The FMs, are a Brooklyn based group combining elements of industrial/synth/pop with a glam/punk attitude, advancing androgeny and activism. Eyes Are Suffering will be released on February 16th on ADIM Records.
The FMs have created a momentous buzz after the release of their debut album “Machinacene Epoch” on 27 C1ub in August 2017. Their controversial single “Implosion Model” went viral on Facebook and Youtube garnering over 200,000 views and piqued the interest of Editor Ken Scrudato who interviewed them for Blackbook Magazine. Since then, The FMs have been featured in Indie Source Magazine, Huffington Post, Pure M, TRV Countdown, Indie Music Buzz and the Jimmy Star Show. The FMs will also have a featured performance in the new major motion picture “Fluidity”.
The FMs have been building a live following from the goth, burning man, kink and underground rock communities through a monthly secret event called SUBVERT held on a 10,000 sq ft. docked ship in the canals of Brooklyn, blending edgy young bands with dungeon spaces, fire performances, burlesque tarot readers and other inventive taboo elements. They recently shared the stage with members of Devo and Randy Jones of The Village People and have played with other great acts at venues around NYC. They were recently announced to be a part of the Elements Festival in Lakewood, PA (a 10000+) festival and are currently booking further tours and festival dates for 2018.
Outside of music, frontman Matt Namer has produced over one hundred Burning Man, arts, dance, and live music events in the NYC area in the past ten years and has collaborated with Bang On NYC, Danger, House of Yes, Kostume Kult, and many others. In 2007 Matt discovered a 37′ x 11′ graffiti wall hidden behind a wall in a SoHo loft with art from Jean Michel Basquiat, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Francesco Clemente, Rammellzee, Koor and others and co-founded the Gallery 151 artspace afterwards which he continues to be a co-owner of. Matt is also a co-owner of Aquatorium, a community/artspace venue on a 150′ vessel docked in Brooklyn.
