Led by the multifaceted artist, Lauren Denitzio comes the fairly new Brooklyn band, Worriers. Previously a member of The Measure [sa], Denitzio lays down the punk vocals and guitar for her new band Worriers. Based out of Brooklyn, the pop-punk band also features Rachel Rubino (Bridge and Tunnel) and John McLean (Dead Dog, Todd Killingz) on lead guitars, Audrey Zee Whitesides (Mal Blum) on bass, Mike Yannich (The Ergs) on drums, and Lou Hanman (Caves) on backing vocals.
Worriers are gearing up to release their debut full-length record, Imaginary Life, on August 7 via Don Giovanni Records. The new album is produced by none other than Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and recorded & mixed by Marc Jacob Hudson (Saves The Day, Against Me!). We’re expecting to hear something powerful and significant coming out of Worriers’ debut. According to a recent press release, Worriers’ approach to expressing politics in music is the feminist line “the personal is political”, using experiences to reflect on more universal political issues.
Below you can stream Worriers’ new song “Yes All Cops” off their forthcoming debut album Imaginary Life. Similar to many of Against Me!’s infectious tunes, “Yes All Cops” is a politically charged punk anthem that that is as catchy as it it relevant to issues plaguing our society today. With striking lyrics and driving guitars, “Yes All Cops” emphasizes the fact that white silence = white violence, especially in the wake of recent murders by the police.
To celebrate the release of their new album, Worriers are slated to play a special show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on August 7 with support from Adult Mom, Fleabite, and more. We’re crossing our fingers for some Los Angeles dates real soon! Stay tuned, LA.
