F.O.D. | Punk Rock group from Belgium

Starting out in 2008, Belgian foursome F.O.D. started writing songs. Short, fast and very melodic, with no strings attached, as their legendary predecessors such as Green Day, Descendents, Lagwagon and Bad Religion taught them.

F.O.D. soon built a steady live reputation with their catchy melodies and vocal harmonies, and in December 2011 they released their first EP ‘Dance To This!’ on Thanks But No Thanks Records. Inspired by the positive feedback, the band kept on writing new songs while touring across Belgium, leaving no punk rock heart untouched.

2013 was a year to remember: F.O.D.’s latest full album ‘Ontario’ was released and received many nice critics and great reviews! 16 songs about life, kids, music, society, all wrapped in F.O.D.’s signature sound that reminds the old timers among us of our favorite nineties’ bands and the younger kids that dancing isn’t just for girls.

F.O.D. intensively roamed around Belgium, released the album in Japan and then… they got invited to fulfill their wildest dream: a tour through Canadian provinces Ontario and Quebec in August!

This year (2014) will see birth of a new full-length album in cooperation with Belgium’s renowned punk rock label Funtime Records. Prior to that F.O.D. releases a new song on a 7” single in February.

The band is notorious for its catchy vocal harmonies and short melodic songs, all soaked in their own authentic sound.

F.O.D. is on a mission to breathe new life into Belgian punk rock, and you’re more than welcome for the ride.

Few impressions by others
