As It Is have confirmed two headline dates for next month, which will act as warm-up shows ahead of their slots at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival weekend.
Frontman Patty Walters had this to say of the shows.
“Words won’t express how I feel about shows returning. I’ll try, but they simply won’t suffice. Truthfully and transparently, I’m too emotional to let myself feel it yet. I’ll cry, and I’ll laugh, and I’ll feel like myself for the first time in far too long. The fans of our scene have lost a piece of themselves this year. Yes, artists and crew as well, but we’re all fans before we are anything else, and I think we lost sight of that before our worlds were changed. We all struggle to separate this music and these shows from who we are. This scene is who we are, and for many, mosh pits and stages are the only places we belong, or at least feel at home. I’ve missed it, and I’ve missed you all. You are our family and our home, and we look forward to seeing you at the reunion.”
