F.O.D.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, their 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 released on vinyl through Thanks But No Thanks Records, Funtime Records and Effervescence Records.
The next big date in every punk rock fan’s agenda is October 11th, when F.O.D. will release their sophomore album ‘Tricks of The Trade’ at their very own festival. 11 other bands from all over Europe will celebrate this release with them, such as Flatcat, Not Available and River Jumpers.
F.O.D. is on the rise, ready and hungry for the stages in 2015.
