“…a piss taking paean to the FIDLAR drummer’s love of smokes, weed, Mexican fast food, lie-ins, dubstep and video games, neatly tied up with a gutter Beach Boys chorus.” –  NME


(MARCH 7, 2012 – TORONTO, ON) — Clutching armfuls of critical plaudits and an ever-growing reputation for their live outings – L.A’s FIDLAR have just released the video for their latest single “Max Can’t Surf”. To check it out visit: http://bit.ly/WN5Ock


Lifted from the band’s self-titled debut album, which was released in Canada through Dine Alone Records, the track succinctly captures the band’s brilliance – short, sharp, exhilarating injections of melody, fun and infectious exuberance! FIDLAR play it like they say it.


The band is set to play several shows at this year’s SxSW Festival in Texas and have also confirmed a North American tour with like-minded soul mates Wavves. The tour includes two Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. Full tour details are below.
