THE FLUORIDE PROGRAM are a road-seasoned, experienced group of musicians who have booked their own national tour, cultivated a burgeoning fan base throughout their home state of Michigan and beyond, and are on the cusp of nationally releasing their latest CD to college radio.

Biography

At the beginning of 2005, The Fluoride Program was merely an idea, and a framework for the future.

My, how quickly things can change.

One year, two CDs, and dozens of shows later, The Fluoride Program is much more than an idea: they are a road-seasoned, experienced group of musicians who have booked their own national tour, financed and self-released their own records, and cultivated a burgeoning fan base throughout their home state of Michigan and beyond. And this is only the beginning.

The new album Roadside Flowers (their second release in a mere 6 months) finds The Fluoride Program branching out widely from the grit of stack-heavy guitar rock found on their debut EP, Bastion - this time around, the band revels in all of the glorious elements that each of the four members loves about music. From the Nick Drake bedside manners in "Faster," to the nod in "Designs" to '90s pop-perfectionists Sloan and Matthew Sweet, to the rock explorations of prog-soul in "By Proxy, By Love," the group demonstrates that happiness can also be found beyond the usual avenues than what people might expect out of Detroit. Through alternately hopeful and bittersweet gems like "Coma," "On Your Side," and "Sundial," The Fluoride Program proves that their desire and urgency are full-blooded and earnest.

There are plenty of bands who believe in their own music. The Fluoride Program is one of the few who will get you to believe as well.
