Well, not quite. As It Is have announced the release of their third studio album, titled ‘The Great Depression’.
Moving from the 50’s era style of ‘Okay’, the pop-punk group have now switched up their look to become much darker, bringing more conversation to the stigma of mental health.
‘we’ve approached this subject with the tremendous respect and sensitivity it warrants.’ Says As It Is frontman Patty Walters, ‘Mental health awareness and prioritisation has always been immensely important to us, and we want to use this platform for good and to challenge problematic behaviours and stigmas. More so than ever before, we’ll be working alongside incredible non-profits, donating proceeds to worthy causes, and using our music in hopes of creating a positive change.”
‘The Great Depression’ will drop on August 10th 2018 through Fearless Records and brings a slightly more unconventional approach to its tracklisting. Coming in four distinct sections, the album has 12 tracks all falling under a category.
Stage I: Denial
01. The Great Depression
02. The Wounded World
03. The Fire, The Dark
Stage II: Anger
