The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die Bio

Connecticut-based band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die has a new album Harmlessness available now. It is the band's second album and first with Epitaph.

If Harmlessness marks a new milestone for the band, and its foremost artistic achievement, it’s also an album that spends time pondering the years that The World Is A Beautiful Place has spent finding its place. The title itself is a play on the band’s first release, a gesture inspired by the return of founding member Tyler Bussey. Yet Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak also sees “Harmlessness” as a state to be achieved, an ethos that fits with all the open spirit of being “formless”. In Shanholtzer-Dvorak’s words, the goal is “to exist in harmlessness, doing no harm to those around you.” It’s a fitting idea for an album this devoted to beauty and humanity, and the search to find one in the other.

The group create their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet. In their idealistic maximalist world, more of everything is better.
