As It Is Post Video For The Reaper Prior To UK Tour

Thursday, 01 November 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Prior to their UK tour, As It Is have released a video for The Reaper.

The track, which is lifted from their recent LP 'The Great Depression', is a dramatic mid-tempo rocker that features vocals from Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie. Discussing the video, which was directed by Zak Pinchin, guitarist Ben Langford-Biss said:

“The video shows each of us waking up trapped in rooms, each room representing one of the four stages of grief that the record is chaptered into: denial, anger, bargaining and acceptance.

“Each of us faces off with death in some respect, whether that be in a literal or metaphysical sense, and there is an external antagonist controlling the events in the rooms – forcing us to face our fears, our grief, or even ourselves.  We were super excited that Aaron Gillespie was able to be a part of the video, to play the part of this puppeteer/antagonist.”

As It Is will hit the road later this month for shows in Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London, with an acoustic set also planned in Kingston.
