Dutch rock formation El Fatso have released their new EP Bravado both online and in a physical form. The Rotterdam-based band wrote these songs during the lockdown period. The frustrations surrounding the Corona (mis)-policy were translated into a more aggressive and heavy sound with occasional forays into metal. Do or Dread and White Noise were previously released as singles with well-received music videos.
El Fatso hits you like a wrecking ball and takes you on a crazy ride full of guitar bravado. Hold on tight: you’ll be rocked, you’ll be rolled, you’ll feel fierce and you’ll feel bold. El Fatso won the audience award at the Eendracht Festival 7.0 and their first single Rodion was the most listened to song on Reddit. In 2018 they played in a packed Rotown and toured the Spanish Costa Blanca. The release show from their debut EP (February 2019) was completely sold out and they played in the final of the Nobel Award 2019. In 2020 they played support shows for Ten Times a Million in Rotown and Gebr. de Nobel. Early 2021 they released their 2nd EP Rock ‘n’ Roffa which got a nice international feedback, and were finalists for De Grote Prijs van Rotterdam. During the covid pandemic the band wrote their newest record Bravado: dark and gloomy times ask for dark and gloomy music. Late 2022 Bravado was introduced to the world during a successful release show in DB’s Utrecht.
