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 Dog, Life's A Risk', or 'Forget It Dad, Lifes All Right' 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'.
