AS IT IS Announce ‘The Great Depression Tour’
Brighton’s four-piece As It Is are set to head out on headline UK tour in November & December.
Following their headline performances on the Signature Brew stage at the Slam Dunk Festivals over the weekend, As It Is have announced they’ll be back on the road later this year.
Speaking of the tour, guitarist Benjamin Langford-Biss says:
Since the incredible response to The Wounded World we are unbelievably excited to play a ton of new songs in the big rooms that they deserve to be played in. Hearing people connect to the themes of the single and the record makes us so eager to hear rooms of a couple of thousand people screaming the words back. We can’t wait to see that human connection and bring people together in a positive way, even just for one night. These are the biggest headline shows we’ve ever done and you best believe we’re going to make them very, very special.
Support on all shows comes from Trash Boat, Holding Absence and Courage My Love.
Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday June 1st.

The band is also set to release their third album, The Great Depression, on August 10th via Fearless Records.
Vocalist Patty Walters says:
‘The Great Depression’ is about the societal romanticisation of depression, the disrepair of present-day human connection, told through the story of a man who finds himself face-to-face with Death. This album is about asking questions rather than offering answers, exploring the lines where consolation and glorification collide, and asking if art is too subjective to offer a universal solution.
