Wormburner celebrates release of third LP at Mercury on 9.26

Wormburner celebrates release of third LP at Mercury on 9.26

NYC's Wormburner (a band that has shared the stage with the lines of Violent Femmes and The War on Drugs among others) doesn't simply play catchy rock'n'roll, they're also telling a story. Each song by the 5-piece rock outfit has its own narrative, which openly gay front-man Hank Henry explains as stemming from his ability to be someone he's not, from all the years he spent in the closet.  The band is set to release their third LP 'Pleasant Living in Planned Communities' on September 30th via Dive Records, and in support, they're playing an album release show on September 26th at Mercury Lounge in Manhattan.  Check out their song 'Today Might Be Our Day' from the album below.  - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
