Trust Your Gut is about an unapologetic journey to find self acceptance and each track has their own distinctive sound. It’s also the first studio album that Worriers have put out in years. This album’s lineup contains Atom Willard, Franz Nicolay, Frank Piegaro, and Allegra Anka. The album was self-produced by Lauren Denitzio.
During a time of which people were feeling desperate for connections and leaning into relationships, Denitzio scrawled through a cathartic manifesto that denounced the things that no longer served them. However, this is not a recording of angst and scorekeeping; it’s about an honest witty journey to regain strength. In a manner, Denitzio was also beginning a new incredibly vital relationship: one with themself. On Trust Your Gut, Denitzio emerges from the ashes, not as a phoenix reborn per se, but rather fortified by their past to build a more resilient future.
For the better part of a decade, Worriers have used their brand as a punk-adjacent indie rock as a method of story-telling covering themes of heartbreak, gender expression, identity, and love. After a wake-up call from an open-heart surgery at 25 years old, Worriers became Denitzio’s main focus. The event shook them to the point they left a toxic creative partnership and starting a band that can evolve alongside them. The band’s name is a homonym, and when introducing someone new to the band, it’s important to specify “Worriers, as in to fret, not to fight.” However Worriers have done a lot of fighting on Trust Your Gut. Lest anyone thinks they’ve forgotten about the political-punk roots from their debut album, Imaginary Life. It wouldn’t be a Worriers record without references of dystopian robot security dogs, dancing on the grave of a fascist or a nod or two to the activist-themed novel, Stay and Fight.
It definitely shows on Trust Your Gut, when their 2019 move from the east coast to Los Angeles lead to collaborating Atom Willard as a fun exercise just to realize, they had started writing a new album together. With the sonic goals for the album, it led to Denitzio’s friend, Franz Nicolay after tweeting that they were trying to create in his style. Nicolay replied with “Send me demos!” As for Frank Piegaro, he returned to the lineup and was featured on 2020’s “You or Someone You Know.” As for Allegra Anka on bass.
