The Connecticut emo/post-rock group The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die have released a new single called “Body Without Organs.” All proceeds from sales of the song, which is available on Bandcamp now, will go to the ACLU. Read a statement about the track and listen to it below.
“While this track didn’t seem to fit on [the group’s second album, 2015’s Harmlessness], the feeling it evokes seems more appropriate to recent times,” the band said in a statement. “The artwork for the song depicts a modern-day Terracotta Army being torn down. It’s unsettling to see the voices of positive change in the community around you get drowned out within a world of dated and regressive ideals. In an effort to help make those voices of change heard, we’re permanently donating all the Bandcamp proceeds from this track to the non-profit and nonpartisan group the ACLU.”
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are also embarking on a short tour in early 2017, the dates of which are below:
Jan 26 – Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Jan 27 – Cambridge, MA @ Middle East Upstairs
Jan 28 – Philadelphia, PA @ PhilaMOCA
Jan 29 – Baltimore, MD @ Metro Gallery
