AS IT IS release the third track from their forthcoming album ‘okay.’ – ‘No Way Out’
Brighton’s As It Is have today released the third track from their highly-anticipated forthcoming second album ‘okay.’, ‘No Way Out’.
‘No Way Out’ follows the album’s title track and ‘Pretty Little Distance’, and as vocalist Patty Walters states “is about the desperation and exhaustion from struggling, when your best intentions and attempts seemingly lead you nowhere. Musically, the song is fast, dark, and aggressive, so we wrote lyrics that would parallel and compliment those qualities. Overall, our lyrics on this record are more honest and vulnerable than ever, and this song’s bridge especially is a prime example of that.”

To celebrate the release, the band will be doing a Live Chat on their Facebook page tonight at 8pm GMT, with the track going on digital platforms from midnight.
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.
“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.”
The tracklisting for ‘okay.’ is:
1. Pretty Little Distance
3. Hey Rachel
4. Patchwork Love
5. Curtains Close
6. No Way Out
