6131 Records just announced that they have signed Lauren Denitzio‘s powerful melodic punk band Worriers. The label re-released Worriers’ most recent album, Survival Pop, digitally today.
Originally released in 2017 on Side One Dummy and now out-of-print, the highly praised record will again be available, this time as an expanded edition, featuring additional songs: the previously unreleased “The Saddest Little Waffle House in Eastern Pennsylvania” and a newly mixed/mastered version of “No More Bad News” which previously appeared on a split with Kevin Devine earlier this year.
Listen below to Survival Pop (Extended Version).
Lauren Denitzio of Worriers had this to say about new song “The Saddest Little Waffle House in Eastern Pennsylvania: “I wrote this song when I was on a solo tour, spending a lot of time alone in my car that was literally on its last legs, and I was really grasping at straws to find the bright side of my surroundings. We always go to Waffle House on tour but it’s a much different experience when you’re there by yourself with your own thoughts and you’re the one that stands out.”
6131 Records owner Joey Cahill had this to say about today’s announcement: “Having been longtime fans of Worriers and Lauren Denitzio’s music, and especially loving the musical progression they exhibited on Survival Pop, we jumped at the chance to re-release this phenomenal album. Worriers being a part of the 6131 Records family feels like such an honor and we’re excited to see what the future holds as well.”
Worriers’ debut full-length Imaginary Life was produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and was released on Don Giovanni Records in 2015.
Worriers are on tour in the UK and Europe with Anti-Flag, Silverstein, and Cancer Bats now. A full list of dates can be found below.
