The second half of 2016 has been a busy one for the guys in As It Is. In September, the five-piece announced the impending release of their sophomore album and then a few weeks later, embarked on one of the year’s most anticipated tours (Sum 41’s “Don’t Call it a Sum-Back” tour). Now, with a little over a month left until the release of their sophomore record, the group is giving fans the change to hear another new song from Okay. On Thursday (Dec. 1), the United Kingdom-founded band released a third track from the album, “No Way Out.” Listen to the new track below.
“No Way Out” will join recent single “Pretty Little Distance” and title track, “Okay” on the upcoming sophomore effort. Okay. is set to hit stores on Jan. 20, 2017 through Fearless Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website. Those who pre-order the album will get instant downloads of both “Okay” and “Pretty Little Distance.” The complete track listing for the new album is available here.
Back in September, vocalist Patty Walters revealed that these new songs are some of the “most personal and honest song” the group has ever written. “These are by far the most personal and honest songs we’ve ever written,” the singer admits. “We made a conscious effort to truly push ourselves musically and lyrically, to create something that didn’t feel entirely safe or calculated. We wrote songs about our families, our personal lives, and our struggles more vulnerable than ever before, hoping to encapsulate sincere moments in our lives.”
Okay. is the follow-up to the group’s debut record, Never Happy, Ever After.
