Whereas the word abdomen may make you think of guts or your failed sixpack, in this case it refers to three boys from Friesland in the great north of the Netherlands. Their energetic live
shows live up to the band's name in all aspects. Raw, chaotic, unexpected.
Described as a mixture of garage, punk and grunge, what's important isn't how you choose to call them, but
whether or not you brought earplugs to the show.
Since they began playing in 2015, Abdomen have released two singles and accumulated solid live experience by supporting bands like Ex-Cult and Bad Breeding and playing in popular Dutch
festivals such as Popronde 2016 and Eurosonic. At the end of 2016, they started recording their debut album 'Emetophobia' in Leeds with producer Matt Peel (Pulled Apart By Horses, Autobahn,
Eagulls, Bad Breeding).
