FIDLAR drops Video For “Why Generation”

FIDLAR release new video for their latest single "Why Generation"

This morning, FIDLAR shared their new emoji inspired music video for “Why Generation.” Check out the clip below.

Directed by longtime collaborator Ryan Baxley (“Cocaine”, “40oz. On Repeat”, “West Coast”) and animated by Nolan Fabricius, the clip reimagines FIDLAR’s notoriously rowdy live show in a world created entirely out of the popular social messaging characters.

FIDLAR’s latest effort, Too, was released in September and is now available now via Mom + Pop Music.

last fall, FIDLAR wrapped up a two month sold out U.S. headline tour with a two night hometown stand at the Regent Theater. During that tour, they also performed at Austin City Limits Music Festival, Boston Calling, Riot Fest and Beach Goth. In November, the band embarked on a UK/European tour including a date at London’s historic Forum.

Starting today, FIDLAR will hit the road for two weeks in Australia and New Zealand, appearing on the St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival along with Grimes, Vince Staples, CHVRCHES and others. This summer, FIDLAR will perform at Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball and other festivals in the US, UK and Europe to be announced soon.

FIDLAR is Zac Carper (guitars/vocals), Elvis Kuehn (guitars/vocals), Brandon Schwartzel (bass), and Max Kuehn (drums). Since forming in 2009, FIDLAR quickly became one of the Los Angeles music scene’s most celebrated live acts thanks to their raucous live shows, which often concluded with the majority of audience members joining the band on-stage. Since formation, the band has toured the world and played with The Pixies, The Hives, Black Lips, OFF!, Jeff The Brotherhood, The Orwells, Wavves, The Delta Spirit and more. Their debut self-titled full-length album was released in the U.S. in January of 2013.
