“Imaginary Life proceeds from a place of everyday precarity, where health and happiness are hardly a given and pursuing a dream can feel like jousting with fate.”
“Yes All Cops” is a protest song designed to combat complacency”
“[They / Them / Theirs] just might be the catchiest anthem about sticking it to the gender binary since Garbage’s “Androgyny”.’
“ …a pop-punk manifesto, serving up eight thrilling tracks that blend ragged hooks with political lyrics.”
“pure pop-punk catharsis”
“Denitzio captures the gray space between desire and revulsion, and finds power there between the poles.”
– Consequence of Sound
Shared a week ago via NPR First Listen, political punk act Worriers release their highly anticipated debut album Imaginary Life today via Don Giovanni Records. Produced byLaura Jane Grance 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.
Imaginary Life solidifies Worriers’ formidable voice, resonating stronger than ever in both sound and message. Offering a playful take on the politically charged album track, “Most Space,” the video features the band & friends’ hijinks on the NYC subways. The “Most Space” video premiered with Rookie this week.
Fans can also hear Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! + Imaginary Life producer in conversation with Worriers’ Lauren Denitizio at NPR Music where they touch upon gender in music, art, collaboration and more.
In support of the new record, Worriers are set for a national tour kicking off tonight with an album release show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory. On this stint of dates, the band will share select stages with Adult Mom, Fleabite, Chumped, Thin Lips, Cayetana and Sheer Mag.
