Willimantic, CT indie rockers The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die officially released their critically acclaimed new LP “Whenever, If Ever” today on Topshelf Records. The band is also premiering their new music video on Death + Taxes.

In talking with the magazine about the video, guitarist Greg Horbal explains, “Directed and edited by the brilliant Geoff Hoskinson, a sequence of nature scenes seems to possess unnatural and supernatural qualities. Intercut with stark minimal geometric scenes, this music video expresses a feeling of displacement and alternate realities / possibilities paired with a song about decaying rental property, LSD experiences, and the personification of a decades worth of punk show fliers.”

 

Check out the clip for “Picture of a Tree That Doesn’t Look Okay”

 

TWIAB are currently on a headline tour featuring support from Dads and Pity Sex. Daylight is performing on select dates. The tour launched June 13 in Richmond, VA and winds down on July 21 in New Haven, CT.

“Whenever, If Ever” was recorded with Ryan Stack (My Heart To Joy, Now, Now) at Format Audio in MA.
