– Pilerats (AUS)

Sydney-based indie-punk quartet Down For Tomorrow have just returned with their vigorous new single ‘Trouble Prone’– produced and mixed by Stevie Knight (Yours Truly, Stand Atlantic, The Dead Love).
‘Trouble Prone’ opens with searing guitars and hefty drums, fiercely picking up momentum before exploding into a chorus coated with conviction. Instrumentation effortlessly blends with the emotionally driven melody, as deftly composed lead guitar brightly shines above. The track momentarily dives down into its melancholic bridge, building intensely to a raucous final chorus.
Alongside the release of the track is the mischievous accompanying music video, written and directed by Robbie Walcott. Paying homage to late 90’s cult films ‘Snatch’ and ‘Trainspotting’, the video features an intricate plot with a twist ending, as a supposedly fixed underground ping-pong tournament final doesn’t quite go to plan. The clip stars Australian actors Neel Kolhatkar and Adam Boys.
Lead singer Cody Stebbings talks about the story behind ‘Trouble Prone’:
“Everybody hates ghosting, yet a lot of us are guilty of doing it – myself included. So, you could say this song is a dig at the hypocrisy of ghosting people, and at those who don’t understand that their lives are a reflection of their attitude and how they treat people. It’s also a dig at myself too. Working with Robbie for the music video was also an absolute blast. Watching him bring these brilliant ideas to life, and having Neel and Adam playing the lead roles, as well as having our management and some good mates in the clip, it was all a fantastic experience.”
While the band has been forced off the road due to restrictions, Down For Tomorrow are continuing to work on their forthcoming staggered EP titled ‘Whatever Happens’, from which the group will be releasing new singles in the coming months. Recently released tracks ‘Show Me That You Care’, ‘Emily’ and ‘Until You Feel Alright’ will also feature on the record.
Previous releases have been strongly supported by Spotify, Apple Music, triple j, triple j Unearthed, Flux FM (DEU) and Australian community radio. They’ve also received online praise from Pilerats, Hysteria Magazine, Savage Thrills, Surviving The Golden Age (USA), Music Feeds, The AU Review, Wickedd Childd, The Music and Backyard Opera.
Down For Tomorrow have consistently traversed the East-Coast of Australia, having shared stages with The Maine (USA), The Dangerous Summer (USA), As It Is (USA), British India and Bootleg Rascal. They also made an appearance at Brisbane’s Mountain Goat Valley Crawl in February.
