Today one of the newest signings to Rockfest Records, the vibrant and talented metal female three piece GFM, release their new music video for “Framing My Perception.” The EP, named after the track, is set to release on May 27th. The single showcases the bands unique abilities to mix their heavy metal sound with clean, melodic vocals and an unforgettable chorus. The music video depicts the battle of struggling with addiction within yourself and letting it take over, but rising above it and becoming stronger in the end. You can catch GFM playing this song live on their last few remaining shows on tour with FOZZY:
“With this video, We wanted to portray the raw, honest truth of addiction. It’s not so much about the battle with the substance itself, but it’s about a persons past and the pain that comes along with it. In the darkest moments, sometimes it seems like the best option to drown out the pain and the memories. However, that will only hurt more in the long run. There is hope, and your life is worth living to the fullest!” - GFM
GFM (Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh) is not your average teenage girl band, these three metalhead sisters are heavy and loud, and triumphantly taking on the stage with a genre of their own, which they have penned BEAUTYCORE. Formed by the English sisters Maggie (Bass and Vocals), CJ (Guitar), and Lulu (Drums) in Jacksonville, FL, GFM is a band set to break boundaries. They’re bringing life back to rock and metal and giving heavy music fans of all ages a space to thrive.
The sisters’ musical journey began in 2016 when they worked on their first album Identity Crisis with producers Jake Jones and Justin Forshaw (We as Human). In 2017, the girls went on their first U.S. tour and the demand was so strong for GFM that they went out again the following year on another U.S. tour, finishing out the season with their first trip to Germany for the Loud & Proud Fest where the band was met with thousands of loving fans. GFM’s live show is unmatched as the trio comes alive through iconic wardrobe designs and unparalleled charisma. They have shared the stage with artists such as Motionless In White, Breaking Benjamin, Demon Hunter, A Day To Remember, Disturbed, Halestorm, Chelsea Grin, and more.
2020 marked the iconic release of their most beloved EP to date: “Operation Take Over” and the unveiling of their “Bones” live video. Throughout the last couple of years, word of mouth has created major buzz for their song, “Give Me A Sign,” which has reached 519k streams and they have a total of 2 million overall streams on Spotify.
As a band of faith, they hope to encourage listeners to keep fighting as they are not alone. GFM’s song “Taking Over” was #1 on the Christian Music Weekly Charts for 4 weeks in a row. Their song, “Graveyard of Identities” was #6 on Billboard Christian Rock Charts. Their song “On the Inside” was #9 on the Billboard Christian Rock Charts.
In 2022 the band was discovered by wrestling phenomenon and rock royalty Chris Jericho. This led GFM to their next chapter - a personal invitation from Jericho to join Fozzy on a nationwide tour. With new music on the way in May via Rockfest Records and a national tour in progress, “operation: take over” is in full effect.
