BandPopRock

Fence was once Belgians best kept pop-secret, until 2012 came! After three coming-of-age albums, the band has currently reached it's full potential on the latest CD FENCE, resulting in new form of groovy pop rock, unheard since the Beatles, and ready to convince the rest of Europe.

Biography

Fence started way back in 1994 as band, with the aim to make good music. All the rest was uninportant. To their surprise, Fence ended up second in the prestigious Belgian Rock Rally in 1998, just after the boys from Das Pop. In the period between 1998 and 2005 the band released 3 critically acclaimed albums, which gained a lot of attention and airplay on national Radio. The band played extensively in the Benelux, touring with Miles (D) in Germany and Switzerland, and with Millionaire (B) and Voicst (NL) in the Netherlands. Fence performed at many important venues, such as Ancienne Belgique (B), De Vooruit (B), Trix (B), Paradiso (NL), Vera (NL), Effenaar (NL) and Pukkelpop (B).

After a three year break, the band released a new album in 2012, which was received extremely well in Belgium and The Netherlands (press releases available through fencemusic.tumblr.com). Most critics are considering the new album, entitled FENCE, as the best work of the band yet, en certainly one of the best releases in 2012 so far. The album had been selling rapidly in the Benelux; the album is listed in the top 100 of best selling albums in Belgium in April and May 2012.

The band has been playing concerts in Belgium and The Netherlands since the release of the album in April , and reactions are extremely positive as well. The band is employing a crew of professional technicians, to ensure a perfect and vivid experience for the audience, by means of a custom-made light show and a well chosen set of state of the art outboard gear for the FOH mixer. Currently Fence is doing a tour wth shows in Belgium, The Netherlands and France, and will perform in August at one of the biggest summer festivals in Europe, Pukkelpop (B), for the third time.
