Afraid of Tomorrows is a deeper and darker foray into The Mysterines’ psyche than its predecessor and reflects the maturity and growth of the band: Lia Metcalfe (vocals and guitar), George Favager (bass), Callum Thompson (guitar) and Paul Crilly (drums). “Afraid of Tomorrows is a mirror where you find you’re nothing more than a formless being, one made from celestial constellations – of traumas, of the old and new, mistakes, addiction, fear and happiness, loneliness, but ultimately a desire for life and the fight to keep living. It’s a collage of what’s been lost and of love unbounded,” says Lia.

Kate Nash is a Brit Award-winning singer-songwriter, musician and actress known for her fearless approach to music and unapologetic storytelling. A platinum-selling artist with a career spanning over a decade, she has garnered critical acclaim for her chart-topping hits and electrifying live performances.
