Debeli Precjednik / Fat Prezident from Osijek, Croatia, have been rocking hard since 1994. These legendary veterans are today praised as one of the best hardcore punk bands from the Balkan area, and rightly so! 

They have played countless shows all around Europe, slowly but steadily building a strong fanbase in all ex-YU states. Today Fat Prezident is synonymous with Croatian (and regional) melodic punk rock. Known for their strong charisma on stage, their live shows are permeated by a joyfully bacchanal atmosphere. Debeli Precjednik have released numerous LPs and EPs: ‘Rat (Her) Burnt His Record’ (Dirty Old Town, 1998); ‘Fist From The East’ (Double Penetration Records, 2002); ‘Through The Eyes Of The Innocent’ (Moonlee Records, 2006); ‘Bruto Slavo / VBK’ (Moonlee Records, 2012), ‘Povijest bolesti’ (Moonlee Records, 2014) and lastly 'Godina Majmuna / Majmun godine' (Dirty Old Label, Dostava Zvuka, Moonlee Records, 2016), a split LP with fellow Croatian punk rockers Mašinko. 

Debeli Precjednik create fast, energetic and anthemic punk-rock tunes defined by Tin's idiosyncratic vocals and instantly memorable guitar riffs. Switching between Croatian and English, their lyrics touch upon everyday matters as well as more serious political issues. All in all, if you dare to call yourself a fan of bands such as Strung Out, Good Riddance, Rise Against, Satanic Surfers, Poison Idea and SNFU, you will love this band by default.
