Conceived and recorded on the industrial railyard fringes of Hoboken, New Jersey, Wormburner’s Placed by the Gideons features 10 hard-charging songs connected by one smoldering thread.

The opening track, The Interstate, is a bruising narrative that introduces two young and desperate characters on the run, seeking salvation on the road while struggling to make peace with a complicated past. Thus begins a fugitive odyssey through dead-end towns and into the great American west, where the two meet their ultimate fate.

Nailing its colours firmly to the Springsteen, Drive-By Trucker et al masts, take a listen to the blistering album opener and roll those car windows down!
