Tomorrow Night

Album: Balls Out (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song reflects the band's party lifestyle and also was inspired by the inability of a friend of the quartet to score with the ladies. Drummer Stix Zadinia explained to AntiMusic: "He was always trying to get laid. He wasn't very sexy and didn't have spandex or long hair so he relied on honing his verbal game with the ladies.

    One night, at an Iron Maiden concert in Los Angeles, we stumbled out into the parking lot only to bump into a pack of hot sluts. As they were scoping us out, they inquired as to what we were going to do for the rest of the night. With no plans set yet, and nowhere to go, our friend declared that he had no idea what was going on tonight but instead exclaimed, 'I know where a party is tomorrow night!' Thus began decades of ridicule and pure enjoyment at the expense of our friend."
  • It was guitarist Satchel who came up with the idea for the chorus, whilst the odd time signature in the pre chorus was influenced by Stix's "early exposure to Robert Fripp and Marillion."
