There's a new FIDLAR album on the way.

The Los Angeles-based band will put out 'Almost Free', the follow up to 2015's 'Too', on January 25 through Mom & Pop. It will feature the previously shared tracks Alcohol and Too Real, but not Are You High?. That is only physically available as a b-side on a bonus 7" flexi disc of new single Can't You See, which is included with certain album bundles.

Discussing the new track, guitarist and vocalist Elvis Kuehn said:

“[Can't You See] is about believing you need external things to be fulfilled, when really that comes from within yourself.  Play it loud while driving around Los Angeles and it’ll make sense."

About the record, he added

"It was about taking the ceiling off. Having it be limitless. Ain't no rules. '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."

Head below to listen to the new single. It is yet another curve ball from the band, this time musically digging into their classic rock influences and previewing yet another side of the new album and themselves, leaving behind the chaotic, punk sensibilities of the previously shared cuts.

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
