Sydney Punks Down For Tomorrow Drop Walloping New Single ‘Dark Comedy’ & Tour Dates

Sydney’s Down For Tomorrow are flexing some Brit-punk chops on their smashing new single ‘Dark Comedy’.

The indie four-piece contemplate the humour of life’s tragic twists and turns in the Lachlan Mitchell-produced track, which delves into the heavier elements of the group’s refined punk sound.

“There’s a quote I read in a book from a theatre-obsessed Augustus,” explains lead vocalist and guitarist Cody Stebbings.

“Apparently, his last words were ‘have I played my part in the farce of life well enough?’ I’d like to say that’s what inspired the song – it didn’t – but I think it nails the point. Life is merely a series of unfortunate occurrences, dramatic mishaps and ridiculous interactions. And in hindsight, it’s fucking hilarious.”

He continues: “We’re at the point where things are so incredibly bad that it’s basically a Monty Python skit. People I know have become so desensitised from calamity that the next repeated error can be laughed at as if to say, ‘I told you so’.

“Laughter is the answer to chaos and darkness. And while there’s irritation with every obstacle that life throws at us, sometimes the best antidote is to find the hilarity between the cracks.”

To coincide with the release, the band has announced a pair of headline dates in Melbourne and Sydney, ahead of a national tour this May supporting mates RedHook and The Dead Love.
