With many bands in the sea of Portland Oregon’s music community, WORWS recognizes the importance of maintaining a sharp edge and unique sound. They draw influence from an eclectic array of classics as well as from their friends and family within the scene. Death, The Wipers, and Slayer reign over their record collections along side contemporaries such as Ceremony and Defeater. Formed in October 2015 as a side project, the band quickly became a full time gig and in less than a year their first effort Laylines surfaced. It is a melodic and brutal attack against the societal wrongs and ignorance towards drug abuse; an all out warfare on the gentrification of their city as well as an ode to the importance of community and loyalty. WORWS have waded their way through the oppression of the working class and are here to fight.
