Fat Alice, a pop-punk band from Wolverhampton, were formed in 2012 and play a mixture of energetic punk classics alongside more modern pop-punk covers and a steadily growing number of own individual songs. Their sound has been described as being their own take on the very well-known typical pop punk sound: mixing in heavier guitar riffs and solos with male/female harmonies and catchy lyrics that stick with you for days after you’ve heard them!

They are currently in the process of self-recording their first EP, entitled Game Over, which will be released in Winter 2013/14.
