Wormburner has somehow been named Unsigned Band of the Week by High Times Magazine. Dude.
Many thanks to everyone who braved the snowstorm and came out to catch us opening for Camper van Beethoven at the Bowery Ballroom. It was our biggest audience to-date, and it was a great honor sharing the stage with one of our all-time favorite bands. Wow.
Here’s a great review of the show, where the Wormburner sound is affectionately (???) described as “narrative-art-house-loud-rock’s-hyperactive-cousin.”
CBS Radio’s WNEW.COM has posted yet another live-in-the-studio performance from Wormburner, this time featuring an acoustic version of a new song called Breaker Breaker. Click here to listen.
CBS Radio has taken a particular shine to our Christmas Single Bells of St. Ignatius. Last week the song was featured on “AM Nuggets” at WNEW.com. Then we were invited in for a live-in-the-studio acoustic performance and interview called “Spend Christmas with Wormburner”.

We’re getting radio airplay on 101.9 WRXP. Weekend jock Rich Russo has been spinning some cuts from our LP, and today he played our Christmas song Bells of St. Ignatius on the air. You know what that means, kids: Start flooding the station with calls requesting some Wormburner!
Many heartfelt thanks to everyone who piled in to The Mercury Lounge on Friday nite. The show sold out, and it was a joy to play for such an enthusiastic and festive crowd. This Christmas show is sure to be an annual event.
