Today, FIDLAR released their new single, “By Myself,” premiered globally as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record in the World” on BBC Radio 1. To celebrate, they decided to crack one open with the boys No Parents, Criminal Hygiene, Danny Bengston (Together Pangea), Kelsey Reckling (and Bocky), Cadien (Twin Peaks), The Side Eyes, Benjamin Booker, Sunny War, Matthew Zuk, Brian Rodriguez, The Frights, No Win, John Doe and DJ Bonebrake (X), Tropa Magica, Zachary “Penske” Cox, Misses Joseph Herzog, Shelly Schimek, Nate Mercereau, Culture Abuse, Barbara (@poserfeel), Alice Baxley, SWMRS, The McGinnis Family, NOBRO, Dicky Presto, Jimmy Russo, Ronald Ray-Gun, FIDIOTS, Dune Rats, Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist (The Hives), Matt Caughthran (The Bronx), Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal), Jonah Ray and Taran Killam for the song’s video. The track comes from the band’s highly anticipated new album, Almost Free, out January 25 on Mom+Pop and available for pre-order now.

Lead singer/guitarist Zac Carper explains the ironically anthemic song (“Well I’m cracking one open with the boys, by myself”) written in Hawaii, “I called up all my homies to have a drink with me and no one showed up. What a bunch of kooks.” The track follows previous singles “Alcohol,” “Too Real” and “Can’t You See,” which now has over 2 million streams on Spotify.

At 10am on New Year’s Day, the band announced a special release day show at The Echo in their hometown of Los Angeles (where they held their debut album release show) and it sold out in 20 minutes. Wanting the show to be “Almost Free” for fans, the band sold tickets for $5 each. On Monday, they announced their “Almost Free – Part Too” show presented by KROQ at The Teragram Ballroom on 1/26  that sold out in under an hour. Today, they have added an in-store appearance at Amoeba Records on 1/24 where fans will be able to purchase the album the day before release. The band then flies to London for release week activities including an underplay gig  at Heaven on 1/31.  A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.

Almost Free touches on many of the tragedies and irritations of modern life: existential dread, gentrification, the inescapable sway of the super-rich and the self-involved, post-breakup telecommunication, performative wokeness, the loneliness of sobriety or the lack thereof. But through sheer force of imagination and an unchecked joie de vivre, the L.A.-based band manages to turn feeling wrong into something glorious and essential. In the age of joyless self-care, Almost Free makes a brilliant case for being less careful, for living without fear of fucking up, and possibly embracing any incurred damage as a lucky symptom of being alive.

The album sees the band pushing boundaries into new territory and influences while staying true to their unshakable core. “A lot of the vibe was, ‘Well, why can’t we do that? Why can’t we have horns? Why can’t we have key changes? Why can’t we have a harmonica loop?’,” Zac Carper said. “It was about taking the ceiling off. Having it be limitless. Ain’t no rules.” Elvis Kuehn added, “Almost Free feels like a step forward for us in a lot of ways. We tried to be true to ourselves and let the music come out naturally, without fear of how people would receive it.”
