ABOUT F.O.D.

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

Since the release of their debut EP 'Dance To This!' in 2011, F.O.D. has become a household name in the Belgian punk rock scene. The band built a steady live reputation with their catchy melodies and vocal harmonies, much in the vein of what their legendary predecessors such as Green Day, Descendents, Lagwagon and Bad Religion have delivered us over the past few decades. Their first video, the instant poppunk anthem 'Carry on' became a classic among the scene.

2013 was a year to remember: F.O.D. released their first full album 'Ontario', which was showered with praise and great reviews all over Europe. 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.

Following the release of 'Ontario', F.O.D. hit most of the Belgian stages, scored a record deal for 'Ontario' in Japan and was even invited to tour Ontario and Quebec in Canada! Their steady rise to punk rock fame did not slow down in 2014, as the band signed with Belgium's renowned punk rock label Funtime Records and released a 7 inch single in February. In the summer, 'Ontario' was re-released on a 12" limited vinyl edition.

The next big date in every punk rock fan's agenda is September 23rd, when F.O.D. presents their sophomore album 'Tricks of The Trade' on 4 records-labels, all over the world (Belgium, Germany, France, USA, Canada and Japan). They will celebrate this at their own festival on October 11th together with 11 other (inter)national bands.

F.O.D. is on the rise, ready and hungry for the stages in 2015.

Few impressions by others

“De vlotte, opgewekte punkrock klinkt als een mix van The Bouncing Souls, oude Green Day en de beste punkrockband die Nederland ooit voorbracht: Undeclinable Ambuscade.” (Up Magazine)

“Every single song on the record is great and extra catchy, simply impossible not to sing along to.” (Melodic Punk Style)

“F.O.D. bewijst dat het tijd werd dat mensen met wat meer ervaring zich eens moesten buigen over het genre pretpunk.” (Kwadratuur)

“F.O.D kan zich meten met typische Amerikaanse poppunkcollega's zonder als een soort coverband te klinken. 'Ontario' smaakt naar meer.” (daMusic)

“De 16 tracks zijn stuk voor stuk puntig, energiek en verduiveld catchy.” (Musiczine)

"Stuk voor stuk grandioze composities! " (Rockblog)

"Als je fan bent van bands als Green Day, The Descendents, Lagwagon en Bad Religion, haal dan zéker ‘Ontario’ in huis. Je zal er geen spijt van krijgen."(Cutting Edge)
