Formed in 2018, Stay For Tomorrow are an energetic four piece alternative rock band emerging from Dunfermline, Scotland. Consisting of vocalist and rhythm guitarist Joe MacFarlane, lead guitarist Nic Holson, drummer Sean Priestley and bassist Ollie Cobbett.
For fans of Twin Atlantic, Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters, SFT look to create epic, fresh alt rock songs with their own signature sound that will make you wish you discovered them sooner!
They burst onto the Fife scene in 2019 with their debut single “Kings and Queens” followed by their second single “Rumours”. At the start of 2020 SFT signed with Reaction Management and released their third single “Criminal”, collaborating with singer Aveleen Rose. 2020 was used to write and record new material to be released in 2021, the first of which was “I Don’t Need You To Save Me”, “an exhilarating storm of music bursting through your speakers” – Nexus Music Blog. “Non Applicable (Na Na)”, “a high-octane, synthtastic track about the failed system we’re living in” (In The Bucket Playlist) was released on the 1st October.
Following on from the success of that track, “The One” was released on the 26th November. The Other Side Reviews states that “the combination of dynamic guitars, pounding drums and MacFarlane’s gruff vocals tips the listener into a sonic whirlpool filled with hazy ambiences”. February 2022 saw the first single of the year dropped by the band, “Prison Living”. “Unquestionably one of the best contemporary alternative rock tunes you’ll hear this year” – Thoughts Words Action.
In August 2022 SFT unleashed their latest alt rock/pop punk track “Lipstick Lips”. With a throwback to 90’s skater vibes plus ska style brass at the forefront, this track provides an element of nostalgia with a twist out of the ordinary all whilst keeping that signature SFT sound.
Stay For Tomorrow have performed at iconic Scottish venues such as King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Sneaky Pete’s and PJ Molloys supporting Massive Wagons as well as performing at 2022’s Bonfest. The band are looking to head out to rock the rest of the UK in the near future. Watch this space, Stay For Tomorrow.
