F.O.D. shares first new single called 'Thirtysomething And Counting' Posted 28 Jan 2020

Check out the video for "Thirtysomething And Counting." The track finds the band building off their pop-punk pedigree, but they've layered track on top of track, approaching Roy Thomas Baker/Queen levels of harmony and sonic mass. The entire album finds the band getting more technical and more experimental, and the new track is just a glimpse of the bigger picture. For example, the new album tells the story of "Annie" in the town Sleepville, "a small provincial town where nothing really happens." And then things get weird. Also, the band is literally releasing an entire book coinciding with the album. Now, that's a dedication!

F.O.D. shares album art! Posted 19 Jan 2020

When we made the announce that we're going to release the new F.O.D. records we were not lying... we can't believe it ourselves... I guess that means 2020 is all about 'getting serious' in this business...

Stoked to be doing this together with our Wiretap Records and Thousand Islands Records budies!!

We just came back from the bank and they approved our loan application so that means we're going to announce something really really cool soon!

Write down the date: March 20th

Bearded Punk Zine #1 (Dutch) Posted 14 Jan 2020

This Ain't Noise fest nog eens een magazine uit. Dit inspireerde ons om een beetje hetzelfde te doen, maar op iets regelmatige basis. Of dat gaan we toch proberen.

Bereid je voor op puur ge-ze-ver... Dit zine zal gratis verstuurd worden bij elke Belgische / Nederlandse bestelling (aangezien het in het nederlands geschreven is) via de website. Op shows zullen we een uiterst kleine hoeveelheid beschikbaar hebben... En dit elke maand.

Wat staat er in die eerste editie?
- interviews met Funeral Dress / F.O.D. / For I Am
- Bearded Punk Fest IV spoilers
- Wedstrijdvragen waarmee je coole CD pakketten kunt winnen

en nog zoveel meer... Deze worden ook maandelijks online gezet!

Let's make the world a better place Posted 05 Jan 2020

While some idiots are declaring war on each other, millions of helpless animals and countless much needed plants, flowers and trees are dying in Australia.

If the idiots concern themselves with killing one another, then let's do the opposite and save as much of Australia's nature as we can.

That means we'll be shipping FOR FREE all throughout January. All profits we make will go to the forces and fire fighters helping out in Australia.

Let's make a difference!!
