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. The first 100 pressings will be on limited-edition purple vinyl. 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.
Many thanks to North Carolina-based Negative Fun Records for making this happen. Our third full-length record is in the pipeline.

Last night at a sold-out Mercury Lounge, Wormburner was joined onstage by Gordon Gano of The Violent Femmes. We performed Gordon’s original Christmas song “Merry Christmas, Brother”. Here’s some great video footage. A concert-goer also captured video of Wormburner’s own original Christmas song The Bells of St. Ignatius. Thanks everyone for a fantastic 2012! We’ll have a new record out in 2013.
The date is set for our Annual Christmas Show! Join us at The Mercury Lounge on Thursday December 20th for a full Wormburner set followed by an all-star lineup of guests performing your favorite yuletide classics. As usual, Lifeguard Nights will open the show. And our friends in East River Bandits will celebrate their debut record release. Doors open at 7:00PM. Advance tickets are only $12.
