About the artist
The band's name is an acronym for 'Fuck It Dog, Life's a Risk', a skate mantra gleaned from singer Zac Carper's former roommates. Originally, FIDLAR went under the name 'Fuck The Clock', as referenced in their song 'Cheap Beer'. Three years after recording their first songs they stepped on stage together with The Black Lips and went on tour with The Hives.
In 2012, FIDLAR were named one of Stereogum's '40 Best New Bands of 2012'.
