“These are by far the most personal and honest songs we’ve ever written,” vocalist Patty Walters explains. “We made a conscious effort to truly push ourselves musically and lyrically, to create something that didn’t feel entirely safe or calculated. We wrote songs about our families, our personal lives, and our struggles more vulnerably than ever before, hoping to encapsulate sincere moments in our lives. We feel a huge sense of pride having created this record, and we’re immensely excited to share it with the world. We love and cherish you all for supporting us and giving us this opportunity.”

okay. aims to bring a truly relatable and deeply personal story to the band’s audience — a conceptual world that puts listeners into the band’s shoes and conveys a common realisation that it’s “okay to not be okay.” Working with producer Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, All Time Low), As It Is use the record to trek through intimate experiences surrounding their personal lives and everyday battles that they hope will resonate with fans in a unique way, leaving them with lasting encouragement and inspiration.
As It Is our currently touring the UK with Against The Current until Oct. 2, before the band heads out to the U.S. with Sum 41 on the ‘Don’t Call It A Sum Back Tour’ on Oct. 5. The band will then kick off a string of headline dates in Australia on Jan. 31.
