Biography

It isn't rare for a young band to set out to make great music with honest intentions and a love for what they are doing, but it isn't often that a young band gets past the struggles, fights, and tireless hours on the road to become what they set out to be.

"It seems like two minutes ago we were playing Monday night for five people in a dive on campus," says vocalist Brian Frank, "and I guess five years isn't that long in the big scheme of things, but I think we have come a long way."

Originally formed in 2001, Fatkid Dodgeball has generated a buzz throughout the music industry, through performances opening for Fall Out Boy, Safety Suit, +44, The Academy Is, and appearances on MTV's smash hit Laguna Beach and MTV2's On The Rise. Most recently picking up the non-exclusive endorsement of the National Dodgeball League as "Official Band of the NDL" with their track "Get It". http://www.nationaldodgeball.com/fkdb/fatkiddodgeball.html

FKDB is fresh out of the studio having completed a new album featuring the single "Favorite Fix" that is getting early support from regional radio DJ's as well as Sirius Radio and Pandora. Recorded in NY with Grammy nominated producer, Baby Paul (Nas), Rocky (Stacie Orrico), & Dano (Alex Nackman) & Anthony Santo (Bandcamp), at the world famous Killingsworth Recording Studios, FKDB is due to release in Summer/Fall of 09 in stores and iTunes US & UK, Rhapsody, Amazon and Napster.

Currently, Fatkid Dodgeball can be seen all over the midwest, playing various bars, clubs and college campuses. Their live shows combine energy, sweat, and great music, which keep crowds coming back. Fatkid Dodgeball’s unique spirit and attitude has a way of making even the newest of fans feel as if they are a part of the FKDB experience. FKDB recently won Best Indie Band on Vote the Music and is featured among the top 5 regional acts on MTV2. They have logged serious miles, building a strong following across Ohio and beyond, and have appeared on Alternative Addiction’s V.9 compilation. Most notably and a highlight was their track "17 Forever" airing on MTV's hit series Laguna Beach AND FKDB has also just recently been chosen as the only unsigned artist to appear on the new Coast2Coast ROCK Mixtape featuring Green Day, Paramore, Cobra Starship, The Killers & others. . This growing, loyal following knows what many will soon; Fatkid Dodgeball have only just begun.

"[Fatkid Dodgeball] is a study in contrasts: acoustic riffing and electric leads, vocal harmonies and pop-punk energy, and gentle melody over hard-hitting beats," writes D.X. Ferris of Cleveland Scene Magazine. This contrast is what sets them apart. Give them a listen and you'll hear for yourself. Go to a show, and you'll get it. I don't doubt him one bit when Frank sings, "If we can't take this town, then we'll just burn it down," in the NDL single "Get It." I can almost hear the sirens...

Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Green Day.
