smart and purposefully political. Stereogum

Worriers will release their highly anticipated debut full-length effort Imaginary Life,August 7 via Don Giovanni Records. Produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and recorded & mixed by Marc Jacob Hudson (Saves The Day, Against Me!), the new record reinforces the powerful punk prowess that fans have come to expect from Lauren Denitzio. Imaginary Life is a collection of fast and infectious guitars, anthemic lyrics, and unyielding vocals.

While Imaginary Life doesn’t stray too far from past Worriers’ releases, it resonates stronger than ever in both sound and message. In the resolute political ballad ”They / Them / Theirs” we are questioned regarding notions of the gender binary and the frustrations that come with it. Arguably the most alluring track of the collection, “Plans” bursts open into an uplifting call to arms. Driven by percussive guitar and biting formidable lyrics “Yes All Cops” emphasizes the fact that white silence = white violence, especially in the wake of recent murders by the police.

They / Them / Theirs premiered with SPIN

Their approach to expressing politics in music is the feminist line “the personal is political”, using experiences to reflect on more universal political issues. On Imaginary Life, Worriers is Lauren Denitzio accompanied by Rachel Rubino (Bridge and Tunnel) and John McLean (Dead Dog, Todd Killingz) on lead guitars, Audrey Zee Whitesides (Mal Blum) on bass, Mike Yannich (The Ergs) on drums, and Lou Hanman (Caves) on backing vocals. Be sure to catch the band live on their national tour, which kicks off May 28th at Silent Barn in NYC.
