The Woodworks formed in 2011 with former guitar player/singer Jim Hayes from Last Duchess. The quartet started by playing folk music until 6 months into the band when Jim Hayes left the band to pursue other life goals. Shortly after that the band began to change their style of music to encompass more of a rock style. Their first release, Fregoli Delusions, was release in 2012, followed by their sophomore album, Safe Mode, in 2014. The band began to gain more high profile shows from then on and released Unhealthy Decisions in 2015.
For two years the band wrote and recorded their next album in which they released a single "The Doctor Says I'm Fine" off of 2017's Laser Mouth Explosions. An acoustic EP, Au Naturel, was released in 2017 and then a live album recorded at Last Exit Live, Working, was released in 2018. The band toured in June of 2019 and returned home to record their next project.
From there the band decided to do it's most ambitious project yet. The three song EP would feature three episodes in conjunction with each song. The project was called Glorious Episodes and it was released on May 20,2020. The EP was recorded in part at Stem recording studios and part at home.
