The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die have announced a new album: Illusory Walls comes to digital and streaming platforms on October 8th and on vinyl on December 3rd via Epitaph. “Invading the World of the Guilty as a Spirit of Vengeance” is the first offer on the LP and comes with a video directed by Adam Peditto with Wataru Nishida in the lead role.
