It’s an alternate version of “Jersey Central Power and Light”, which has been a staple of Wormburner live shows in recent years.
What a year! 2013 was one of our greatest to-date. We got to play New York shows with some of our heroes including Violent Femmes, Old 97s , and Bill Janovitz (of Buffalo Tom). We toured the mid-Atlantic states and released a new 7-inch single featuring a guest appearance by Sean Eden of LUNA. And the year ended with a huge outpouring at a SOLD OUT Mercury Lounge.
We’re gonna hole up in the studio now and finish recording our third LP. The 2014 release-date is TBD. Many thanks to our friends and fans for all the support. Keep checking back for updates on the recording process and upcoming shows.
Next up is our annual Christmas show at Mercury Lounge, featuring a headlining set by Wormburner followed the original Yule Dogs closing out the night with a set of holiday sing-alongs. East River Bandits and of course Lifeguard Nights are on the bill as well. As always, special guests will abound! It all happens Thursday December 19th. Get your tickets in advance. This show will sell out.
On Thursday November 14th, we will open for Violent Femmes at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. This is the Femmes’ only area appearance, and it’s a make-up date for the Central Park show that was canceled in September due to rain and flooding. Tickets purchased for the Central Park show will be honored. You must present original tickets with valid ID.
We’ve got a new single out on Negative Fun Records. You can preview and order the A-side and the B-side right here. Each vinyl copy comes with a free download code. Or if vinyl isn’t your thing, you can purchase the songs a la carte in the iTunes Music Store.
Our recent Brooklyn show featured a guest appearance by guitarist Sean Eden of LUNA. Sean joined us onstage for a rippin’ live version of our new song “Parliaments on Sundays”. Click here for some great video footage. Sean Eden also played guitar on the recorded version of “Parliaments on Sundays”, available now in the iTunes Music Store.
Last week’s mid-Atlantic tour dates included an hourlong live-in-the-studio visit to the college radio station at Duke University. Video footage from session captured these acoustic versions of our new songs “Parliaments on Sundays” and “Today Might Be Our Day“.
Today we release our new 7-inch single! The record features two brand-new Wormburner songs with an A-side titled “Today Might Be Our Day”. The B-side exclusive (titled “Parliaments on Sundays”) boasts a guest-appearance by Luna’s inimitable Sean Eden on guitar. You can preview and order the record right here.
