World Be Free Stream New Album ‘The Anti-Circle’

The highly anticipated debut album from World Be Free is streaming today in its entirety on This album premiere precedes the album’s February 5th street date (Revelation) as well as the band’s West Coast & East Coast shows February 13th through 21st.

World Be Free boasts an impressive lineup of hardcore/punk pioneers and mainstays Scott Vogel (Terror, Buried Alive), Joe Garlipp (Envy), Andrew Kline (Strife), and Sammy Siegler (Judge/CIV/Rival Schools) and Arthur Smilios (Gorilla Biscuits, CIV).  The band’s intention was to make music that was more melodic and positive than what some were used to playing; music that wasn’t just about being the toughest or the angriest and where it was OK for guys and girls to sing along and smile. They worked on crafting a sound that leaned heavily on the inspiration of the classic hardcore and punk albums they all grew up on, while adding a modern twist that kept it new and fresh.

Shortly after forming in 2014, World Be Free hit the studio with the idea to capture some energy, keep the good mistakes, and commit to full takes as much as possible, like many of the older hardcore albums. Scott delivered the vocals later, working daily with Nick Jett (Terror) at his studio in Granada Hills, California. Once the album was complete, the stars aligned, and the band was able to secure a guest appearance from Walter Schreifels (Rival Schools, Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits) on the song “I’m Done.”

While these five members of World Be Free are still active in Terror, Gorilla Biscuits, Strife, Judge and others, World Be Free is very much a priority—including playing live in 2016 in support of their debut release The Anti- Circle:
