On Sunday 4 March Steve Overland chatted to David Randall on David’s weekly show on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio.  The feature included tracks from the new album.

Says David: “Get Ready to ROCK! has supported FM since 2007 when they reformed and featured many album and gig reviews.  We were there at the Metropolis album launch in February 2010 – their “comeback” album – and it is timely to catch up with the band again via our chat with Steve ahead of a new album release.”
