FIDLAR share details of second album ‘Too’

FIDLAR have shared details of their second album 'TOO.' The band has also shared "40 oz on repeat," the first single and video .

FIDLAR have announced the release of their second album, Too, which will be released on September 4th via Mom + Pop Music/Dine Alone Records.

Too was produced by Jay Joyce and 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. 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.”

FIDLAR are sharing the first taste of Too with a music video for the album’s first single “40oz. On Repeat.” Directed by Ryan Baxley, the video is a 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.” A complete list of video masterpieces that inspired the “40oz. On Repeat.”

FIDLAR have announced an extensive headlining U.S. tour to take place in September and October. The live run will kick off in Denver, CO on September 9th and wrap up on Halloween for a hometown show at the Regent Theatre.
