Formed in 2018, Stay For Tomorrow are an energetic four piece alternative rock band from Dunfermline. Inspired by the likes of Twin Atlantic, Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters, they burst onto the Fife scene in 2019 with their debut single Kings and Queens. Several singles later (Rumours + Criminal) we fast forward to 2021 with the releases I Don’t Need You To Save Me, Non Applicable (Na Na), The One, Prison Living and most recently Lipstick Lips, which saw the band raise their profile and progress further with record amounts of airplay and streaming numbers! Over the past 12 months they have supported the likes of Anchor Lane, Massive Wagons and Inglorious, and they have recently returned from a successful run of English tour dates.
New Single Kings and Queens (2023 Version) is available now https://linktr.ee/stayfortomorrowofficial
The single itself is a rerecorded version of their debut single which was released 5 years ago, and will appear on the forthcoming physical release ‘The Story So Far’ which will feature all the band’s previous singles.
“Kings and Queens is the happy/sad anthem to scream your heart out to. It tells the all too familiar story of a past relationship and the attempts to rekindle it, how two people can change throughout the years and are no longer who they once knew.
‘Cos life isn’t like the movies, or the fairytale since your teens. And I won’t be your king, my queen’
To us, Kings and Queens certainly brings an element of nostalgia to our early days as the original was our debut single that we self-recorded and produced. Over time, we have shaped our sound as a band and over the past few years of playing the song live, it has grown and developed significantly. Kings and Queens is certainly a fan favourite and we wanted to make sure we did it justice by remaking it from the ground up. Comparing the original release to what we have to offer now shows how far we have come as a band and musicians.” – Stay For Tomorrow
