TWIABP at Toad's Place - 12/11/15
The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die wrapped up their US tour over the weekend with a release show in their home state of Connecticut for this year's excellent Harmlessness. The tour had already hit NYC for two shows, including MHOW with Foxing which we have pictures and review of here. Pictures of the Toad's Place show are in this post.
We were only able to catch TWIABP's set, but the CT show had very strong support from post-rockers Caspian and the metallic Old Wounds, plus additional openers The Island of Misfit Toys and Loner Chic. Caspian's next tour is a co-headlining run with Defeater in February (dates below). It doesn't hit NYC, but Defeater will be here with Basement, Turnstile and Colleen Green.
Old Wounds have two more shows in the NYC-area. One's a Long Island date with Boston metalcore band On Broken Wings on 12/28 at Amityville Music Hall (tix), and the other's with the back-in-action Brooklyn vets Candiria on February 20 at Maxwell's (tix).
