Meet Patty Walters, a singer with a love for music trying to create a pop punk band. After Walters posted an ad, he found a drummer (Patrick Foley), bassist (Alistair Testo), lead guitarist (Andy Westhead), and rhythm guitarist (Benjamin Biss). With that, As It Is was formed. After getting signed to Fearless Records and being the first UK band to sign with FR, they released their debut album Never Happy Ever After on April 21st 2015. They are a very talented group that I’ve enjoyed listening to for a while!
Their hit singles: Concrete, Dial Tones, and Cheap Shots & Setbacks are songs you won’t be able to stop listening to! My personal favorite is Dial Tones which is the song that originally got me hooked to the band! With catchy choruses, “Am I all that you never wanted? Or has it been so long that you’ve forgotten? All we ever share are dial tones (dial tones)”, As It Is has created a name for themselves in the music industry with currently 52.9k followers on the band twitter alone.
Joining huge names such as Black Veil Brides and Pierce The Veil this summer on the Vans Warped Tour, I am certain 2015 might just be the best year yet for pop punk band As It Is. They’re a band you won’t ever regret listening to! Like me, you won’t be able to wait for them to release new music following the Vans Warped Tour!
