Ahead of their appearance at Slam Dunk Festival this coming weekend, and following its initial premiere on Kerrang!, New Jersey’s Can’t Swim have now unveiled a brand new one-off track, ‘Even In Death’.
The song is taken from the recording sessions for their debut album, ‘Fail You Again’, and in discussing the song, frontman Chris LoPorto pitched in.
“‘Even In Death’ is a b-side off ‘Fail You Again’. It was the very last song we tracked in the studio. The song came from months of Mike (Sanchez, guitar) and I messing around with these riffs at sound check. Once I finally got a second to sit down and write the song, the riffs we had really did all the work and basically set the blueprint for how it would go. Danny (Rico, guitar) added a ton of atmospheric layers with feedback and reverb pedals – it’s almost another song under the song. Lyrically it, touches on the loss of a loved one and hoping to meet them at another time. In my opinion, it’s one of our more intricate, dark songs, and I am excited to share it with people.”
