In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week Greg Horbal, guitarist/vocalist of The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die gives us the scoop on Willimantic, CT. Their debut album, Whenever, If Ever, is out now.


 

 
Our band is based out of Wilimantic CT, which is in the northeastern end of the state. Regardless of that, if you live in Connecticut and are into local independent music, you probably travel all over the state to go to shows. Our state lacks a central college town that has the ability to draw all the “freak” young people to one spot.
