GFM (GOLD FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH), a trio of the three teenage sisters who balancing the melodicism of bands like Paramore with a Slipknot-like ferocity, has announced a new run of upcoming live dates, beginning March 15.
“We’re really excited to get back out on the road,” says bassist Maggie English. “We’re playing with new bands, and we’re finally reaching those cities that our fans have been begging us to come to. There’s going to be lots of energy with this one.”
GFM plans to release a new single in April, the following up to January’s “I Don’t Need Your Fantasy.” Produced by the acclaimed Joey Sturgis (Of Mice & Men, The Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack!, Asking Alexandria), “I Don’t Need Your Fantasy” is a song about breaking stereotypes – something GFM does brilliantly with a sound they have dubbed “beautycore.”

Clearly not your average teenage girl band, CJ English (guitar/vocals), Maggie English (bass, keyboards, vocals) and LuLu English (drums, vocals) are breaking boundaries in the music industry and bringing life back to rock and metal with GFM’s encouraging and positive message.
The sisters all began taking music lessons at just five years old, which sparked a love of music that would continue to grow. As they grew up, the girls collectively decided that they wanted to pursue this love for music professionally and began putting blood and sweat into creating GFM.
GFM’s first album, Identity Crisis, was released in 2016, followed by Oh, The Horror! in April 2019. After touring the US multiple times, the group headed overseas to Germany in 2018, where their energetic performances established GFM as a festival favorite. A new EP is scheduled for release this spring.
