The WORRIERS – ” The Old Friends EP “

Posted: September 22, 2021 in MUSIC

Worriers are a band from Brooklyn, New York, centered around the songwriting of Lauren Denitzio, with the help of friends Mikey Erg, Nick Psillas, and more. They released their 2nd LP Survival Pop w/ SideOneDummy Records and have toured with John K Samson, Against Me!, Julien Baker, Anti Flag, and more. Worriers’ debut album “Imaginary Life” was produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! .

Over the past year, Worriers was asked to participate in a number of benefit livestreams, comps, and other projects that wouldn’t normally be possible for us to do when we were on tour all the time. Living in different cities during quarantine, we took these opportunities to keep making music together – from home. Over the past few years, various arrangements of Worriers have played cover sets of bands like Fleetwood Mac, Minor Threat, Green Day, and The Lemonheads, so covers have always been a fun extra-curricular activity for us. This collection brings together songs from some of our favourite and most influential bands.  I love a peak behind a fave’s faves; in this case you get heartlandic rock-and-roll punk versions of Bleachers, Rancid, Tom Petty, New Pornographers and Mission of Burma (god, I really wanna see this one live someday).
