The Color Fred Shares "Worst Part" (Breaking Pangea cover) For Upcoming EP!


Last fall, Fred Mascherino (formerly of Breaking Pangaea, Taking Back Sunday, Brody, and Terrible Things, and leader of The Color Fred) went on an acoustic tour performing songs from all of his various projects, and now he’s gearing up to release a new Color Fred EP, Re-Inventions, featuring re-imagined acoustic versions of songs from all five of those projects.

He released a new version of Brody’s 1994 song “Against Forgetting” in conjunction with the tour, and now a second track from the EP, “Worst Part,” the classic single from Breaking Pangaea‘s 2003 Phoenix EP.

According to Andrew Sacher at BrooklynVegan, "The new version keeps the charm of the original intact, and adds a freshness to it, and it sounds great acoustic."

Fred says, “Being in Breaking Pangaea was important to my growth as an artist. It was the first time I was really able to tour. From 2000-2003, we played with so many bands that became the big bands of that emo era. We were all close friends. Will Noon [Breaking Pangaea's drummer, and later a member of Straylight Run and fun.] and I wrote ‘Worst Part’ in 2002 for our EP on Equal Vision. It was such a special, exciting time for us.”

The song officially hits streaming today. Listen to it here or here.

The Color Fred also has two upcoming NJ shows: one at Williams Center in Rutherford on March 16 and one at Autodidact Beer in Morris Plains on March 22.
