Video Premiere: Woolworthy – ‘Hand Grenade’

Chicago alt-rockers Woolworthy are sharing their new song and music video “Hand Grenade” from their upcoming album Electric Heartbreak. Electric Heartbreak will be released on Friday, November 17 through Boss Tuneage Records

Bassist Rick Uncapher says:

“I edited the video with clips from Woolworthy shows dating back to 1998. It was a trip down memory lane for sure. Hopefully it brings back a few memories for people attending, playing, booking, or working the shows. I had forgotten how fun those Double Door Halloween shows were. That was a fun era for the Chicago music scene.”

With the music video, Woolworthy have marked their return after their 21-year hiatus. The band will definitely resurge the passion of 90’s alt-rock music. The upcoming album, Electric Heartbreak will feature 11 tracks, recorded by Jeff Dean (Samiam, Braid) and mixed and mastered by Mike Hagler (Wilco, The Mekons, Waco Brothers).

Founding member and singer/guitarist, Rudy Gonzalez, shares his thoughts on the band’s return:

“Woolworthy is a unique animal. It’s had several lineup changes, but each member became a lifelong friend. Especially with me, Rick, Mark and Dave. And I think the brotherhood that we had in the band came through in the songs and in our shows … and because of that, I knew we were not done. I didn’t think it would be 18 years later, but that’s how things shake out sometimes. I wrote a bunch of songs during the 2020 pandemic lockdown, and I thought they sounded very ‘Woolworthy.’ I had a gut feeling to save them for the right time. 2023 became the right time.”

According to the press release:

The album release will be celebrated with a hometown performance at Chicago’s Montrose Saloon on November 22, 2023, promising an unforgettable night of music, old friends, and even a little ’90’s Chicago nostalgia.
