The band have been extremely busy since reuniting in 2007, with a recent flurry of activity after they released their ninth studio album HEROES AND

with Electric Boys. 2015 festival appearances included HRH AOR; Nantwich Jazz Blues & Music Festival; Frontiers Rock Festival ; Graspop Metal Meeting;
Bospop; Ramblin' Man Fair; Steelhouse Festival and two festivals in Sweden - Skogsröjet and Helgeåfestivalen. FM also headlined Planet Rockstock in

Chepstow Castle with The Quireboys and GUN. Later in the year FM headed to Germany for appearances at Escape Open Air and H.E.A.T. festivals
along with shows in Barcelona and Madrid in November.
»Metalfans, die sich für harte Musik wegen des Ami-Zeugs der 80er Jahre interessieren, finden auf Atomic Generation eine riesige Spielwiese vor - inklusive der bläsergetränkten Soulnummer ›Playing Tricks On Me‹. Ist das eigentlich
das bisher beste FM-Album? Vielleicht. Der Backkatalog der Briten ist allerdings so herrlich, dass ein Ranking schwerfällt.« (Good Times, April / Mai 2018)
