FM brings you Closer To Heaven with live video from The Italian Job

UK’s melodic rock band FM started the tour cycle following 10th studio album ‘Atomic Generation’ with a stunning appearance in front of the Frontiers Rock Festival crowd in Milan, Italy in April 2018.

The set included fan favourites and classic cuts taken from their first two albums, ‘Indiscreet’ and ’Tough It Out’, alongside cuts from recent releases ‘Heroes And Villains’ and the the aforementioned ‘Atomic Generation’, plus surprise song choices such as the 1987 single ‘Let Love Be The Leader’ thrown into the mix.

This show is documented as ‘The Italian Job’ and a live video for the track “Closer To Heaven” can be viewed below:

The band’s performance was simply faultless and mind-blowing. The rhythm section of Pete Jupp and Merv Goldsworthy didn’t miss a beat, while Jem Davis produced rich sonic tapestries with his keyboards, Jim Kirkpatrick was absolutely amazing on guitar, and Mr. Steve Overland offered a breathtaking performance, showing the world why he is one of the truly legendary voices in rock.

“Knowing we were recording and filming the show, there was a lot more pressure than normal for this performance. But that aside, we knew the Italian fans and the fans who had travelled from around the world would not let us down. As you will see from the footage, it was a marvellous evening and they did indeed deliver us the energy we needed. We were blown away by the audience reaction. Fantastic crew and venue added to the overall energy. This is also the only live album that features some of the newer material from ‘Metropolis’, ‘Rockville’, ‘Heroes & Villains’ and ‘Atomic Generation’. It is a good representation of where the band is today,” says bassist and founding member Merv Goldsworthy.
