AS IT IS post video for new single, ‘Speak Soft’,
ahead of Lower Than Atlantis dates in December!
AS IT IS, currently on tour in the US on the Alternative Press tour alongside Mayday Parade,Real Friends and This Wild Life, have posted a video for their next single, ‘Speak Soft’, online ahead of their return home to support Lower Than Atlantis in December.
Speaking of the track, singer Patty Walters says, “Speak Soft is about always falling short for someone you love and seeing only the damage you’re causing. We loved the idea of Speak Soft being track one on the album, opening with raw acapella vocals and unapologetically honest lyrics. This is my favourite music video of ours, I love how Chris interpreted the song’s lyrics to create this tragic and beautiful story. It’s been a truly dizzying and overwhelming year for us; to think this album only came out six months ago truly blows me away. I’m so excited to write our next album and see where it takes us.”
Walters’ bandmate Ben Biss adds, “The performance was filmed in Australia and the narrative in cold, cold England. This is the first video we’ve done that’s a little more serious. We couldn’t be happier with the way this video and more importantly – this year turned out for us. We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for us and to see how much further we can take this band that started in a living room in Brighton.”
AS IT IS – ‘Speak Soft’
from ‘Never Happy, Ever After’, out now on Fearless Records.
2015 kicked off with the release of debut single, ‘Dial Tones’, ahead of debut album, ‘Never Happy, Ever After’, storming the UK’s Official Album Chart Top 40. That was followed by extensive worldwide touring – taking in a summer on the Vans Warped Tour, as well as appearances at the Slam Dunk and Reading & Leeds festivals along the way. It’s certainly been quite the twelve months for the Brighton quintet, with 2016’s plans suggesting they’re not slowing down anytime soon either.
