“The community around FVK is a demonstration of music at its most powerful, when fans are swallowed whole by the alternate universe a band or artist can create” – VICE
“FVK deliver an honest, captivating collection that will speak to a broader audience while satisfying their faithful. If you haven’t been paying attention, it would be wise to start now. (4.5/5)” – Alternative Press

2015 has without a doubt been FVK’s biggest year to date. They broke into Europe for the first time with not one, but an impressive three European tours, two of which were with US heavy hitters . In This Moment and Black Veil Brides, alongside an endless list of festival appearance- highlights being Download Festival’s second stage and their own curated event Havoc Festival.
“Simply put, we love to play for our fans so the March headline is going to be a nice contrast to supporting. I think we’re starting to find our feet live with exactly how we want to come across so we’re looking to put our mark of the set and give it some great dynamics. That coupled with the fact that we’re going to a couple of places we haven’t been for ages like Edinburgh, means this is looking pretty tasty!” – Kier Kemp
FVK’s recently released mini-album BRUISES (KKKK – KERRANG!, 8/10 – BIG CHEESE, 7/10 – ROCK SOUND, 4.5/5 – ALTERNATIVE PRESS) marked a change in direction for the dark pop 5-piece, moving away from the Grandomina concept on previous albums Militia of the Lost and Unbreakable Hearts.
The record landed the band widespread praise, charting at #14 in the UK Rock Album Chart. Despite the music undergoing a transition co-singer Laurence Beveridge continues to enhance the Grandomina experience that FVK fans know and love through novels, with his third book Unbreakable Hearts due 30th December. The band will also reveal details of forthcoming comic book The Vigilante next year. Fast emerging as an unstoppable live force in British rock, FVK are a rarity that goes beyond the music.
Unafraid to stand out, to be different, to have their own identity, they’re in it for the long-haul, growing to be pioneers for a new and exciting generation of rock fans.
