All Music Guide:

In the midst of an underground skate punk resurgence, with bands like Cerebral Ballzy and Trash Talk garnering internet attention, FIDLAR was formed in Los Angeles. Influenced by So-Cal punk rockers like Offspring and blink-182, as well as older bands from the area -- which they learned about from their dad’s record collection; he was the guitarist of T.S.O.L. -- Max Kuehn and his brother Elvis were playing punk shows by their teens. By the time they were out of high school, Zac Carper and Brandon Schwartzel joined up. Later the group went the D.I.Y. route and started a home-spun label to record material, while embracing the reaches of the internet and making several videos to promote their music, and as motivation to film their drunken antics. Mom & Pop signed the group in 2012 for their debut album, FIDLAR, which was released in early 2013.

Wikipedia:

FIDLAR is a skate punk/garage punk band from Los Angeles California, currently signed to Mom + Pop Music in the US, Wichita Recordings in the UK and Dine Alone Records in Canada.

The band's name is an acronym for 'Fuck It Dawg, 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'.Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{reflist}} template (see the help page).
