New Track: "Grand Canyon" (The Magnetic Fields Cover) - Worriers

On December 14, Living Statue Records will release You Can Sing Me Anything: A Tribute to 69 Love Song, with a plethora of artists covering The Magnetic Fields' classic album. Proceeds from the benefit compilation will be directed towards No More Dysphoria, a non-profit organization created with the goal of helping transgender individuals pay for major aspects of their transition. For their part, Worriers take on “Grand Canyon”. In lieu of the airy bounce of the original, there’s a reeled-in bareness to this version, which brings the emotive resonance to the forefront. Its forthright vulnerability is self-accepting, yet yearning for change.

New Track: "No More Bad News" - Worriers

“No More Bad News” is Worriers' contribution to Kevin Devine’s Devinyl Split series. There’s a perpetual bleakness that hovers in the universal ether, with the song matriculating as a form of resilience. Gathering steam, it sits in a comfortable, personal space, warding off the negativity, as best as Lauren Denitzio and company possibly can. Despite the bad times, one has to hold out hope for a better tomorrow. You can catch Worriers, with Tigers Jaw and Tiny Moving Parts, on June 8 and 9 at The Fillmore, opening for The Wonder Years.

Weekend Warrior, November 3 - 5

Tonight, Johnny Brenda’s will be hosting melodic punk outfit Worriers. Commemorating its freshly issued album, Survival Pop, which is now available via SideOneDummy, the band captures a reflective, rambunctious, magnetizing current. Developing transferable narratives whose loose, focused build reaches undeniably momentous ends, these songs strike a nerve as one plants oneself in the midst of the storylines, letting the plot play out.  Reevaluating flashbacks with future projections and the in-between (now), Lauren Denitzio and company push forward, producing a consistently adapting perspective that imparts an emotive recognition, reconciling with the causes of conflicts and embracing the points of positivity. Worriers will be supported this evening by the kindred spirit of Thin Lips and the harmonious, open-book powerpop of Katie Ellen. - Michael Colavita

New Track: "The Possibility" - Worriers

SideOneDummy Records will be releasing Survival Pop, the forthcoming album from Worriers, on September 29. Its latest single, “The Possibility,” enthusiastically proclaims an immediate desire to escape the limits of one’s hometown and the potential of a relationship from an unexpected source. It’s a flashback, photo-exuding confidence, while providing an emotional context. Worriers are set to take the stage on Friday, November 3 at Johnny Brenda’s, supported by Thin Lips and Katie Ellen.
