The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die Return With New Track, “Katamari Duquette”

twiabp 2016 the world is a beautiful place and i am lo longer afraid to die

Seems like just yesterday we were calling The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die‘s 2015 LP, Harmlessness, one of the best of the year. While we’re still singing that tune, the musical collective has already dropped a new track from their upcoming 7-inch, Long Live Happy Birthday, that leads us to believe that the band could pull back-to-back album of the year contenders. Check out “Katamari Duquette” below via NPR.

Presumably named after the odd Katamari Damacy video game series and Topshelf Records founder Kevin Duquette, vocalist David F. Bello says that the new song is about “getting lost in a darkened city and abandoning the warped memories of home and childhood in order to accept that all institutions are corrupt.”

Long Live Happy Birthday is now up for pre-order in a variety of formats via Topshelf Records.
