Worthwhile is a melodic hardcore band based out of San Francisco, CA. With the successful reception of the group's first two releases, Miracle Me and Not Fixed But Found, the band spent 2009-2011 gaining a strong hometown following and beyond. As the band gained its loyal fan base, listeners latched onto the heartfelt lyrics, high energy, and positive message the band put forth in their music and shows.
When Worthwhile decided it was time to start writing their third release, they realized the band had matured through some very tough, personal times and had developed newfound musical interests. A pop punk album could not properly portray the lyrics and feeling the band wanted to create. With a love for melodic hardcore, members drew inspiration from bands like Have Heart, Verse, and Touché Amoré as they set out on their new project.
After a long year of carefully writing new songs with their new sound, Worthwhile headed back to Panda Studios to record their new album Carry On Kid. Within three weeks of self releasing Carry On Kid, Invogue Records signed them, removed the album from the internet and is now re-releasing the record re-mixed and re-mastered by Jay Maas (Have Heart, Defeater, Polar Bear Club) and produced by Sam Pura (Touche Amore, Title Fight, Man Overboard).
