Formed in early 2012, British pop-punk band As It Is came together when American-born Patty Walters posted online that he was looking musicians. Andy Westhead and Patrick Foley accepted his invitation, bringing with them Walter's friend from uni, Benjamin Langford-Biss. After touring locally the band expanded to national and continental tours, building a up a large fan-base that helped them pull the interest of Fearless Records and become their first UK band. The following year As It Is made their official debut with 'Never Happy, Ever After', with their second album 'okay.' hitting the shelves two years later in January 2017.
