As It Is will tentatively release its new album this winter.

The band made the announcement Nov. 11 in a press release distributed to the media. The document states the band is scheduled to release its new album, I Went To Hell and Back Feb. 4 through Fearless Records.

In anticipation of the record’s release, the band premiered the album’s latest single, ‘I Miss 2003,’ and its companion video Nov. 11. Both are available to stream here. The song is the album’s fifth single behind ‘I Can’t Take It,’ ‘ILY, How Are You,’ ‘I Lie To Me,’ and ‘IDGAF.’

The song’s musical arrangement is a familiar emo pop style composition that shows influence from the band’s fellow Fearless Records label mates, Set It Off, while also showing similarity to other related acts.

The lyrical them the featured in the band’s new single is allegedly a tribute to the bands that were influential to the band, according to comments from the band.

Thematically, there was little left unsaid on the album, which is always a liberating feeling because no risk is off limits anymore,” the band said in a prepared statement about the song’s lyrical theme. “Why not write a love song about the bands that sparked a fire inside you? Why not decorate all the lyrics with band names and song titles? It was a joy to write, and in its own weird way, it felt like we were writing this in the 2000s.”

The statement continued, “So if you were there, we hope this song takes you back, and if you missed out, we hope this song makes you feel like you lived through it all with us.”

In other news, As It Is is scheduled to launch a new tour in support of its album Jan. 13 in Los Angeles, CA. The tour is scheduled to run through June 8 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Tickets are available here.
