Stream The Debut Album From As It Is
Do you dig the infectious melodies of All Time Low, but love the emo-tion Real Friends are bringing to the modern pop-punk canon? Then say hello to your new favourite band. Hailing from Brighton via Minneapolis, As It Is deliver songwriting that’s as sharp as you’d expect for a Fearless act – and we’ve got an exclusive stream of their debut album, Never Happy, Ever After, ahead of its release this Friday through Fearless Records/UNFD.
“We spent nearly every day of five months writing the album,” recalls frontman Patty Walters, who co-founded the band with guitarist Ben Biss whilst ‘on the same pretentious music course at Uni’. “Musically, the album is largely inspired by the music we grew up with. Most of the first albums we bought are still to this day some of our favourites, which we spent a lot of time picking apart and discerning what made them special.”
You can pick up your album pre-orders and bundles from 24Hundred.net that include As It Is T-shirts, posters, stickers, notebooks, hats, vinyl, and other goodies, so you can be ahead of the curve and proudly rep the band’s gear when they make it out here for their first shows Down Under.

Never Happy, Ever After is out April 17 through Fearless Records/UNFD.
