Fidlar “40oz On Repeat,” Announce New Album “Too,” and Tour Dates

It’s a good day. Fidlar are back.
The no-bullshit, LA garage punk band first roared onto the scene in 2013 with their self-titled debut and now, they have announced their return with their sophomore album, Too, set to release September 4th via Mom + Pop.
The twelve-track is set off with the lead single 40oz On Repeat. The track has been out but now we get to see the official video. I think I can safely say it’s a contender for one of the best videos this year. The video is full of irony, with lyrics like “I just scream and shout that I’ll never sell out, I’ll never sell out, man! (Wait, how much?)” and delivers some budget versions (loved that take on it) of famous videos in the past. Filled with cardboard, props, and sets they dress up like everyone from Missy Elliot, Britney Spears, Beastie Boys, Jamiroquai, and tons more.

<p>Most important thing to know about me is that I’m a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I’m on the front row on the barricade of a concert… I feel that I am truly home.<br /> I’m also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it’s searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops… I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable.<br /> I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces.<br /> Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures.<br /> Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook: @youthquakermimi</p>
