”The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die speak to a universal experience: of home, of suburbia, of community, of nostalgia for a time not so long ago after all. Atmospheric and breathy, emotionally raw and heavy, The World Is’ reputation as one of today’s seminal “second-waver“ emo bands precedes them.
The World Is experience is a rich one. This is in part due to the varied history of the six people in the band, a Connecticut-bred lineup finalized as recently as 2011 despite their 2009 formation. Greg Horbal (also an agent with Hope This Helps Booking), Chris Teti (also an engineer at Connecticut’s Silver Bullet Studios) and Steven K. Buttery (also in the band Ferocious Fucking Teeth, runs a screenprinting operation of his own) were all formerly in a similarly significant Connecticut band, My Heart to Joy. Shanholtzer is a working visual artist, has operated a popular Connecticut house venue (The Handsome Woman) for years as well as contributed to bands like One Hundred Year Ocean, SOFX and I’m ok (as has bassist Josh Cyr). Thomas Diaz (vocals, keys) has also released solo work under the name Sinforiano Diaz.”
