So far this year, the World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have released a 7″ by themselves and one with Sorority Noise on the back of last year’s instant-classic Harmlessness, and today they’ve shared a new track called “Body Without Organs,” with all proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union. Here’s what the band had to say about the song in a statement:
While this track didn’t seem to fit on Harmlessness, the feeling it evokes seems more appropriate to recent times. The artwork for the song [by Dylan Balliett] depicts a modern-day Terracotta Army being torn down. It’s unsettling to see the voices of positive change in the community around you get drowned out within a world of dated and regressive ideals. In an effort to help make those voices of change heard, we’re permanently donating all the Bandcamp proceeds from this track to the non-profit and nonpartisan group the ACLU.
