Old Habits Die Hard is the fourteenth studio album from the legendary British rock band, FM. The album will be released by Frontiers Records on May 3rd.

Released to coincide with the bands 40th anniversary (1984-2024), vocalist, guitarist and founding member Steve Overland says “the new album encompasses the best melodic elements of the band’s illustrious 40-year spanning career. We really looked at what made the most popular FM albums great and tried to focus on that”.

FM are known for their big choruses, twin lead guitars and Steve Overland’s intimate, yet powerful vocals and clean guitar sound. Following 2022’s Thirteen album, Old Habits Die Hard was slightly delayed by keyboard player Jem Davis’ cancer disgnosis and then the sudden passing of FM’s founding guitarist Chris Overland (Steve’s brother), which hit the band hard.

FM comprises vocalist and guitarist Steve Overland, bass player Merv Goldsworthy, drummer, Pete Jupp, keyboard player Jem Davis and guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick.

On the tour FM will be joined by special guests Brave Rival, Collateral, Romeo’s Daughter and Hand Of Dimes.
