L.A. garage-rockers Fidlar posted a major announcement via YouTube today (Dec. 12), and you can check it out above. After several months away and nearly two years since their self-titled debut, the foursome will return for a show at the Regent in L.A. on Jan. 23.

Most interesting is how the band members spent their short-lived hiatus. The video shows the guys of Fidlar sitting at a table as text scrolls on top, explaining that two of the band members were evicted, another was working on his method acting for a Joan of Arc role, while a third was writing avant-garde music inspired by R.L. Stine’s ‘Goosebumps’ series.

Needless to say, it sounds like it’ll be an interesting show -- you can grab tickets here.
