Reaching their current formation in the summer of 2003 and kicking your ass from the moody town of Puurs, Belgium, theDONUTS have become that one poppunk band to really cheer up your Bar Mitzvah afterparty. With a blend of energy, melody, motivation and drive theDONUTS hit you with catchy, insanely, rocking songs, mostly about their life experiences, hopes and dreams which they love to share with the many youngsters hanging on every word. Writing explosive songs, playing high-energy shows, and focusing on the fun in making music have made theDONUTS a band to watch. The bands love of the crowd and their love of music takes a hold of everyone who sees them perform their music live. During the last few years, theDONUTS have been working hard to build a reputation for themselves by playing as many shows as they possibly could (tons of youth clubs, Swillierock 2004, Willrock 2003 Kandarock 2003 and 2005, MacRock 2005, Made2Skate,) trying to leave an inevitable mark in every town and making as many friends as they can on the way. theDONUTSs hard work and determination allowed them to finish in the finals of 100% Puur; an opportunity that allowed them to play Maanrock 2004 with bands like Dog Eat Dog, Funeral Dress,... theDONUTS released in the spring of 2005 a split CD with 3 other Belgian bands: Idem, Seven Oaks and Brave Like a Cowboy. Hoping by that way their music gets to the people even faster. theDONUTS continue to work hard and in the summer of 2005 they won the jury price at the Thats all Punks rally in Kortijk. This resulted in a free 2-days recording session at Fatsoundz studios in Knokke Heist, results of that will be available soon. In the fall of 2005 theDONUTS also became the face of the 5 years Poppunt campaign, the boys were (ab)used for a commercial on television and for the Muzikantendag 2005 poster and website. In October of the same year they won Studio Brussels first demopoll of the new season with both jury as public votes. theDONUTS couldnt stay unnoticed and then Stage-Mania came along with an offer they couldn't deny so from then on they didnt have to worry about bookings themselves anymore. For the new year theyre already selected for Humos Rock Rally and they hope to do as many show as possible to just have a great time playing music.
