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.
