“Being someone that has struggled with anxiety, when it came to writing ‘Creep,’ I really wanted to give an inside look on what anxiety feels like, the emotions you experience while in a panic attack, and the idea that the same mind that thinks of the beauty of life is also the one that thinks negative thoughts which can really drag you down. I found in my experience that some people didn’t understand what it was like to have anxiety and would just tell me to “be positive” or “just don’t think about it” and I wished they understood or could feel what was going on inside. My main goal with this song was to illustrate the war that goes on in your head when you have anxiety as well as how you can either choose to let fear overcome you or you can overcome that fear. – SYDNEY SHERWOOD

“Sydney is rock’s answer to pop’s P!NK or country’s Carrie Underwood, she exudes all the power and confidence and sings with no-nonsense authority, all while remaining firmly situated in heavy alternative rock. Sydney Sherwood cannot be merely compared to female singers of her generation and writes and performs with a conviction that fans of 3 Doors Down or Daughtry would instantly recognize.” – Joe Makoviecki (Singer, songwriter of Jackson Pines)

“Thanks for coming, man. Want some bum juice?”
“What the fuck is in this shit?”
“Tampico and Everclear. It’s pretty gross.”

When they started in 2009, seeing FIDLAR meant showing up to a house party and eventually having this exchange with one of them. Zac Carper, The bands guitarist and singer (well, one of ’em) would hand you a red cup , throw an arm around your neck and probably end up blurting out how fucked up he was. Their set list would read more like a grocery list of party supplies than a list of songs: “Cocaine. Cheap Beer. Chinese weed. Four Loko.”

After a few years of being a band Zac still plugs in his pedals attached to a skate deck (“Pedal board”, get it?) and says “Hi We’re FIDLAR: F-I-D-L-A-R. It means ‘Fuck It Dog, Life’s a Risk”. Seeing a FIDLAR set consists of drinking and dancing with people that are twice as drunk as you are while the band rips through songs about what they know best: The girl doesn’t call, my ex is a whore, I lost my phone, my car is a piece of shit, my friends are pieces of shit, I do too many drugs, I’m really awkward, I love Del Taco.

FIDLAR is Zac Carper, Elvis Kuehn, Brandon Schwartzel, and Max Kuehn. Elvis and Zac met at Kingsize Soundlabs in LA and recorded a ton of demos with the band before playing a live show. Their first show was on a FMLY bike ride at a skatepark in Culver City. Three years later the band has played with Black Lips, OFF!, Japanther and toured with The Hives. They’ve released two EP’s and just got back from touring Europe.

Listening to them, you can tell that the band did their homework on punk rock and seem dead set on inflicting lessons on anyone willing to listen. Any given song will give you a Germs influenced guitar solo, the catchy “Ooo’s” and “Ah’s” of The Misfits , and lyrics in the same family as Black Flag’s “Six Pack” and “TV Party” . On the same token they can just as easily be compared to any of the bands they cover (Blink 182, FEAR, CCR, Warron Zevon), yet it all comes across entirely their own: Surfier, Faster, more fuzzed out, more personal and a lot more drunk.

FIDLAR’s first LP is coming out via Mom + Pop and Wichita recordings. Recorded at their home studio, The album is set to be 14 tracks long and out in early 2013. FIDLAR are your dumbass friends that find a beer, scrape the shit off their shoes, and tell you how the hardest thing about waking up late and trying not to fuck up your life is having to do it with no job, no money and everyone bumming your cigarettes.

Press Quotes

“Punk’s not dead! And Fidlar are here from Los Angeles to prove it with three-chord thrashes that summon the spirit of 77” – Guardian

“Rock needs a band like this from time to time. Someone to remind all those Coldplay’s of the world where music’s balls are.” – Nylon Guys

“FIDLAR channel elements of classic acts like the White Stripes and Pixies, while practically begging for a co-headlining tour with contemporaries like Bass Drum of Death and JEFF the Brotherhood” – SPIN

“The tune can be summed up in a handful of image descriptions; sandboarding, grim reaper, suicidal flip-up hat, skull mask, and shred.” – Filter Magazine

“We all have a major music crush on FIDLAR here at VICE” – VICE

“They remind me of Pixies a lot (an obvious link, given the singer’s Frank Black style screeeeeeam), but there’s also some really, really nice’n’fuzzy guitars in there that sound like they’ve been nicked from the blueprint Death In Vegas followed on ‘Aiesha’.” – NME

“FIDLAR has an agressive, straightforward, but melodic conception of punk.” – LA Times

“But one wouldn’t mistake the band for one of its slacker subjects, not when they play this fast. The tracks sizzle with the aggression and bargain-price fidelity of the SoCal punk tradition, though FIDLAR’s catchy hooks have more in common with Social Distortion and Wavves than Black Flag. ” – MTV Buzz

FEAR Reworks The Record To Create The FEAR Record

FEAR is an American Punk Rock Band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1977, credited for influencing the American punk rock movement. Along with SEX PISTOLS , FEAR helped define the sound and style of Post, Neo-Punk, Jazz-Thrash-Fusion and theoretical physics! Although they actually formed during the first wave of punk back in 1977, FEAR didn’t release an album until two years later- by which time they’d honed a blistering, thrashy attack that, for all its fury, was surprisingly tight and even intricate.

Musically, the band wasn’t as crude as frontman Lee Ving’s outrageous, humorously offensive lyrics, which were geared to piss off anyone within earshot; might have had you believe. His intellectualism was equaled only by his “sincere love of beer.”

The band has continued to be active since 1978, most recently with the release of The FEAR Record. FEAR’s November 6, 2012 worldwide release of The FEAR Record will be supported by performances worldwide. Since FEAR began recording in 1979, bands such as A Perfect Circle, Soundgarden, Megadeth, Sacred Reich and Guns N’ Roses have covered their songs, a new collaboration with Lee Ving and the Foo Fighters called The Sound City Players is also slated for fall release. Future plans involve forays into presidential politics, quantum physics, Lee is a registered Quantum Mechanic, and a post-Newtonian, sub-atomic particle, probability based, theoretical physics, guide- lined peaceful world, with liberty and justice for all.
