FM Release 'Life Is A Highway' Lyric Video

Artist: 
Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Categories: 
 Available Today Along With first single 'Digging Up The Dirt'
When You Pre Order the new album 'Heroes And Villains'
 
New Studio Album Out In Europe 17/4 and North America on 21/4

Frontiers Music Srl has announced an April 17th release date for FM new album 'Heroes And Villains' in Europe, with North America to follow on April 21st. Fans can now listen to another track to debut from the album which is: 'Life Is a Highway.'  The song is available now along with the first video/single 'Digging Up the Dirt' as an Instant Gratification Track beginning today on iTunes worldwide when you pre-order : http://radi.al/FMHandViTunes
 
The lyric video can be enjoyed here:

 

Configurations for the album include CD, and 2LP vinyl set.  You can also preorder " Heroes And Villains " via Amazon now: http://hyperurl.co/fmheroesandvillains
 
'Heroes and Villains' is FM's much anticipated ninth original studio album, which follows the band's celebration in 2014 of their 30th Anniversary and the successful release of the 'Rockville' albums in 2013.
 
Comprising the ex-Samson pair of bassist Merv Goldsworthy and drummer Pete Jupp; the Overland brothers 'vocalist/guitarist Steve and lead guitarist Chris - plus the keyboard talents of Philip Manchester (AKA sci-fi nutcase Didge Digital), FM's first public appearance on Valentine's Day of 1985 was swiftly followed by the release of their debut album, 'Indiscreet'.  FM hit the road in Europe supporting the likes of Tina Turner, Meat Loaf, Foreigner, Gary Moore, Status Quo and the white-hot Bon Jovi on the 'Slippery When Wet' tour.
 
For the next 12 years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring everywhere they could to promote releases such as 1989's 'Tough It Out' and 1992's 'Aphrodisiac'.  In1996, with 'grunge' fever sweeping the world, the band decided to call it a day... until October 2007, when FM at last played together again for the first time in 12 years, headlining a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City, showcasing new guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick. 
 
This was followed in March 2010 by the release of their much-anticipated sixth studio album 'Metropolis'. The next 4 years saw FM touring extensively including tours with Thin Lizzy, Foreigner and Europe and festivals with acts like Toto, Survivor at Graspop, Sweden Rock, Loreley and Download Festival for the second time. For the first time in their history they also had songs play listed on national radio in the UK including "Story Of My Life'  and 'Better Late Than never' on BBC Radio 2.
 
The new album sees FM staying true to their musical legacy offering their classic sound updated in 2015 with great songwriting and performances and of course the 'golden voice' of Steve Overland. Another gem of an album which is undoubtedly going to please all the fans.
 
See FM on tour!

LYNYRD SKYNYRD 'Sweet Home Alabama' 1996 Concert Out June 2

Tuesday, June 2, 2015
 
CLASSIC 1996 ROCKPALAST CONCERT NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON 2CD, DIGITAL FORMATS 
 
New York, NY (March 23, 2015)' On June 2, 2015, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd on 2CD and digital formats [Pre-book Order Date May 8, MSRP $17.98].  This classic 1996 Rockpalast concert  - released for the first time on CD - features the band performing all their classics: 'Sweet Home Alabama,' 'Free Bird,' 'Working For MCA,' 'Saturday Night Special,' 'Gimme Three Steps,' 'I Ain't The One,' and many more. A 2LP release will follow.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three-guitar attack coupled with superb songwriting and onstage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live bands of all time. The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977, which took the lives of three band members (vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and vocalist Cassie Gaines) plus assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, pilot Walter McCreary and co-pilot William Gray, and seriously injured several others. In 1987, the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie. This concert from 1996 captures the band in top form at Rockpalast's Loreley Festival on June 23, 1996. The band line-up for this show includes Johnny Van Zant (v), Gary Rossington (g), Rickey Medlocke (g, v), Hughie Thomasson (g), Billy Powell (k), Leon Wilkeson (b, v), Owen Hale (d), Dale Krantz-Rossington (bv), Carol Chase (bv).
 
As a bonus, Sweet Home Alabama also includes extremely rare recordings of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd line-up. Captured at the Hamburg Musikhalle on December 5 1974, Ronnie Van Zant (v), Gary Rossington (g), Allen Collins (g, v), Ed King (g), Billy Powell (k), Leon Wilkeson (b, v), and Bob Burns (d) deliver incredible versions of 'Working For MCA,' 'Free Bird,' and 'Sweet Home Alabama.'

Sweet Home Alabama proves that Lynyrd Skynyrd's signature and sizzlin' Southern-fried sound was able to enthrall fans the world over. It is a testament to the legendary band's resilience to tragedy (which would have railroaded many other acts) and their ability to carry on and continue to rock stages with fervor and spirit.

Disc 1:
  1.  Workin' For MCA
