Worshipper Releases New Single “Lonesome Boredom Overdrive” On Bandcamp
All Sales Today Benefits Bands, Artists and Organizations in Support of Racial Justice and Change.
Tee Pee Records artists Worshipper have released a new single on Bandcamp. The new track is called “Lonesome Boredom Overdrive” and you can stream and download it HERE.
The band decided to release “Lonesome Boredom Overdrive” today because Bandcamp is waiving their share of sales to support artists impacted by Covid-19, including those donating their share to organizations in support of racial justice and change.
Vocalist/Guitarist John Brookhouse comments on the song, “Here’s a song that we recorded and mixed for our last record, Light in the Wire, but couldn’t quite fit on there for one reason or another. (Run time, mostly.) At a time when many of us are stuck at home, not able to do the things we usually do to entertain ourselves, this song has taken on new meaning. Initially, I came up with the lyrics when I was feeling particularly drained by the daily grind, but now, it seems pretty apropos to put this song out, considering the title and the current dynamic.
This song began with a riff that Al came up with and it may actually be one of our heaviest songs. When we play it live, my head feels like it’s going to collapse, so that’s probably a good sign that a song is fairly heavy. It also has a decidedly Alice in Chains vibe to it, which, let’s be honest for a few of us in the band, was a pretty seminal influence, but was more of a happy accident than anything. So, enjoy! I hope this helps tame your boredom for a moment or two.”
