'The Great Depression: Reimagined' is complete.
Surprise! As It Is have dropped their fourth, and final 'The Great Depression: Reimagined' EP!
In case you somehow missed it back in March, and every few months since, As It Is re-recorded and completely reimagined their 2018 album 'The Great Depression' and are released it in a series of four EPs.
Sharing the news on Twitter when they announced it initially, As It Is posted, "We are so incredibly excited to announce that we have reimagined the entirety of our album the great depression. today, we are releasing ‘denial: reimagined’, the first of 4 EP’s all to be released this year. streaming online now. in typical as it is fashion, this is not just an acoustic album... this is an elaborate and eclectic reinterpretation of our most ambitious and important record to date, produced by Patty Walters. the artwork for each EP will represent a respective quarter of a larger piece of art, complete when all four have been pieced together... we believe that reimagined songs can breathe new life and meaning into the lyrics, opening the door to find further truths within music. we hope that you enjoy this new, exciting, and immersive extension of the great depression."
'Acceptance' marks the fourth and final EP in the series, and features reimagined versions of 'The Haunting', 'The Hurt, The Hope' and 'The End.' as you've never heard them before.
'The Haunting' is already a pretty emotional song already, but As It Is have also shared on Twitter, "p.s - 'The Haunting' reimagined is Ben Langford-Biss' last ever recording for As It Is. He killed it, right?". EMOTIONAL.
As It Is announced the amicable departure of founding member and guitarist Ben Langford-Biss earlier this year, following their current run of headline tour dates across Europe and the UK.
