Harmlessness is huge in scale—a marvel in modern songwriting. The band’s massive sound reaches its full potential on many of these tracks, including the still-impressive single “January 10th, 2014” as well as the vivid and dynamic closer, “Mount Hum.” Put honestly, Harmlessness makes Whenever, If Ever look like child’s play. It’s that good. This record is sure to be a big name on UTG staffers’ end of …

65daysofstatic, Caspian, And TWIABP To Tour This November

The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have hopped on quite a few tours lately – Finch, Brand New, and The Front Bottoms come to mind. Now they’ll hop on Caspian’s first band without their recently deceased bassist, both supporting UK headliners 65daysofstatic.

For some reason, TWIABP will not be on the Canadian dates (which is odd, since they were on the Canadian dates of the Front Bottoms tour, so it’s obviously not a passport reason). To check out the tour dates, stick around after the jump.
