Info

On September 25th The World Is A Beautiful Place will be releasing Harmlessness, their second full-length and first for the legendary punk outlet Epitaph Records. The album is a breakthrough, a new acme for a band that has done brilliant work in crafting striking melodies, poignant narratives, and confident, compelling songs out of their own complicated and imaginative aesthetic.

If Harmlessness marks a new milestone for the band, and its foremost artistic achievement, it’s also an album that spends time pondering the years that The World Is A Beautiful Place has spent finding its place. The title itself is a play on the band’s first release, a gesture inspired by the return of founding member Tyler Bussey. Yet Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak also sees “Harmlessness” as a state to be achieved, an ethos that fits with all the open spirit of being “formless”. In Shanholtzer-Dvorak’s words, the goal is “to exist in harmlessness, doing no harm to those around you.” It’s a fitting idea for an album this devoted to beauty and humanity, and the search to find one in the other. - Chad Jewett, Half Cloth
