Pop punk act As It Is have started the year strong with the release of their new music video for track 'The Fire, The Dark', featuring live footage from the band's recent headlining UK/EU tour. The single is the latest from their recent release, The Great Depression, released via Fearless Records/Caroline Australia last year.
The video also acts as a special 'welcome' to new permanent guitarist Ron Ish, whose official status in the band was announced this week. Speaking on the news, Ish shares “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.”
Vocalist Patty Walters muses “I suppose our two main goals were to restructure the way this scene depicts depression and to shatter stigmas surrounding mental health along the way. This album has completely changed us as people and the band we intend to be in the future.”
