Fat Dads have been making waves with their infectious tunes and unwavering DIY ethos. Their first four demos skyrocketed to acclaim, grabbing the attention of Radio 1 and Radio X through word of mouth alone.
Recognised as one of the UKs most exciting new bands by Indie music tastemakers This Feeling, the physical copies of their debut EP sold out within 48 hours, reaching fans across Europe and America.
2023 started with a bang, as the first weekend in January saw the hashtag \#FatDadsAFHF2023 started to trend on Twitter due to thousands of people wanting to see Fat Dads play at Louis Tomlinsons Away From Home Festival in 2023.
Their fifth release Girlfriend smashed into iTunes top 20 on its release day.
Their first official Merchandise range (in collaboration with www.localbandtees.co) broke numerous site records on release day, with orders being shipped to England, Scotland, Germany, Holland, France, USA (East & West Coast), and Canada.
Fat Dads made their first festival appearance at Kendal Calling 2023 and played to a packed and overflowing tent (the largest crowd that the BBC Introducing tent had seen all weekend) of passionate fans, all singing the words back to them - a remarkable feat achieved entirely without industry contacts, PR, or management.
