The Skinny: This is your introduction to “This One’s For You,” the new track from alternative pop-punk collective Worth Taking. Stream the new song just above, the track comes from the band’s forthcoming LP, Hangman (cover artwork below).

Offering a sound that rings of influences from Blink-182 to Foo Fighters, Worth Taking blends the energy of punk rock with the essential pop staples of infectious hooks and squeaky-clean vocal harmonies. Set for an early 2016 release, Hangman visits each step in the 12 step program. As the album progresses, it aims to become more lyrically and musically uplifting, recognizing and giving hope to listeners who are facing troubled times.
