The Rodfields foundation was placed on a nice terras in Enschede. After talking a bit about music they decided to start a band together. Some time later Bastian and Rutger joined the band. The Rodfields are all Self taught musicians and like to experiment with new instruments and techniques.
In July 2017 they played their first gig and got a nice taste of playing on stage and did a lot more gigs after. Including their biggest gig: an own show in the Metropool in their home city Hengelo.
In October the same year they released their first album “Mental Bleeding”. A hard rock album full of the first and newest songs of The Rodfields.
At this point in time they are creating their second studio album. “We can’t say much about it right now but please hold your seats we promise the release ‘ll be epic and really satisfying”
