“Congratulations, Christopher Hodge was the last song I wrote before going into the studio,” explains lead vocalist Chris LoPorto.” He is our manager and a longtime friend of mine. He and his wife are having a baby the same month our new record comes out and the title was a way to bless their new family together. We grew up playing music with each other and he is one of the main reasons Can’t Swim exists. We had all the demos done and ready to be recorded when he asked me to write one more song saying “you never know when creativity will strike”. A few days before entering the studio I sat down and wrote the whole song in a few hours and sent it to him. He’s always pushing me to work hard at this band and has believed in it since day one. It made all the sense in the world to name it
.Billboard.comCongratulations, Christopher Hodge” – a new song released from Can’t Swim was streamed exclusively on honor of him due to the fact he was the sole reason I wrote it.”
This Too Won’t Pass is a brutally honest album made by people for whom music means everything and want their music to mean the same to others. In the ten tracks that make up the album, Can’t Swim are able to articulate our struggles with the people, places and events that continue to shape our lives and scrape our hearts.
During the recording process, LoPorto found himself gravitating towards the meaning of the word ‘evil’; a catch-all word that summarized the malevolence he felt about a number of elements in his life, be it the events of a past he continues to be governed by, and the wrongdoing he’s observed in his immediate surroundings and society as a whole.
“Problems haunt you, infect you, and in time become a part of who you are,” LoPorto explains, “You might find ways to distract yourself or try and forget but every time you look in the mirror you’ll only see reminders of what you hate. Evil surrounds us and in time, becomes a part of who we are. Let this band be a reminder of that.”
The band previously released the song and music video for My Queen and sometimes you meet the right people at the wrong times .in
