Today we are thrilled to announce that we’ve got The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die’s spectacular debut EP 7” Formlessness now available for pre-order here.
Released earlier this year and taking some not-so-obvious cues from the likes of trail blazers like Sunny Day Real Estate or American Football, Formlessness plays like every record we love — but never quite just ONE in particular — and that’s our favorite part about it. The band has grabbed hold of classic moments like the more spastic buildups on a Kickball record or even the quieter lulls of Slint’s Spiderland in an entirely fresh and down-right invigorating direction. With the release of Formlessness, TWIABP are quickly joining the ranks of their peers like Annabel and Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate).
We’re ecstatic to be offering this record on vinyl. The first twenty-five orders will receive a FREE 2 song cassette titled “Josh Is Dead” and one random pre order will receive a free test press of the record with their order.
The band will be hitting the road at the end of the month in support of the release with the following dates:
Dec 26, 2010 - Bethlehem, PA (US) @ Fountain Hill American Legion - Street Smart Cyclist Reunion w/ Street Smart Cyclist, Algernon Cadwallader & Slingshot Dakota
Dec 30, 2010 - New Haven, CT (US) @ The Cookie Jar w/ Castevet, Snowing & Stay Ahead of the Weather
Dec 31, 2010 - Philadelphia, PA (US) @ The Fire w/ Everyone Everywhere, Castevet & Stay Ahead of the Weather

Jan 3, 2011 - Kalamazoo, MI (US) @ The No Fun House w/ The Reptilian & Black Churches
Jan 5, 2011 - Columbus, OH (US) @ Monster House
We hope you're all as excited about this as we are!
Keep your heads up,
-Seth & Kev
