, others not so passive and innocent (usually from the older generation, or from the crowd who have the southern cross tattoos on their legs) As I said earlier, hard to comment on US stuff, and I'm sure the degree of racism varies from state to state and area to area within each state. but John Corabi spelled ot a pretty fair stance on what is going on over theren a Facebook post. Hard to equate rioting, looting , shootings, etc etc toany kind of reasonable protest, and all it does is direct attention away from the original issue.
    • Angry Again - Megadeth
    • It is on iTunes too Glen - at least it’s different to the one Frontiers posted. They have it opening with Love Of My Life but on media platforms it seems to be Breakout..
    • anyone notice the track listing order is completely different on Amazon 
    • I stand corrected. 
    • https://www.france24.com/en/20190316-looting-clashes-mark-most-violent-day-yellow-vest-protests-months
    • Well, it wasn't that long ago that we had the "Yellow Vest" riots in Paris. They were full on riots, but I don't remember hearing reports of widespread looting. Maybe there's footage of gangs of Frenchmen running out of bakeries loaded up with baguettes and croissants, but I didn't see it.
