The World At Large

The World At Large

 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

The World At Large’s style varies from melodic to driving and often is a mix of the two. Their songs focus on intricate guitar parts and vocal harmonization. They don’t simply reproduce what has already been done but combine the sounds of their influences to create a new listening experience.

Biography

It all started in southern New Jersey in the Lorussos basement. Dom and Tim both recently split from their respective bands and decided to collaborate on several musical ideas each was working on independently. After writing and recording demos of a few songs, Andy was brought in to lay down drum tracks on what became The World At Large EP. After Andy joined the band, the trio was still in need of a bass player. The band asked Alex, who played drums in several bands Tim also played with, to give bass a shot. He agreed and the band started playing shows and working on their second EP, Punchdrunk in Rome. In mid 2011, Alex left the band to pursue other musical opportunities. The World At Large continued for a few months without a bass player. After posting an ad on craigslist, the band auditioned only one of the ads responders. Dan was a perfect fit from the start and joined the band shortly after his first audition. The World At Large just finished their first full length LP, Grand Plans for Strange Things, released November 5th, 2013.

Lyrics

5 to 6

Written By: Dom Lorusso

All day long I see people
They're just trying to find peace of mind
My oh my

Everyday I see people
They're just trying to make their ends meet
They need to eat

Keep digging yourself a deeper hole
You care 'bout yourself but no one else
Has it been so long, I'm already gone
I hope it's a dream I wanna wake up

Everyday I see people
They're just trying to make their ends meet
We get to eat

All day long I see people
They're just trying to find peace of mind
My oh my

Keep digging yourself a deeper hole
You care 'bout yourself and no one else

All day long I see people
They're just trying to find peace of mind
My oh my

We're all waiting for something
We're all waiting for you to come around
Bring yourself down

Keep digging yourself a deeper hole
You care 'bout yourself and no one else
Has it been so long I'm already gone
I hope it's a dream I wanna wake

Somebody told me I would be somewhere else
