While the album was recorded in several different locations -- including the iconic Sunset Sound and Sonic Ranch, a studio in the Texas border town of Tornillo -- much of the material came straight from homemade demos. "On the last record we took the demos and re-recorded everything in the studio, but this process was more like how we worked in the beginning," says Elvis. "I feel like it got us back to that original feeling we had when we first started making music together, instead of just pushing everything out on a deadline."FIDLAR's origins trace back to 2009, when Elvis (whose dad played in the legendary punk band T.S.O.L., and who joined his own first punk band at age 13) landed an internship at a recording studio where Zac worked as an engineer, and the two started jamming in the off-hours. "I remember one day we went out to get a Little Caesar's pizza and Elvis put on Songs for the Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age and I was like, 'I love this record,'" Zac recalls. "That was the moment when it just connected for me: 'We're gonna be in a band together.'" With Brandon and Elvis's kid brother and lifelong bandmate Max brought into the fold, the four musicians felt an immediate chemistry but had no real direction. "There wasn't any kind of plan to become a working band," says Elvis. "We just all really wanted to make loud rock & roll music."Throughout Almost Free, FIDLAR match their stronger sense of purpose with the ineffable magic that's always driven them -- most notably, that pure and palpable love of playing together. "We were so young when this started, we were just partying and being kids, and FIDLAR took on a life of its own," says Zac. "I really thought I was going to be working on other people's music for the rest of my life, and that would be it. In my wildest imagination I never would've thought that this all would've worked out the way it did -- but that's how life happens in general. That's the classic story." Pancho and the Wizards Pancho and the Wizards are a Hard Rock/Psych Punk band from San Luis Obispo. Since 2015 they've released 2 full length albums, and in April of 2019 a six track EP titled, "Cemetery" was released. Pancho is extremely energetic, fast, fun, and is the perfect addition to any bill. Having played over 100 shows from San Francisco to Los Angeles, Pancho has shared the stage with bands such as The Garden, The Frights, Tijuana Panthers, Bleached, The Queers, The Regrettes, Summer Twins, Cosmonauts, The Ataris, Levitation Room, Hot Flash Heat Wave, and hundreds of other amazing bands. Certainly an up and coming band, they dominate the small scene in SLO and have a 200+ person draw on most occasions in their hometown.
