Worriers was formed in 2008 as a side project with friends for all involved. Lauren Denitzio of the Measure [sa], Mike Hunchback of Hunchback/Weird Fantasy Band and Justin Sullivan of Ringers/Babies wrote some songs in Mike's livingroom, covered Sleater Kinney poorly, and played along to the band downstairs that was covering Mission of Burma. Possible alternate band names included Outrageous Sobbing, Horn Illusion, and The Pleasure. Worriers remains Lauren's primary band with friends Jonathan Johansen, Mikey Erg, Rachel Rubino, Tim Burke!, and Lou Hanman, among others. No Idea released the first 7", "Past Lives" in 2011. After Fest, Worriers will tour the UK/Europe for the first time this November.
