Brooklyn indie-punks Worriers have announced a new covers EP, The Old Friends, due this Friday (3/5) for Bandcamp's next fundraiser. The EP is named after its lead single, a cover of Rancid's ...And Out Come The Wolves ska-punk classic "Old Friend," and it also features covers of Tom Petty, Mission of Burma, The New Pornographers, and Bleachers. The description reads:
Over the past year, Worriers was asked to participate in a number of benefit livestreams, comps, and other projects that wouldn't normally be possible for us to do when we were on tour all the time. Living in different cities during quarantine, we took these opportunities to keep making music together - from home. Over the past few years, various arrangements of Worriers have played cover sets of bands like Fleetwood Mac, Minor Threat, Green Day, and The Lemonheads, so covers have always been a fun extra-curricular activity for us. This collection brings together songs from some of our favorite and most influential bands.
