I Am No Longer Afraid to Die
I am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced the forthcoming release of their third full-length, Always Foreign. Due out September 29 on Epitaph, Always Foreign follows the Connecticut-bred collectives acclaimed 2015 album Harmlessness. Produced by TWIABP guitarist Christopher Teti, Always Foreign confronts everything from the opioid epidemic to xenophobia to emotional abuse in relationships. Throughout the album, TWIABP match their sprawling arrangements and layered lyricism with a raw emotionality.When we started writing we were fresh off Trump being elected, so theres an anger to the album thats different from what weve done in the past, says TWIABP vocalist David F Bello. Theres a lot more resistance thinking throughout the songsnot in a way thats strictly anti-Trump, but also addressing things like white supremacy and controlling elements of the state.Along with Bello, Cyr, and Teti, the TWIABP lineup includes Tyler Bussey (guitar, banjo, synth, vocals), Dylan Balliett (guitar, vocals), Katie Dvorak (synth, vocals), and Steven K Buttery (percussion, vocals). Formed in Connecticut in 2009, TWIABP made their full-length debut with Whenever, If Ever (a 2013release hailed as revolutionary by Pitchfork) and later delivered Harmlessness (praised as bold and complex and dazzling by Noisey and grandiose and dramatic by NPR).
