Watch The Video For Horsin’ Around

“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.

Tracks like Reefer Madness, Cause Tomorrow and OH MY GAIAI! sees Kids Of Yesterday at their most energetic while the songs Woman Of Stars and The Directors Cut show the softer side of the band. On recent single Mad World they belt out their own punk rock version of the Tears For Fears hit single. A late edition to the album, the cover was added during the last days of recording. Considering what everyone has been going through this year, you can understand why Kids Of Yesterday decided that this song needed a revival. While the track has been covered many times, the band make it their own, starting off acoustic, it develops into an up-tempo punk rock anthem.
Kids of Yesterday is the brainchild of singer/ guitarist / chief songwriter Duncan Davidson. The band first formed in 2010 in the jam room of a Tempe share-house. Over the years founding members Duncan Davidson and Joseph Lamond have been joined by many talented musicians in the line up, as the band gigged frequently throughout Sydney, while self-releasing several EP. Fast forward to 2020 and we have the culmination of all those years with the release of of the bands debut album Escape Planet.
