Wormholedeath’s Publishing Artist Worhol have recently released their full length, entitled The Awakening (Imminence Records), and are now excited to announce their first tour in support of it. The quartet, which features the father daughter team of Ashley and Larry Worhol who are descendants of Andy Warhol, will be hitting the road this October with Xandria , Worhol , and September Mourning . The band will be on the tour from October 12th through the 21st, and will announce further touring plans later this year. ”The Awakening” is available for purchase at this location.
Here is the Stament of the Frontwomen Ashley Worhol about the tour with Xandria:
”There’s nothing greater then to have the opportunity to tour with the talented musicians in Xandria, Kobra And The Lotus, and September Mourning. We are grateful for the team behind this, especially Artery Global and that we are able to follow our dreams which we have strived so hard to achieve..”
Worhol was fully formed in 2013 when lead singer Ashley Worhol and her father Larry Worhol decided they wanted to follow their dream together as a team. Both having degrees in music, they knew they had the knowledge and experience it would take to compose the music they’re so passionate about. Larry being the guitarist as well as the orchestral composer, fit in perfectly with Ashley’s trained vocals. The father-daughter team started writing music close to ten years ago and knew they wanted to form a group and write original music to perform worldwide. With a classical background rooted in both Ashley and Larry, Worhol’s music can be best described as symphonic, theatrical and over the top. Ashley and Larry are kin to Andy Warhol and decided to keep the band name in the family. Once Worhol was set, they reached out and found the rest of the members of the band Craig Malinowski on bass and Marty Naul on drums.
Over the 2013 year, Worhol produced their first music video to ”The Darkness ” and started writing compositions for their first album. Worhol has participated in several music festivals as well as played in many named venues inside and outside of the Houston area. Several articles have been recently published both in the United States as well as in Europe. Houston Press announced in 2013 Worhol’s music video ”The Darkness” to be ranked #3 out of the Houston area.
Worhol has been fortunate enough to have worked on their album with people such as John LeCompt from Evanescence, Stephen Bogle from The Hunger, as well as Mark Andes from Heart. In 2014, Worhol really started to prove their name in the industry by opening up for Nationals Acts such as, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd, Surrender The Fall and Almost Kings as well as guest appearing on radio stations and being broadcasted live on Great Day Houston with a musical performance. Worhol has been published in Billboard Magazine, Revolver Magazine, Metal Onslaught Magazine, Fireworks Magazine and more.
Worhol worked hard in developing their name and presence which lead to attaining the attention of New York based Extreme Management Company Inc. and inking a deal in 2016. This put Worhol on a strong roster of bands including Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, Origin, Ring of Saturn, Threat Signal and more.
In 2016 Worhol also inked a deal with California based Imminence Records for the release of the bands debut album, ”The Awakening”, released worldwide on July 14th, 2017. Worhol also inked a publishing deal with WormHoleDeath and Warner Music giving the band a strong presence throughout the music industry.
