Many thanks to everyone who braved the snowstorm and came out to catch us opening for Camper van Beethoven at the Bowery Ballroom. It was our biggest audience to-date, and it was a great honor sharing the stage with one of our all-time favorite bands. Wow.
Here’s a great review of the show, where the Wormburner sound is affectionately (???) described as “narrative-art-house-loud-rock’s-hyperactive-cousin.”
CBS Radio’s WNEW.COM has posted yet another live-in-the-studio performance from Wormburner, this time featuring an acoustic version of a new song called Breaker Breaker. Click here to listen.
CBS Radio has taken a particular shine to our Christmas Single Bells of St. Ignatius. Last week the song was featured on “AM Nuggets” at WNEW.com. Then we were invited in for a live-in-the-studio acoustic performance and interview called “Spend Christmas with Wormburner”.

We’re getting radio airplay on 101.9 WRXP. Weekend jock Rich Russo has been spinning some cuts from our LP, and today he played our Christmas song Bells of St. Ignatius on the air. You know what that means, kids: Start flooding the station with calls requesting some Wormburner!
Many heartfelt thanks to everyone who piled in to The Mercury Lounge on Friday nite. The show sold out, and it was a joy to play for such an enthusiastic and festive crowd. This Christmas show is sure to be an annual event.
Our second annual New York City Christmas Show is confirmed for Friday December 12th at The Mercury Lounge. It’s a double-bill with The Knockout Drops, and Lifeguard Nights will kick off the festivities. Last year’s show culminated with surprise appearances by Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes, along with members of Radio 4, The Bogmen and more. Advance tickets are on sale now. Here’s the Ticketmaster Link.
We’re back in the studio working on new songs. Keep checking back for news about upcoming shows. Or join our mailing list if you want to hear from us directly.
If you’ve been keeping up with the band, you know that we’ve recently spent quite a bit of time recording in Hoboken, New Jersey. You might even say that Hoboken is our new home base. So we’ve decided to play our next show at Hoboken’s own Maxwell’s, one of the nation’s premier intimate rock clubs. The show is on Friday September 19th, and we’re sharing the bill with the ever-prolific Lifeguard Nights in celebration of their latest record release. How we’ve never played Maxwell’s is a mystery to us, and we’re really looking forward to it. The club is easily accessible va PATH train and NJ Transit. We hope you’ll join us there.
For the rest of the summer we’ll be locked up in the studio at Hoboken Recorders. We’ve got a lot of material written for the next album. Now it’s just a matter of shaping it into some cohesive recordings. We’ll get back to playing live in the Fall, at which point we’re sure to debut the new songs.
We’re playing on Wednesday July 16th at The Mercury Lounge. This is a music industry “Showcase Set” for us, so it’s an EARLY SHOW. We will hit at 7:30PM.
