Los Angeles, CA-based project Worriers is helmed by singer/songwriter Lauren Denitzio and they have shared new track “Prepared to Forget” from their fourth album Warm Blanket, due out April 7, 2023 via Ernest Jenning Record Co.
The band has also revealed several new tour dates alongside a new touring lineup, which includes Atom Willard (drums), Dominic Angelella (bass), and Frank Piegaro (guitar). All dates feature support from Lizdelise.
Lauren Denitzio has always been the type of songwriter to say exactly what’s on their mind. Over the course of the past decade with their band Worriers, they’ve addressed “gender liberation, capitalist violence, and searing heartbreak”.
The band’s fourth full length record marks the first time that Denitzio accepted that the group they had been trying to treat as a band is actually a solo project. After a fast pace of touring and recording Denitzio found themselves in the summer of 2022 with a chance to finally write whatever they wanted.
Though they have always been DIY, with no proper training in audio recording, they recorded and mixed the entirety of Warm Blanket at home. Atom Willard (Against Me!, Social Distortion) contributed drums remotely, adding an orchestral element of weight and emphasis to the proceedings.
The result is a collection of songs that reflects Denitizio “unlearning the expectations of being in a band” and writing music “that’s more in line with my actual influences.”
