The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die  
-from Philadelphia, PA
-The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are an atmospheric emo / indie rock band from Willimantic, CT. The band was formed in 2009 and has undergone several lineup changes since its inception. TWIABP’s now 8 piece lineup writes the songs collaboratively and often on-the-spot with vocal duties shared by 5 members. The band’s sound is easily compared to second wave post-emo indie rock bands of the late 90s and early 2000s and their atmospheric moments are often tagged as “post-rock.” The band creates their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, strings, and trumpet.

Bent Knee 
-from Boston, MA
-When you think of a band made up of musicians who met at a prestigious music school, a certain image may come to mind. A group of highly skilled artists, hunched over their respective instruments in utter concentration, spooling out complex notes and unorthodox time signatures, producing music of tremendous difficulty and seriousness.

In the case of Bent Knee, you can put your preconceived notions to rest. Yes, all six members of the Boston-based band met while studying at the Berklee College of Music. Yes, they’re all tremendously talented musicians. But while their music may contain a multitude of music theory complexity, it can also be accessible, funky, tender, vulnerable, head-banging, and heavy on guilty-pleasure pop/rock tropes. Bent Knee’s latest album, You Know What They Mean, weaves together everything that made their four previous albums equal parts jaw-dropping and, dare I say, fun. For a band so good at smashing boundaries, they’ve managed to find a few more to tear down this time around.

The album was written largely during 2018, a year that proved to be a trying one for the band. In June, drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth broke his ankle coming off the stage during a gig, resulting in the band temporarily replacing him for the rest of the tour. In November, the group’s tour van flipped over during an intense Wyoming blizzard (thankfully, no-one was seriously hurt). Despite these setbacks, and in addition to a grueling tour schedule, Bent Knee soldiered on defiantly and wrote You Know What They Mean in the studio from scratch (a first for the band).

State Faults 
-from Santa Rosa, CA
-State Faults (formerly known as Brother Bear) are an American post-hardcore band formed in Santa Rosa, California in 2010.[1] Noisey included their album "Resonate/Desperate" as one of the records that best captures the last decade of hardcore punk.[2] In 2019, they were listed at number 16 on Kerrang's 50 Best American Hardcore Bands Right Now list.
