AS IT IS are at The Sugarmill on 11thMarch as part of their Intimate Depression Tour.

As It Is was started in spring 2012 by Minnesota-born Patty Walters, who posted an advertisement stating that he was looking for musicians to be in a pop punk band using the online service Join My Band. Andy Westhead and Patrick Foley replied to the advertisement and were accepted into the bandalong with Benjamin Langford-Biss who Walters knew from university. The band’s name comes from a lyric in a song by the American straight edge hardcore band Have Heart.

Walters began his own career by posting videos on his YouTube channel of songs he covered. After the band’s formation, instead of just a solo cover, the band as a whole worked on a cover of Fat Lip by Sum 41. As the band’s career started to gain more traction, he posted less often until he finally announced in the video titled “A New Chapter.” that he would go on an undetermined hiatus for the channel and would be focusing his efforts on As It Is.

They released their third record, “The Great Depression” on 10 August 2018, which included the singles “The Wounded World,” “The Stigma (Boys Don’t Cry),” and “The Reaper.”

At their show at the 02 Forum Kentish Town in London, the unofficial world record for the most crowd surfers during an hour-long set. Over 300 people crowd surfed during the band’s set, and over 600 crowd surfed across the sets of all four bands on the bill.

Tickets go on sale Fri 14th Dec at 10am via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic.
