FIDLAR Announces New Album ‘Too’ & Music Video For Lead Single “40oz. On Repeat”

June 2nd 2015

Don’t call it a comeback. FIDLAR announced today that they will release their second full length album, Too, on September 4th via Mom + Pop Music.

Produced by Jay Joyce, Too was recorded in Nashville over the span of just two weeks. The 12-song collection of pop-infused garage rock expands on the band’s 2013 self-titled album that put them at the forefront of modern punk music. The new album showcases a band that continues to fine-tune its sonic approach while also highlighting a more introspective and revelatory approach to songwriting. It also marks the first time the band has worked with a producer.

“We could have made record number one again… but instead we decided to challenge ourselves and admit that we don’t know everything,” said guitarist and lead vocalist Zac Carper. “Up until this point we had recorded everything ourselves, so working with a producer taught us so much. I didn’t want to make a standard rock record. The goal for this album was to think outside the box and I think Jay really helped us do that.”

In addition to the album announcement, FIDLAR provided a taste into what can be expected from Too, with a music video for the album’s leading track and first single 40oz. On Repeat. Directed by Ryan Baxley, the must-watch video is a hilarious “Be Kind Rewind” tribute to past music video masterpieces, sure to conjure loving nostalgia for anyone who came of age during the glory years of MTV’s afternoon video countdown show Total Request Live. “In the late 90s and early 2000s, music videos were such a huge deal,” adds Carper. “We decided that instead of making one overly slick music video, we would nod to 15 of our favorite music videos that we grew up with. Everyone in the band threw in their ideas.” Watch the video below:

Physical preorders for CD and LP bundles can be found here, as well as links to digital preorders. With digital preorders, you automatically get a download of 40oz. On Repeat.

FIDLAR Offer Up Hilarious Rendition of Sheryl Crow’s ‘If It Makes You Happy’

January 16th 2015

FIDLAR covering “If It Makes You Happy”, aka just what you need to help carry you into your three day weekend. Let it be known that I will never be able to look at Sheryl Crow the same way again.

“FIDLAR’s publicist confirms that LP2 is “in the works.” – Stereogum

FIDLAR play LA’s Regent Theater on January 23, the band’s first show in almost a year(!), and what promises to be an extremely debaucherous warm-up for the rest of their year, with other plays already planned for Burgerama, Shaky Knees Festival, and more.


FIDLAR Have Something Very Important, And Very Serious, To Tell You

December 12th 2014

…psych! In very exciting news, FIDLAR have announced their first headline show in almost a year(!), and will be appearing at LA’s Regent Theater on January 23. Tickets are on sale right now. Act fast, these are going to fly (and so are bodies, you know like, through the air).

Our lucky LA friends will also be treated to a second helping of FIDfun in March, when the band will headline day three of Burgerama Four, sharing a bill with the likes of Weezer, Ty Segall, Gang of Four, Ariel Pink, Beach Fossils, and more.
