Hank and Terry recently recorded a stripped-down, pandemic-style performance from separate locations in New York City. Check out our song “Somewhere in LA” which we contributed to benefit The Tommy Brull Foundation. This video was featured alongside similar stripped-down performances by members of Titus Andronicus, The Felice Brothers, Lucero, Dean & Britta, Reigning Sound, and Deer Tick.
We have broken our silence to release a brand-new single for these troubled times. Titled “Restless Nation”, click on Look At My Records to read the story behind this new track. There’s some nice coverage by Ghettoblaster as well. You can listen on streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music etc
We are so disappointed to report that our Brooklyn show opening for Wussy has been postponed. Please stay safe and follow guidelines for social distancing as we navigate this pandemic.
We are sorry to report that our Philadelphia show originally scheduled for Friday 3/13 as been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19 precautions. We appreciate the enthusiasm of all our Philly fans and friends, and we hope to re-schedule soon. Stay healthy!
We are excited to announce our first-ever show at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. Even more exciting is the news that we will open for Wussy, one of our absolute favorite bands. It all happens on Thursday March 26th. This show is in addition to our first-ever Philadelphia date which is also happening in March (see below). Help spread the word!
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who packed the house for our December show at Mercury Lounge. The New Year sees us marching steadily toward completion of our fourth LP, while continuing to test-drive new material on stage. On Friday March 13th, catch us in Philadelphia at Bourbon & Branch.
As the writing and recording process unfolds for our fourth LP, here’s a taste of our latest work in the studio. Our first new music release since 2016, “Alumni Magazines” is a brand-new single with lyrics that wrestle with grown-up themes of class distinction and privilege. But the instrumentation is “classic WB”, as chugging guitars meet vintage moog synthesizers in a burst of hook-laden powerpop. The gritty mix is courtesy of Phil Palazzolo. Download for free, and keep checking back for updates on live shows.
Filmmaker Chris Cassidy has produced a fantastic documentary about our friends Dennis & Lois, fixtures on the punk and indie rock scene since the mid-1970s. We are very proud of our band’s connection to this film and to these inspiring people, not to mention the fact that the film closes with our song “Two Kinds of People”. Looking forward to attending the world premier in NYC tonight! Read about it in Rolling Stone and keep checking here for other screenings.
As we continue workshopping new songs for our next LP, we will return to the stripped-down setting at our beloved 11th Street Bar in New York City. On Thursday October 18th, join us for an unhurried acoustic evening of Wormburner material both new and classic. Plus, you can expect plenty of cover songs and special guests in the mix. We start playing at around 8:30PM, and there’s no cover charge.
Our own Paul McDaniel is careening toward a birthday milestone, and we are playing a special June show to mark the occasion. On Saturday June 23rd, come celebrate the birthday of everyone’s favorite aging rocker at Otto’s Shrunken Head in the East Village. Paul will draw up the setlist for this one-of-a-kind show featuring the hottest tempos in the Wormburner catalog, plus a heaping helping of punk rock and hardcore cover songs from seminal acts like The Modern Lovers, The Undertones, Guided by Voices, Weezer and Agent Orange. Jolly Good are also on the bill.

Our third LP! This album’s cast of desperate characters includes a downed airman in WWII Europe, a 21st Century soldier returning home from battle, and a transient gay hustler whose youthful looks are weathering with age.
