WE’RE IN THE STUDIO – STAY TUNED

We’ve been in the studio working on songs for our third LP. Stay tuned for news about the release of an advance-single and related tour dates.

With Gordon Gano of The Violent Femmes

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.

With The War on Drugs and Dean & Britta

On Saturday July 21st, Wormburner will play the Shine a Light Music Festival with The War on Drugs and Dean & Britta. The event takes place at Mulcahy’s Concert Hall in Wantagh, Long Island. Doors open at 7:00PM, and the Dean & Britta set will include songs from the Galaxie 500 and Luna catalogues (with special guest). It’s all a benefit for the The Tommy Brull Foundation., assisting persons with disabilities in the greater Nassau County area. Click here for tickets.

Encore Video from Mercury Lounge

We left it all on the stage last week at The Mercury Lounge. See for yourself by clicking here for some great video footage of the final two songs of our set. Thanks to everyone who came out to the show!

And if you’re looking for the best St. Patrick’s Day Party in New York City, members of Wormburner will join a star-studded lineup of musicians and guest vocalists this Saturday March 17th at The Bowery Ballroom. It’s an annual celebration of Irish music (think Pogues, Waterboys, Van Morrison, U2, Thin Lizzy etc) and it’s all being anchored by Booga Sugar. Doors open at 8:00PM. There’ll be a traditional Irish band at 9:00PM, and then the all-star medley starts at 10:00PM. It’s also a worthy benefit for the Thomas P. Cloherty Foundation. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. See you there.

Mercury Lounge – Thursday March 8th

Our first New York City concert appearance of 2012 is scheduled for Thursday March 8th at The Mercury Lounge . It’s an EARLY SHOW. We are pleased to share the stage with Little Embers , a match made in heaven that’s been a long time coming. Set times are for real. Little Embers hits the stage at 7:00PM SHARP, followed by Wormburner at 8:00PM. See you there!

2011 —> 2012

Many thanks for helping make 2011 our greatest year to-date. We toured the West Coast and enjoyed some unforgettable hospitality courtesy of our friends at of KEXP in Seattle. Back East, we played shows with The Walkmen, Deer Tick, School of Seven Bells and even Cracker. The year concluded with a huge outpouring at The Bowery Ballroom, where we enjoyed piloting several new songs for the hometown crowd. The New Year finds us back in the recording studio fine-tuning our new material. Keep checking back for updates on the recording process and upcoming shows.
