Boxing Day is a five-piece Emo and Poppunk band from a small town in Belgium. Around April 2016, the band started writing original songs influenced by bands like the Wonder Years, Real Friends and Neck Deep. On the 1st of October 2016, they hit their first stage.
The following months, Boxing Day started playing shows, which resulted in their first EP "Lost and Found" (released in june 2017 through Bearded Punk Records). After supporting bands like No Trigger, Not on Tour, F.O.D. and Nowhere, the band found their 5th fellow sad boy: Stijn.
With the updated line-up, the band got in the studio for the second time with Tim De Gieter (Much Luv studio) to record a new EP "Retrospect", which they released through Real Ghost Records (UK) on December 26th 2018.
This resulted in their first UK tour in May 2019 with All Better (UK) and H_ngm_n (UK).
Boxing Day celebrated the past few years @ Nijdrop Opwijk on 28/02/2020, along with their friends and family.
On the 30th of April 2022, Boxing Day returned for one more night of sad-ish poppunk-ness. But who knows what the future will bring?
Armed with catchy, yet beautifully depressing songs, Boxing Day is ready to continue kicking ass and make as many people as possible feel. Like, things.
"Expertly done pop-punk with enough leanings to the latter of the two styles to not leave guitar fans out in the cold"
- Games, Brrraaains and a head-banging life
"The band's writing and sound has definitely grown since their first EP with the consistent combination of upbeat melodies that comes with modern pop-punk while also dipping their toes in the water of the emo genre blending that all together with a sound all their own."
- The Pop Punk Dad
"I've listened to fair amount of different bands in the genre and I have to say Boxing Day are among the best. There's a maturity in their songwriting that will attract older pop punk fans as well as youngsters just finding the genre."
