NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: FIDLAR's 'Too'


FIDLAR's much-anticipated second album Too is available today on Mom+Pop. To purchase the album now click HERE.
 


In celebration of the album's release FIDLAR will participate in a tumblr IRL tonight at The Well in Downtown Los Angeles (1006 S. Olive St) at 7:00 PM. The event will feature visual art by the band's longtime collaborator Ryan Baxley as well as Zoe Zag, who illustrated the band's album artwork, and Alice Baxley. There will also be video projections, screen-printing, various on-site activations, and a very special surprise sure to please hometown FIDLAR fans. 

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.
 
Following appearances on the main stage of Reading and Leeds, FIDLAR will kick off an extensive headlining U.S. tour in Denver, CO on September 9th that wraps on Halloween for a two-night hometown stand at the Regent Theater. In November the band will embark on a European tour including a headlining date at London's historic Forum. Tickets for all dates are on-sale now and the band will continue to tour the world throughout 2016. See below for a complete list of upcoming dates.

FIDLAR is Zac Carper (guitars/vocals), Elvis Kuehn (guitars/vocals), Brandon Schwartzel (bass), and Max Kuehn (drums).  Since forming in 2009, FIDLAR quickly became one of the Los Angeles music scene's most celebrated live acts thanks to their raucous live shows, which often concluded with the majority of audience members joining the band on-stage. Since formation, the band has toured the world and played with The Pixies, The Hives, Black Lips, OFF!, Jeff The Brotherhood, The Orwells, Wavves, The Delta Spirit, and more. Their debut self-titled full-length album was released in the U.S. in January of 2013 and debuted at #5 on the Billboard Heatseakers Chart, #2 on the Alternative News Artist Chart, and was the #1 most added release at CMJ. Rolling Stone immediately called FIDLAR "a band to watch", asserting, "FIDLAR redefines the 'Golden State' skate/garage punk aesthetic for contemporary tastes." The Los Angeles Times described their sound as "Bratty, amphetamine punk rock made to soundtrack the noise of crushing cans on ones forehead." Noisey praised the band's "ever-growing catalog of readymade garage-punk classics that draw omnivorously on a half century of bad-ass pop, from Phil Spector to Nirvana to the late, great Jay Reatard." SPIN declared "These risk-taking, SoCal pop-punks unleash true sounds of liberty."
