History[edit][edit | edit source]

As It Is started when Patty Walters posted an ad trying to create a pop punk band. Andy replied to the ad, and they found their drummer, Patrick Foley and bassist Alistair Testo. [3]They played their first few tours during this time. They toured all over Europe. The band got a very big response from these tours and signed to Fearless Records in October 2014. They also began working on their debut full-length album in 2014 in Florida with producer, James Paul Wisner.

Their debut full-length, Never Happy, Ever After will be released on April 21, 2015 in the US and on the 20th in Europe by Fearless Records. The band has been announced to be on Vans Warped Tour 2015 all summer long, along with other acts such as Asking Alexandria, and Black Veil Brides. The two singles from the debut album are "Dial Tones", and "Concrete".
