Can't Swim have announced plans to release a new album, Fail You Again, on March 10th with Pure Noise Records. Today, the band has partnered with Clrvynt.com to premiere a video for their new track, “We Won’t Sleep.” Watch it now below.
Fans can pre-order the record now at http://smarturl.it/CantSwim.
“The video for “We Won't Sleep” shows a scenario that a lot of kids go through growing up. The boy character is interested in Ballet, an art form mostly dominated by women, and his struggle to be accepted by his over masculine father. The girl character wants to be a painter and follow the arts, which is also shunned by her business oriented mother. Something I too have personally dealt with, playing music has never been a lucrative endeavor and I have been told countless times to consider a “different path” in life. In the climax of the video, the parents have an epiphany realizing they should support their children which is the message I hope people take from this video.” - Chris LoPorto (vocals/guitar)
Can’t Swim will kick off their spring tour in support of Fail You Again later this month, which will include tour dates with Set Your Goals and Four Year Strong. Tour dates are listed below.
“Fail You Again is our first full length record as a band. I think it’s a good interpretation of what we want to accomplish with our music. We recorded it all ourselves so the process felt very close to home. I’d like to think the extra work we put in really shows on the songs and people can tell how important this was to us. We looked at it as a template of sound for future releases, so we we’re sure to explore a wide array of tones and vibes throughout. It’s an honor to make music with these guys and I can’t wait for people to hear what we made.” - Chris LoPorto (vocals/guitar)
News of the upcoming album also comes with the unexpected addition of a new member for Can’t Swim. In the making of the new record, the band switched around instruments and enlisted the services for the incredibly talented drummer Andrea Morgan, who rounds out the current lineup with LoPorto (vocals/guitar), Danny Rico (guitar), Greg McDevitt (bass) and Mike Sanchez (guitar).
“Once we finished our new record, we sat in a room and started to hash out the new songs live. We quickly realized we needed a third guitar player to do these songs justice. Danny (our former drummer) was so involved in the writing and recording of the guitar parts, it made a lot of sense to have him do it. A dear friend from back home was the first we thought of for the spot. We contacted her immediately and asked her if she wanted to jam. After the first 5 minutes of playing together, my mind was completely made up. We all want the same things out of this band and all want to accomplish the same goals with our music. Other than being a fantastic drummer, she’s a lovely human being and I couldn’t be more pleased to have Andrea on board.” - Chris LoPorto (vocals/guitar)
