Can’t Swim Share Music Video for New Single, “Sometimes You Meet The Right People At The Wrong Times”



Can’t Swim have released the music video for their new single, “Sometimes You Meet The Right People At The Wrong Times“, taken from their highly anticipated sophomore album This Too Won’t Pass, which will be released on November 16 through Pure Noise Records.

‘Sometimes you meet the right people at the wrong times’ was written on the back of a photograph and given to me as a parting gift when breaking up with an ex-girlfriend,” lead vocalist and guitarist Chris LoPorto said. “It really put so much into perspective at the time and eventually found it’s way into the subject matter of this song. It packs a lot of power and exciting rhymes, making it one of my favorites on the record. I think if “Stranger” and “Your Clothes” had a baby, it would be this song.”

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.”
