Following yesterday's (July 14) premiere of FIDLAR's newly re-recorded "West Coast" single, the California pop-punks have issued a video love letter to the cities they've travelled through over the last several years.
A press release explains that the Ryan Baxley-directed travelogue preserves personal footage captured around the world. It's unclear exactly what stages are hit in the video, but the peppy tune includes in-song shout-outs to Seattle, Portland and more.
Above, you'll find the band sharing the stage with a Louisville Slugger-equipped Slipknot refugee, singing about passing out in bathrooms, and downing post-show beers at house parties.
As previously reported, "West Coast" had previously appeared on FIDLAR's 2012 demos EP, Shit We Recorded in Our Bedroom. This latest version will pop up on the band's forthcoming Too, which arrives September 4 via Wichita/Mom + Pop/Dine Alone.
