About Harmlessness by The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die

Connecticut-based atmospheric post-emo band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die have announced that their second full-length album, Harmlessness, will be released on September 25 via Epitaph.

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die titled their first release Formlessness and the word has seemingly become a thesis for the band ever since. Harmlessness is a new acme in striking melodies, poignant narratives, and confident, compelling songs out of the band's own complicated and imaginative aesthetic. TWIABP has made flexible, vivid art out of their refusal to be any one form. And as vocalist and guitar player Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak explains, "'Harmlessness' is a state to be achieved and an ethos that fits with the open spirit of being 'formless'.

TWIABP create their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet. They have released one full length album, Whenever, If Ever, in 2013 on Topshelf Records that was lauded "revolutionary" by Pitchfork. The band's lineup is ever-changing and currently consists of David Bello – vocals, Josh Cyr – bass, Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak – guitar & vocals, Steven Buttery – drums, Chris Teti – guitar & trumpet, Tyler Bussey - guitar, and Katie Shanholtzer-Dvorak - keyboards, vocals. The band will perform at this year's The Fest in Gainesville, Florida and are currently on tour with label mates Pianos Become the Teeth.
