The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die Announce New Album

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced the forthcoming release of their third full-length, Always Foreign. Due out September 29 on Epitaph, Always Foreign follows the Connecticut-bred collective’s acclaimed 2015 album Harmlessness.

Also today, The Fader premieres “Dillon and Her Son,” the kinetic and shimmering lead single from Always Foreign. One of the album’s most blatantly upbeat tracks, “Dillon and Her Son” speaks out against “getting older and becoming the kind of person who resents younger people for having fun and doing something new,” according to TWIABP bassist/vocalist Joshua Cyr. The song features Aaron Weiss from mewithoutyou singing guest vocals.

Produced by TWIABP guitarist Christopher Teti, Always Foreign confronts everything from the opioid epidemic to xenophobia to emotional abuse in relationships. Throughout the album, TWIABP match their sprawling arrangements and layered lyricism with a raw emotionality.

“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,” says TWIABP vocalist David F Bello. “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.”
