World is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

On Friday, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die are set to release their new album ‘Always Foreign’, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Harmlessness’.

So far, they’ve shared a couple of tracks from the LP, ‘Dillon And Her Son’ and ‘Marine Tigers’ (the latter of which was accompanied by a thought-provoking video) but before the record is officially released into the (beautiful) world, they’ve given one last taste of what’s coming up in the form of ‘Gram’.

As reported by Stereogum, the band’s Dave Bello said of the track: “‘Gram’ explores frustrations we’ve encountered with the U.S. pharmaceutical industry, lack of an accessible government-funded healthcare system, and the deep flaws associated with both elements. […] We believe marijuana helps people and should be a legal and safe choice for those who may benefit from its use, particularly CBD-related applications.

“Two of us are from WV, and most of us have lived in places where heroin and opiate addiction have been notoriously destructive to the communities and individuals we love […] The companies who make Oxy, Fentanyl, etc. do not care about human dignity. When economies crumble and safety nets are torn apart, the lower class suffers greatly. We wish only the best for those who have passed on in their attempts at self-care and offer our truest love to those who continue to struggle with the stigmas and side effects that come with the use of corporate and non-corporate pharmaceuticals”.

Connecticut emo/rock act The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die are streaming a music video for “Marine Tigers”. Watch it below.

The song tackles racism and xenophobia which is a topic close to vocalist Dave F. Bello’s heart. The track takes its name from the title of his fathers book “Marine Tigers”. He had this to say about the lyrical content:

“This song, its video, and my father’s new book all tell the story of being made to feel unwelcome, whether by a country, its people, its government, or all of the above. As we are flying back from our first, wonderful tour to Brazil, I could not be happier to release a song about my family’s history with the United States….We wrote this in opposition to Donald Trump and all xenophobes“

The band will be releasing their new album “Always Foreign” on September 29th via Epitaph.

World is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

Earlier in the month, Connecticut indie-rockers The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die (or TWIABP, just to save our fingers) will be releasing the follow-up to their last album ‘Harmlessness’.

Always Foreign’ is out on 29th September via Epitaph, and vocalist David F Bello said at the time of its announcement that: “When we started writing we were fresh off Trump being elected, so there’s an anger to the album that’s different from what we’ve done in the past. There’s a lot more resistance thinking throughout the songs – not in a way that’s strictly anti-Trump, but also addressing things like white supremacy and controlling elements of the state”.

At the time, they shared the track ‘Dillon And Her Son’, and now they’ve unveiled new, seven-minute track ‘Marine Tigers’, named after a book by David’s father José Bello that tells the story of an emigrant from Puerto Rico to New York who feels oppressed and alienated. Its accompanying video, directed by Ryan Sheehy, tells a similar story of oppression, except it’s one that’s probably caused by the fact that he has a third arm growing out of his back. It’s ended by a reminder to judge people as individuals and not by their skin colour from Bello’s father.
