TWIABP @ NYU’s Strawberry Festival – 5/9/14

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die isn’t really a band with a clear frontman or a standout member. Several of the band’s many members take on vocal duties, and their whole sound is really a pretty communal thing. Now you can hear what one of the band’s singers, David Bello, sounds like on his own, as he’ll release a new solo EP, Tires, next week (5/20) via Man of 1000 Masks.

The new single, “Burn Up In A Car,” is an acoustic emo campfire song that should appeal to anyone who liked TWIABP’s softer moments like “Gig Life” or other acoustic emo singalongs like Brand New’s “Soco Amaretto Lime” — a band whose early stuff is hard not to think of when David sings “And I hope you burn up in that fucking car / And I hope when you crash you had your seatbelt on, now you can’t get out of it.” The song premieres in this post and can be listened to below.

Meanwhile, TWIABP just played NYU’s free, afternoon Strawberry Festival this past Friday (5/9) with Titus Andronicus. Pics of Titus are HERE, and pics of TWIABP are on Facebook and in this post.
