A week ahead of the April 21 release of AS IT IS debut full-length Never Happy, Ever After, As It Is has given fans a chance to listen to the album in its entirety. Fans can still pre-order the new album digitally through iTunes and physically through Merchnow, which each include instant downloads of “Dial Tones”, “Concrete”, and “Cheap Shots & Setbacks.” Listen to Never Happy, Ever After in its entirety HERE.  To coincide with the album stream, the transatlantic pop-rock outfit has premiered their music video for “Cheap Shots & Setbacks.” Filmed in Los Angeles, CA with director Dan Centrone, the video takes places in a robot dystopia where humans are outcasts. 

“Cheap Shots & Setbacks’ is in essence about being the outcast, the underdog, but instead of letting it bring you down, embracing it fully; not letting anyone else change the way you feel you should be,” explains guitarist and vocalist Ben Biss. “We can’t wait for everyone to finally hear this album, it feels like it’s been a long time in the works and we just hope it means as much to even one kid as it means to us. We just wanted to create something honest and true to ourselves and we hope people will relate to the depths of the minds of us kids who seem happy on the surface”

As It Is have just wrapped up a U.S. tour with Set It Off and are set to take the stage at UK’s Hit The Heck Festival on April 25th and 26th. The band will then co-headline a UK tour with This Wild Life, then charge into the summer on the Vans Warped Tour 2015. Full tour dates listed below.
