FIDLAR Announce New LP ‘SURVIVING THE DREAM’

"This record is about doubling down on what you love...”

FIDLAR will release new album ‘SURVIVING THE DREAM’ on September 20th.

The LA band are back, with news of their first studio album in over five years. CLASH caught up with FIDLAR a few months back on a UK run, and in-between getting them to tattoo our leg they spilled the beans on some exciting new plans.

So, ‘SURVIVING THE DREAM’. It’s a 13-song record and lands on September 20th, with FIDLAR singer Zac Carper commenting:

“This record is about doubling down on what you love. For us, it’s about playing shows and making music. Coming back after a few years away, our intention was to self-make an album that the 3 of us are stoked on. We’re very very very pumped on it and what’s to come. These songs are meant to be heard live with the fellow FIDIOTS going off.”

Because it’s FIDLAR, the band return with not one but two new singles, blending the more emotive side of their work with some mosh pit starting mayhem. Zac continues…

“We picked these two songs to lead off the record because it represents the energy we pull off live… It’s all about the sad moshpit. And having Sosie agree to be part of the video was just awesome. We did karaoke with her on her birthday and she killed it. When we came up with the idea, she was the only choice. She’s perfect.”
