Review of Bowery Ballroom Show

Stoner-rock mainstay Relix Magazine wrote a review of our Record Release Show at Bowery Ballroom. Here ’tis…

…enter New York quintet Wormburner, playing the release show for Hoboken-recorded sophomore LP Placed by the Gideons. “Breaker Breaker” introduces Temptation Hank & Co. all dressed in black, and we’re talking punk-pop storytelling from the get go. Talk-singing like The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, ‘Burner’s lyrics are Jersey-dreamy: “And we’ll ride this lonesome highway ‘til it ends, you be the one that heaven sent me. We’ll kill the headlights just in case, I know a stretch of road so empty, Breaker Breaker what’s your twenty?” The Gaslight Anthem, anyone?

Bassist goes drummer, guitarist goes keyboardist, singer goes bassist etc. in a number of instrument swaps through a solid gig that eventually finds Wormburner at next-to-last “The Interstate,” a story of princess Sally that renders these guys at their finest.
