Interview: Brandon Schwartzel of FIDLAR

Short for ‘Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk,’ L.A.-based skate-punks FIDLAR have been touring in support of their self-titled debut and have taken Chicago’s own teen garage rockers, The Orwells, along for the ride including a sold-out Halloween show at Subterranean.

FIDLAR spews raw and rowdy party odes like “Wake Bake Skate” and “Cheap Beer” to match the sweat and PBR-drenched pit at their shows. We caught up with bassist Brandon Schwartzel somewhere between a New York City all-nighter and a sound check in Philly to discuss planning for an upcoming album, their party music preferences, and Halloween costume choices.
