Connecticut post-rock collective THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE AND I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO DIE return to the UK for a headline tour next spring in support of their new album Always Foreign.
Renowned and revered for their wide-open cinematic soundscape, TWIABP have been crafting complex alt-rock gems since they released their debut EP Formlessness in 2010.
Their latest album sees the band continue to dazzle as they tackle racism, violence, politics and more personal divides with such beautifully delivered venom and vitriol. Orchestral swirls and choirs of children interweave the intricate musicianship.
To see them unfurl their complexities live is something else. Mesmerising. So we’re bloody chuffed to have them back in the UK next year for a full headline tour.
They’ll be playing:
March 5 – Asylum, Birmingham
March 6 – Brudenell Social Club Community Room, Leeds
March 7 – Rebellion Rock Bar, Manchester
March 8 – The Classic Grand, Glasgow
March 10 – Newcastle University Students’ Union
March 11 – Thekla, Bristol
March 12 – The Haunt, Brighton
March 13 – The Garage, London
The last time the band were in Leeds was back in 2014 when they played at the Cockpit for their first album, Whenever, If Ever, so make sure you go check them out at the new(ish) Community Room at the Brudenell.

UPDATE: Brighton-via-Leeds duo KAMIKAZE GIRLS have been asked to join The World Is… as main tour support. The pair – vocalist and guitarist Lucinda Livingstone and drummer Conor Dawson – released their debut album Seafoam last year and this tour kicks off a solid 2018 for them.
