Every music lover has that one good song or album that’s ruined by a shitty time or person. For Patty Walters of As It Is, one of rock’s best songs of the century has been tarnished by the stigma that it’s the only hit the band turned out.
The As It Is frontman also weighed in on whether or not any early 2000s Emo bands have been tainted for him being compared to them after the band’s stark aesthetic change for “The Great Depression.”
Guitarist Ben Langford-Biss also discussed the song that is now just too sad to listen to because of its use in a beloved TV show’s most heart stomping moments in this APTV Exclusive.
And in case you didn’t know, As It Is fans are the literal best. Earlier this year, As It Is fans actually bought a star for Patty Walters.
