After a huge 2018, As It Is are back with a brand-new video for The Fire, The Dark and the news that guitarist Ronnie Ish is joining the band as a permanent member.
The video features footage from the band’s recent coming of age UK headline tour (their biggest to date) and also serves as a special “welcome” to guitarist Ron Ish, who is now an official member of As It Is.
He shared “Collectively, the team is the strongest it’s ever been and we’re all excited for our future together. The amount of love and support from fans all over the world has been incredible thus far and finally being able to announce my permanency with As It Is and say it out loud feels good. Thanks for having me. Got love.”
The Fire, The Dark is the latest single from The Great Depression, released via Fearless Records last year. The album, produced by legendary producer MACHINE (Lamb Of God, Every Time I Die), is comfortably As It Is’ most layered and technically accomplished release to date.
Music videos for The Wounded World, The Stigma and The Reaper further prove the creative and storytelling power of the Brighton-based quartet.
