[MUSIC NEWS] DOWN AND OUT Release New Single

Adelaide pop punk band Down And Out are today welcoming their zestful, catchy new single, “Sidelines“, streaming everywhere today. 

Delivering an energetic track full of punchy verses and anthemic choruses, Down And Out flew to Sydney in 2021 to record with producer Stevie Knight (Yours Truly, Stand Atlantic). With a mission in motion to produce a track that exudes energy and confidence inspired by the likes of The Story So Far and Neck Deep, the band passionately highlight their message, that life is here to be lived, on the new single.

Sidelines” takes aim at capitalism and its impact on the less fortunate who are left “broken down but trying”. Vocalist Luke Ganeo explains that the track is “...a song about how the rich get richer and the rest of us continue to work our fingers to the bone for those who profit off of it. It talks about the impacts of capitalism, and how it drains resources out of the developing world in order to enrich the wrong people. While none of this is particularly new, very few people are ready to point the finger directly at those at fault.”

Down And Out share maturity through the single without taking from their ability to have some fun. For those new to Down And Out, “Sidelines” demonstrates a a strong entrance into the pop rock sonic space the quintet occupy. Ten of Swords Media Collective further ties the bouncing track together with colourful and dramatic visuals that show the quirky yet impassioned side of this single.

To celebrate the release of “Sidelines“, Down And Out are launching the single live at UniBar in Adelaide on June 25. Drastic ParkLickity Split and Mums Favourite step up to support the occasion. Tickets available via Moshtix.

With foundations inspired by a variation of influences and interests, the band are working towards a yet-to-be-announced extended release, covering themes that tackle everything from relationships and heartbreak to political corruption and thoughtful revelations.

Forming in 2018, Down And Out is brought to life by Luke Ganeo (Lead) Alec Ganeo (Guitarist) Blake Danher (Guitarist) Bradley Billing (Bass) and Henry Armstong (Drums). The band recently jumped up to support RedHook and The Dead Love on the Bring Ya MatesTour in April and have previously joined forces playing with Adelaide favourites in NO NO NO NO NOLarsenAgapantherWolf & Chain and more.
