MARCH | Breda, NL
After years of relentless touring and two critically acclaimed full albums, MARCH established themselves as a highlight of the European punk rock scene. The Dutch/Belgian quartet takes the freshest parts from rock and punk to give their songs a raw edge, a catchy twist and a positive message. Their goal: making you go harder, drive faster and shake the dust off your bones, all while painting a huge smile on your face.
Combining singer Fleur’s uniquely raw voice with an overload of crispy guitar riffs and a high octane
rhythm section, MARCH delivers the most intense live show this side of the Bronx. With +150 shows under their belt, the formation has become a well-oiled live machine that thrives on stage.

“Live the band is really energetic and the songs are just great … Great band, with a singer whose voice blows you away. Chapeau!“ – polytox.org
“MARCH are simply awesome, both on record and even more so live … super performance and, for me personally, a great start to the festival.“ – bierschinken.net
“As expected, instruments are being manhandled, but the raw edge on the vocals adds a unique twist to the whole. The added bits on lead guitar fit in perfectly with the punk vibe of the music.” –smashpress.nl
“MARCH grabs you by the throat. In some ways, the formation reminds us of Hole, but other bands cross our mind. We don’t get much time to mull it over since there’s so much to see on stage.” – rockportaal.nl
QUOTES: SET LOOSE (2020)
“A great mix of profound lyrical content and riff mastery” – visions.de – 8/12
“A fine, unexpectedly fresh album that goes back and forth between soft and heavier Fat Wreck tones … MARCH are the cheeky, hedonistic Punk’n’Roll siblings of THE DONNAS or HOLE” – Fuze magazine (DE) #081
“Wild, unbound, danceable, moshable, fiery, sparkling. A Punk/HC monster named MARCH” – Slam zine (DE)
QUOTES: STAY PUT (2016):
“Going crazy on a fine piece of authentic punkrock… Catchy hooks and ditto vocals made me play the tracks at the unholiest of times. Like a neurotic junk
soothing himself with the thought: Just one more, and everything will be OK again.” – nmth.nl
“MARCH do not do anything wrong on Stay Put. The whole thing sounds solid, driving and simply loud: honest punk rock’n’roll …” – Ox-fanzine.de – 7/10
