FIDLAR

Los Angles based FIDLAR will release their sophomore album, Too this Friday.  Recorded over a two week period in Nashville, the band delved deeper into their sound that put them at the forefront of Punk music today. “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.  This also marked the first time the group has worked with a producer (Jay Joyce). “Up until this point we had recorded everything ourselves, so working with a producer taught us so much. The goal for this album was to think outside the box and I think Jay really helped us do that.”  Download “40 Oz. On Repeat” off Too and learn more about FIDLAR at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
