Today, Sydney punk rock band Kids Of Yesterday release their version of the Tears For Fears hit Mad World. The single is off the bands debut album Escape Planet, out this Friday!
Mad World sees Kids Of Yesterday belt out their own 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.
Mad World is the third single to be released off the bands debut album Escape Planet, out independently this Friday Nov 27.
Escape Planet was recorded at The Grove studios on the central coast of NSW with producer Jack Nigro (DMA’s, Skegss, Vacations). Kids Of Yesterday have combined elements of Frenzal Rhomb, Rise Against, Frank Turner and NOFX with their own brash form of punk on their debut album. For fans of late 90’s classic punk rock from Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records, this will be one of the best Australian punk rock records released this year.
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 EPs.
ICYMI Kids Of Yesterday have already released two singles from their debut album, Reefer Madness and Woman Of Stars.
