As It Is share new single ahead of new album released on Friday

The Fire, The Dark is the latest of tracks off of the band’s newest record. 

Brighton pop-punk outfit As It Is have shared the third track from their forthcoming album The Great Depression set for release on 10 August via Fearless Records.

Frontman Patty Walters explains “The Fire, The Dark is about self-destruction. Weighed down by his regrets and resentments, The Poet turns to habits of self-destruction as a coping mechanism, isolated and completely withdrawn from the world, neurotic and unstable, consequently jeopardising his relationship with his wife.

This song in particular is one of the boldest musical departures from the As It Is many have come to know. It was a pleasure and a privilege writing this song alongside Larry Hibbitt of Hundred Reasons, a band whose sound directly influenced The Great Depression’s darker direction.”

Here are those As It Is live dates:
25 November – Thekla, Bristol
26 November – Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh
28 November – O2 Ritz, Manchester
29 November – O2 Institute, Birmingham
1 December – O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
