AUDIO: Can’t Swim – God Awful

After initially premiering over on New Noise Magazine last week, New Jersery’s Can’t Swim have surprised all of their fans with a release of a brand new song, ‘God Awful’, their first offering of material since they dropped their debut ‘Fail You Again’ earlier this year.

‘God Awful’ was originally recorded during their sessions for ‘Fail You Again’, but the band decided that it didn’t make sense for it to appear on the final cut.

You can stream and watch the video to accompany ‘God Awful’ below.

Speaking about the song, vocalist/guitarist Chris LoPorto commented, “‘God Awful’ was recorded when we were doing the sessions for ‘Fail You Again’. For one reason or another we decided not to put it on the album. In the last few months, it’s kinda just lived in our emails being played once in a while on shuffle. As time went on, we started kicking ourselves for cutting it and missed playing it at practice. Luckily, the label felt the same way and wanted to release it. Lyrically, it touches on a topic I’ve never covered in any of our other songs so I’m looking forward to singing it every night now that it’s out. So, I guess the moral of the story is, sometimes picking your favorite songs for a record is like picking one of your children as a favorite. But, if one of my kids had a 3 over 4 polyrhythm bridge.”
