Southern California punk band FIDLAR have returned with their new single, “FSU,” the debut taste of the band’s forthcoming EP arriving in early 2023.
Back after a three year hiatus, the band has come out swinging with their first original music since the release of their third studio album ALMOST FREE in 2019. Produced by Grammy Award-winning recording mastermind Dave Sardy (Spoon, LCD Soundsystem, Red Hot Chili Peppers), “FSU” is abrasive in all the right ways, as frontman Zac Carper’s guttural vocals and lyricism are point-blank as ever as he rally cries “I’ve been waking up, getting so fucked up. I’m so fucked up, trying to fuck shit up.” Combined with walls of instrumentation that crash and recede like violent waves, the track is a brutally truthful shout into the void.
“New FIDLAR is leaning into the extremes,” says the band. “Loud, louder, loud. Three chords and the truth. Catchy and obnoxious. Lyrics are very thought mouth. It’s speaking to the FIDIOTS of the world.”
