The True Story of the Bridgewater Astral League is the first album by The World/Inferno Friendship Society. It is referred to by the band as 'Inferno #4', as it is their fourth release.[2] It is a musical, telling the story of a gang of New Jersey youths who would steal cars by astral projection. This was performed several times in its entirety, once on a rooftop in Brooklyn with the actor playing Millicent, reputed to be suicidal, jumping off the roof at the end of the song about her character's suicide. Most present were unsure if she was going to wear the safety harness or not.[citation needed]
