Worriers stream Imaginary Life

Political pop-punk band, Worriers, reveal their debut album Imaginary Life, streaming exclusively with NPR First Listen now until release on August 7 via Don Giovanni Records. Produced by Laura Jane Grance of Against Me! and recorded/mixed by Marc Jacob Hudson (Saves The Day, Against Me!), the new record reinforces the powerful punk prowess that fans have come to expect.

Imaginary Life solidifies Worriers’ formidable voice, resonating stronger than ever in both sound and message. Driven by percussive guitar & biting lyrics, previous single  “Yes All Cops” emphasizes the fact that white silence = white violence, especially in the wake of recent murders by the police.

In support of the new record, Worriers are set for an album release show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on August 7 with support from Adult Mom, Fleabite, and more.  Tickets and more information on the show can be found here.

Canada’s post-hardcore band Sparrows will release a new EP titled Dragging Hell on August 28 via New Damage Records. Today, the band has partnered with to debut the record’s first new track, “References To The Dead.”

Stream “References To The Dead” Now At

“Dragging Hell has been a long time coming for us,” says vocalist/guitarist Dan Thomson. “And it’s almost a relief to have these songs coming out, in the best way possible. The time that surrounded the writing of these songs was one of the darkest times in my life, and it definitely comes out in the songs, both lyrically and musically.”

Hailing from the Canadian hotbed for rock music, Toronto, Sparrows have making a name for themselves across North America for the last five years. The band’s striking amalgam of intense, post-hardcore and ambient post-rock, combined with a refined ability to craft memorable songs that increasingly push the boundaries of their sound has helped them stand out amongst their colleagues. Having performed on countless stages over the years, including SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Ottawa Bluesfest, Sparrows has emerged as seasoned vets who become more intriguing with each release.

Fans can catch Sparrows on tour in North America in August! Follow the band at for more information.
