The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die have announced a new album: Illusory Walls is coming to digital and streaming platforms on October 8 and vinyl on December 3 via Epitaph. “Invading the World of the Guilty as a Spirit of Vengeance” is the LP’s first offering and it arrives with an Adam Peditto–directed video starring Wataru Nishida.
