Far East Movement (also known as FM) will kick off their "Up In The Air" tour on September 13 in Anaheim, CA with Mike Posner. The group's first single "Like A G6" is currently #12 overall on iTunes Top Songs and #5 on iTunes Top Pop Songs.
Members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J Splif and DJ Virman formed FM in Los Angeles where they've already had a # 1 song at radio with the hit "Girls On The Dance Floor." Their music bridges the gap between underground club and mainstream hip-hop and pop music. They've coined the term 'Free Wired' to describe their lifestyle and sound that blends elements of Hip-Hop, Pop, Electro and Dance.

"We want people at our shows to feel free to let loose and 'geek out' however the feel comfortable. Our music and lifestyle is about making sure everyone is having a good time," stated Kev Nish in an official capacity.
Far East Movement have already taken the Los Angeles club scene global, having to their credit two world tours, including recent stints with Lady Gaga (Monster's Ball), N*E*R*D (Army Tour), Robyn/Kelis (All Hearts Tour) and LMFAO (Party Rock). The group will release the aptly titled debut album Free Wired on October 12 via Cherry Tree/Interscope Records.
