The worst

TheWorst is a three-piece rock band from Portland, Maine. Tapping into post-teen angst with threads of third-wave feminism, the shreddy power anthems that comprise the TheWorst's debut album are a jolt of brutal honesty and unadulterated emotion, fueled by a massive wall of distorted sound that throws back to Dinosaur Jr., L7, Mudhoney and even Nirvana. The band is led by front-woman and songwriter/lyricist Brooke Binion, and their sound is rounded out by drummer Benbazi, formerly of Boombazi and the LA recording artist Beatnik JR, and bassist Will Bradford, leader of the anti-genre indie rock pranksters SeepeopleS. The sound these two seasoned veterans create is powerful, engaging and decidedly different, something scarce in today's modern rock scene. 

For Jane Doe Embryo, theWorst's debut album, the band enlisted the help of producer Will Holland, best known for his work with the Pixies, Dead Can Dance, and Fall Out Boy. The album was recorded at the legendary Chillhouse Studios in Boston MA and received wide critical acclaim. (read a review here) In their short time as a band, TheWorst have shared the stage with The Svetlanas, Rough Francis, The Queers and Zex, have been featured at the Millennium Music Conference 2016, won Best New Artist (Portland Phoenix 2017) and have been touring Coast to Coast since 2016 Currently the band is back at Chillhouse Studios with Will Holland after the band took an almost year long hiatus in order for Brooke Binion to enter into recovery after a decades long battle with drugs, addiction and depression. The album is slated for a fall 2020 release date (RascalZRecordZ). 

The band has just released the first single, "Blacksheepish," available now on all streaming platforms.
