As It Is tour with This Wild Life

Pop punks As It Is and This Wild Life will join forces for a UK tour in May, accompanied by Seaway and Boston Manor.

As It Is are on the road to promote debut album Never Happy Ever After. Vocalist Parry Walters says: “It felt only right to be touring the material for the first time in the UK, and to give back to the fans that have been with us from the very start.

“We’re excited to be co-headlining with This Wild Life, a band like us singing sad lyrics over catchy tunes. Basically, I have nothing but massive expectations for this tour!”

He adds: “This is the ultimate lineup for a massive singalong party, and I genuinely can’t wait to kick this thing off.”

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
