Brighton quartet, As It Is have announced the release of their new album, The Great Depression, out August 10th via Fearless Records. Their new single, "The Wounded World" can be heard now below. Pre-order options are available now here

Speaking of the track and the accompanying video, frontman Patty Walters says, "The Wounded World' is a commentary on the polarised and volatile modern reality, which we've allowed. The video depicts a not-so-distant dystopia, where present-day headlines and technologies are displayed in exhibits as the warning signs of an impending disaster. I feel that we as a society have embodied a destructive habit of talking without listening, surrounding ourselves with alternative facts and headlines, totally void of open-mindedness or empathy. Despite the labels and beliefs that all too often divide us, we are one people, and we're all to blame." 

AN INTRODUCTION TO 'THE GREAT DEPRESSION' FROM PATTY:

"The Great Depression' is about the societal romanticisation of depression, the disrepair of present-day human connection, told through the story of a man who finds himself face-to-face with Death. This album is about asking questions rather than offering answers, exploring the lines where consolation and glorification collide, and asking if art is too subjective to offer a universal solution. 

We've approached this subject with the tremendous respect and sensitivity it warrants. Mental health awareness and prioritisation has always been immensely important to us, and we want to use this platform for good and to challenge problematic behaviours and stigmas. More so than ever before, we'll be working alongside incredible non-profits, donating proceeds to worthy causes, and using our music in hopes of creating a positive change."
