Fidlar have shared not one, but two new singles from their forthcoming fourth album, Surviving The Dream.

The LA punks say that they have elected to preview the album, which they self-produced at Balboa Recording Studio, with the songs Fix Me and Get Off My Wave “because it represents the energy we pull off live", with frontman Zac Carper adding “It’s all about the sad moshpit.”

“This record is about doubling down on what you love,” Carper says. “For us, it’s about playing shows and making music. Coming back after a few years away, our intention was to self-make an album that the 3 of us are stoked on. We’re very very very pumped on it and what’s to come. These songs are meant to be heard live with the fellow FIDIOTS going off.”

The  trio have also announced a tour in support of their new record, launching on September 23 at the Catalyst club in Santa Cruz, California and running through to Halloween, when they'll close out the run at the Bellwether in their hometown.
