Today, Sydney skate punk band Kids Of Yesterday drop a video for their latest single Horsin’ Around, off their debut album Escape Planet.
“Based on true events, ‘Horsin’ Around’ aims to make you think twice about chucking that pineapple on the trots. The gambling and racing industry create ‘wastage’ that extends far beyond the lives that wind up in your pets bellies. If you manage to squint through it’s fun sensory overload, you’ll see it for the machine churning suffering into profit that it is” – Duncan Davidson
Escape Planet was recorded at The Grove studios on the central coast of NSW. The album was produced by the band and Jack Nigro (DMA’s, Skegss, Vacations).
Kids Of Yesterday have combined elements of Frenzal Rhomb, Bad Religion, Rise Against, Frank Turner and NOFX with their own brash form of punk on their debut album Escape Planet. For fans of late 90’s classic skate punk from Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records.
Escape Planet opens up with uptempo punk number Twenty Fifteen which sets the tone for the rest of the album. Thought provoking lyrics, aggressive yet melodic guitars along with vocal harmonies akin to Green Day, this is seriously some of the catchiest, well written skate punk to come out of Australia in a long, long time.
