Worriers

WORRIERS announce new album "Survival Pop" out September 29. New single "The Possibilityout today. Touring Australia in September for Weekender Fest and supporting Camp Cope.

There are plenty of songs about growing up, and probably even more about growing up in New Jersey. But on Worriers' new single The Possibility, out today, singer/guitarist Lauren Denitzio writes a response to the overly romanticized version of New Jersey that reflects their actual experience growing up queer in the Garden State. “This song is for teenage me, who needed a love song that wasn’t just about riding around town with your sweetheart down the shore.”

Like most of the songs off of Worriers forthcoming album Survival Pop, The Possibility is an act of self-preservation. “I wrote the majority of the songs on this record thinking about what kinds of songs past versions of myself would’ve needed or been listening to at different points in my life."

Denitzio composed the record after arriving on the other side of a difficult time. From enduring years of health issues that led to open heart surgery at the age of 25, to growing up queer, to losing friends to substance abuse and suicide, Denitzio is no stranger to life’s struggles. But make no mistake, while these experiences certainly influenced the creation of Survival Pop, the record is by no means self-pitying or sad. Instead it is a triumphant rallying cry, a celebration of overcoming, and a cathartic and empowering journey to self-actualization.

In addition to being an accomplished musician for over a decade, Lauren is also a gifted artist and writer, with an MFA in Fine Arts from Parsons and a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. The longtime Brooklyn resident, who recently migrated to Philadelphia, has shown at galleries throughout the United States and has done international residencies in Berlin and Reykjavik. Worriers and Lauren have received praise from numerous notable publications including NPR, Pitchfork, New York Times, Village Voice and MSNBC, and have toured with Against Me!, Julien Baker and John K. Samson among others.

Survival Pop is out September 29 on SideOneDummy Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia.
