    Wormburner

    Pop

    Wormburner are narrative indie rock luminaries from Brooklyn via Hoboken. KEXP in Seattle calls Wormburner “anthemic indie rock with a punk rock kick”. Time Out New York cites “echoes of Springsteen, The Clash and The Pogues that ring out in succinct vignettes…twanging and swelling over vocalist Hank Henry’s forthright, reedy delivery”. According to The New Yorker, Hank “can sound like a cross between Michael Stipe and the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle”. The Deli calls Wormburner “lyrically charged rock with intriguing western movie tinges that will please fans of The Boss and The National.” In New York City, Wormburner regularly headlines beloved rock clubs like The Bowery Ballroom and The Mercury Lounge. Tour dates have landed Wormburner as far from home as the West Coast, where KEXP in Seattle has welcomed Wormburner with Song of the Day accolades and a live-in-the-studio performance. Wormburner has opened for Violent Femmes, Old 97s, The Walkmen, Deer Tick, The War on Drugs, Dean & Britta, School of Seven Bells, Tommy Keene, Bill Janovitz of Buffalo Tom, Cracker, and Camper van Beethoven (David Lowery produced Wormburner’s debut album). Legendary VJ Matt Pinfield recently hosted Wormburner vocalist Hank Henry for an in-depth interview on MTV’s 120 Minutes. With two acclaimed full-lengths under their belt, and a third LP in the pipeline, Wormburner has just released an exclusive 7″ single via North Carolina-based label Negative Fun. The B-side features a guest appearance by Sean Eden of Luna, whose signature guitar tone is as unmistakable as it is transcendent.

    Wormburner is baseball slang for a scorching ground ball.
