As It Is Announce New Record, ‘I Went To Hell And Back’

As It Is have announced the details of their upcoming full-length album.

‘I Went To Hell And Back’ is set to be released on February 04 via Fearless Records.

Vocalist Patty Walters had this to say about it:

“As profoundly pessimistic as this record sounds on the surface, it isn’t all doom and gloom. Feelings like sadness and hopelessness will eat you alive if you let them. I hope this record is there for anybody feeling as lousy or as inadequate as I was. “

“I don’t relate to happy music – never have, never will. Sad music, it reminds you that you’re not alone. It isn’t going to fix things but sometimes it’s enough to know that other people understand”.

[I hope] ‘I WENT TO HELL AND BACK’ feels like “catching up with an old friend. We can talk about all the good and terrible things that have happened, and how we’ve grown from that. We’re not the same band and I’m sure our fans aren’t the same people they were last time we put out an album, but I hope they haven’t forgotten why we were friends in the first place.”

You can also listen to ‘I MISS 2003’ now, a homage to the music of yesterday and the profound effect it had on all of us.

The band explained the song’s themes:

“This was the last song written for the album, written and tracked in the last two days of recording. Thematically, there was little left unsaid on the album, which is always a liberating feeling because no risk is off-limits anymore. Why not write a love song about the bands that sparked a fire inside you? Why not decorate all the lyrics with band names and song titles? It was a true joy to write, and in its own weird way, it felt like we were writing this in the 2000s. So if you were there, we hope this song takes you back. And if you missed out, we hope this song makes you feel like you lived through it all with us.”
