Biography English  |  Biografie Nederlands


When Exit31 formed in 2003, few would have expected this band to sign a record deal just 20 months later. But in June 2005 YeaYeaYeah records asked them to do just that. Their debut album Phonogenic was released just a year later, and it didn't take long before recording sessions for their second album started. This self-titled album was released in 2008, and since then Exit31 has been gigging The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United States.

Long-time fans have witnessed the band grow up. From their upbeat punkrock roots, they slowly graduated into modern rock adulthood; sturdy drums with melodic bass, catchy guitar riffs and high energy vocals are what gave Exit31 the electrifying live reputation they earned. Themes like 'I love you' made room for worry (Real Disaster), exile (One In A Million), sexual outbursts (Killer Body), defiance (My Hate) and -yes indeed- family life (Lullaby).

After a brief hiatus in 2012, Exit31 picked up their studio activities with the double sided cd single Back To You/Chase Them Away. Almost immediately, the band went back into the studio -only interrupted by their acclaimed 'On Your Couch' acoustic summer tour- to write and record their third full-length studio album. Killer Body (released in 2014) has lived up to the high expectations from fans and critics alike.

Exit31's latest release (May 2017) is WOOD, their first fully acoustic studio album featuring adaptations from earlier records, as well as new material.
