AS IT IS' New Song "The Wounded World" Shines A Light On Depression!
Pop punk band As It Is just dropped a fresh single "The Wounded World" and this time around, they've awakened their emo hearts from the early 2000s with their brand new look! This song will be part of their upcoming album called The Great Depression and according to the band, tackles depression - which became a serious issue nowadays.
"‘The Great Depression’ is about the societal romanticization 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.", the four-piece Brit band posted in promotion of the new single.
They also noted that they really value mental health awareness and treated the concept sensitively. "We’ve approached this subject with the tremendous respect and sensitivity it warrants. Mental health awareness and prioritization 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," they added.
The Great Depression, the third studio album from As It Is is coming out this August 10! Watch the offiical music video of its lead single "The Wounded World" below!
