AS IT IS RELEASE VIDEO FOR NO WAY OUT
UK HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR MARCH 2018
Toronto, ON – November 8, 2017 – Today, Brighton, UK's, As It Is, have released the video for No Way Out, taken from their latest album, Okay.
Speaking of the track, singer Patty Walters says, "No Way Out, was a drastic departure from the band we used to be; we were all unsure how fans would react to us embracing a much darker, more aggressive direction, but No Way Out has become a fan favourite and standout moment in our set every night. There’s this insanely fun and contagious energy in the room when we play this song, and we really wanted to channel and capture that for the video. Without giving too much away, I think it’s safe to assume there’s a bright future for the darker side of As It Is..."
The quartet also recently announced their biggest UK headline tour to date for March 2018. The six-date run will see the band ending on a high at London’s famous KOKO venue. Support comes from Like Pacific and Grayscale, with one more act to still to be announced.
Speaking of the tour, lead singer Patty Walters says, “These shows will land nearly two years after our last UK headline shows, and we truly can’t wait to show you the band we’ve become in that time. We’ll be playing both new and old songs, songs we’ve never played before, and possibly some particularly old songs we thought we’d never be playing again. These will be far and away our biggest, most ambitious headline shows to date, and we’re so excited and humbled to be playing these rooms next year. We hope you’re looking forward to the OKAY UK TOUR as much as we are!”
