FIDLAR "Punks" (ft. the Flaming Lips) (video)
Showing off a bit more of Too, the punk-minded dudes in FIDLAR have treated the record's "Punks" to its very own video. And they've teamed up with the Flaming Lips to do so.

As a press release explains, "the dystopian clip follows a working class protagonist's ill-fated journey to outer space to join an elite group of super chromosome money making power plants."

FIDLAR bassist Brandon Schwartzel also had this say about the video and working with the Lips:

Getting to make a video at the Womb using all of the Flaming Lips' resources was a dream come true. We had their entire warehouse at our disposal and there were always a bunch of 'freaks' hanging around offering to help us make cool stuff. There doesn't seem to be that much to do in Oklahoma City, so if you're a weird art kid, you're probably going to end up hanging out with the Flaming Lips. Something I really like about both of our bands is the preference for friends over professionals. Getting your friends together, giving them a job to do, and then watching them excel at it is super cool.

You can watch how the meeting of minds all comes together in future-tinged video to "Punks" below.

Along with the new video, FIDLAR have a massive string of tour dates coming up, including a newly announced fall U.S. trek. They will also play a few Canadian festival shows coming up, such as Levitation Vancouver this week and Ontario's WayHome festival. You can see the band's complete run of dates below.
