What Happened to Fidlar

At the time of the pandemic, the band had not been so active, especially on their social media accounts, which left their fans worried and wondering.

This may be because their contracts are up. Their management agency, BFrankmanagement, doesn’t follow them anymore on their Instagram. The fans felt that FIDLAR has been the one solely handling their social media pages. 

Luckily for their fans, the band has produced a new song recently called Sand on the Beach.
