The World Is… “Whenever, If Ever” LP Release Show
THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE & I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO DIE
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die are an atmospheric emo / indie rock band from Willimantic, CT. The band was formed in 2009 and has undergone several lineup changes since it’s inception. TWIABP’s now 8 piece lineup writes the songs collaboratively and often on-the-spot with vocal duties shared by 4 members. The band’s sound is easily compared to second wave post-emo indie rock bands of the late 90’s and early 2000’s and their atmospheric moments are often tagged as “post-rock.” The band creates their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet. ”The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die speak to a universal experience: of home, of suburbia, of community, of nostalgia for a time not so long ago after all.

It’s loudest are desperate cries washed in searing, reverby overdrive
