Starting out in 2008, Belgian foursome F.O.D. only played the Green Day Dookie album for about two years. In 2010 they started writing their own 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 material while touring across Belgium, leaving no punk rock heart untouched.
2013 was a year to remember: F.O.D.’s debut album ‘Ontario’ was released and received many 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 kept roaming 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 will see the birth of the new album ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ on Effervescence Records.
F.O.D. is on a mission to breathe new life into Belgian punk rock, and you’re more than welcome for the ride.
