As It Is Drop New Song, The Fire, The Dark
As It Is have unveiled the third single, The Fire, The Dark, from their forthcoming album The Great Depression.
“The Fire, The Dark is about self-destruction,” explains frontman Patty Walters. “Weighed down by his regrets and resentments, The Poet turns to habits of self-destruction as a coping mechanism, isolated and completely withdrawn from the world, neurotic and unstable, consequently jeopardising his relationship with his wife.
“This song in particular is one of the boldest musical departures from the As It Is many have come to know. It was a pleasure and a privilege writing this song alongside Larry Hibbitt of Hundred Reasons, a band whose sound directly influenced The Great Depression’s darker direction.”
The Great Depression is due out on August 10 via Fearless Records – pre-order it now at this link.
