Kids Of Yesterday announce debut album ‘Escape Planet’

They've also shared the first single 'Reefer Madness'

Sydney’s Kids Of Yesterday have announced the forthcoming release of their debut album, ‘Escape Planet’.

To mark the announcement, the duo – comprised of Duncan Davidson and Joseph Lamond – have released the album’s first single, ‘Reefer Madness’, today (September 15).

According to a press release, the track takes its influence from the 1930’s anti-marijuana film of the same name and “seeks to undo the damage it caused to an industry that could quite literally save our species”.


In the accompanying official music video, ‘Reefer Madness’ sees Kids Of Yesterday give punk a comedic edge as black and white shots taken from the song’s namesake are intertwined with images of the band performing the song.
