(TeamRock Radio) FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper says he kicked his drug habit as he didn't want to die young. The band release second album Too on September 2 and Carper reports writing and recording the new material helped him work through his issues.

He tells Stereogum: "The way that I look at it is through the whole first FIDLAR album cycle and the tour, I was basically this crazy person on drugs.

"On this new record, I'm just a crazy person. I stopped doing heroin, I stopped doing meth, I stopped smoking crack, so now all I'm left with is just being this crazy person who's trying to deal with it - and the way that I dealt with it was writing songs."

He says he's been clean for a year and adds: "I'm not going to stay f***ed up just to fit in or because that's what people want me to be. I don't want to die when I'm f***ing 28." Read more here.
