After releasing three preview singles last year, SoCal punk rockers FIDLAR has confirmed that its new six-track EP, That’s Life, will be out Mach 17. Another fresh track from it, “Centipede,” is out today (Feb. 17), in tandem with a video directed by Ryan Baxley.


That’s Life is FIDLAR’s first official release since 2019’s Almost Free. It will be available in a limited-edition vinyl pressing in May through Digger’s Factory. “These are very addictive songs,” the band says of the new material, which was recorded with Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Spoon) at Rick Rubin’s famed Shangri-la Studio in Malibu, Ca. “They are meant to be heard if you want to feel. May cause drowsiness. Do not listen while operating heavy machinery.”

FIDLAR begins a month-plus tour tonight in Santa Cruz, Ca., which includes a stop at the 30th anniversary edition of the Noise Pop festival in San Francisco as well as a visit to the Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta in May.

Here is the track list for That’s Life:
