As It Is — Patty Walters, Ronald Ish, and Alistair Testo — have dropped the video for another banger with “I Lie to Me.” It’s a super catchy, pop punk bop.
“‘I Lie to Me’ is about the days where you wake up and try, only to end up exactly where you started,” the band shares. “If you lie to you to get through, that’s okay — we do, too.”
In the spring, As It Is released the video for “IDGAF,” an anthem that invites plenty of singing along. The song also served as a unifying, emotional, and inspired battle cry for the past year and the times we’ve all been living in during the lockdown and pandemic.
As It Is continue to work on music for their upcoming fourth effort.
As It Is released their third studio album The Great Depression in 2018. The band delved into brave new territory conceptually and also took a sonic leap forward. The Great Depression, produced by MACHINE (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die), is a layered and technically accomplished record. As It Is also reimagined the entire album and released the songs as a series of four EPs in 2019.
“We started writing the next chapter of As It Is in 2019,” the band shares. “We had written a lot of cool songs but none of them were telling our story or communicating how we were actually feeling. When ‘IDGAF’ happened, it was the first thing that incapsulated the heartbreak, defeat, and disappointment we were feeling with ourselves and the world around us. When the pandemic happened and the world shut down, that’s when we really spiraled. We’re unwell and we have been. ‘IDGAF’ is all in the title. It’s for all of us and it’s yours now.”
