Singled Out: Killer Deluxe's Tomorrow Is Yesterday

Killer Deluxe (Andy Waldeck and Chris Reardon) recently released their self-titled debut album and to celebrate we asked Chris to tell us the story behind the single "Tomorrow Is Yesterday". Here is the story:

"Tomorrow Is Yesterday" is a cautionary tale about watching someone you deeply care about go barreling down a destructive path with booze and drugs. We came at this subject matter from both sides, having lived in that vortex and having seen dear friends not come out of it. But rather than address it in a maudlin way, we felt the driving pulse of our track perfectly conveyed that sense of invincibility that the addict often tricks themselves into believing. There are several references to the false confidence that substance abuse fosters: "you believe youšre a renegade, got your blinders on, you're on a roll baby."

However, the song is not an indictment of anyone going through a hard time with self medication, but more an expression of the frustration their friends and loved ones feel, watching the flame out but unable to break through with some sanity. The title merely refers to that Groundhog Day feeling of replaying the same bad scene over and over.

Our bridge offers some redemption and urges our protagonist to ditch the leeches and fair-weather friends who just want to keep the party rolling: "Donšt give a damn what they say / you're in a bad way baby."

But as with all Killer Deluxe jams, melody is king. Even when we try to deliver a serious message, a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down; you know the rest.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
