Can’t Swim debut new single, “God Awful”

Can't Swim

Can’t Swim has surprised fans today by dropping a brand new single titled “God Awful.” The release of “God Awful” follows the band’s debut album, Fail You Again, which was released earlier this year. The song also comes just a week before the band kicks off a fall North American tour with Have Mercy and labelmates Boston Manor. 

”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……..” – Chris LoPorto (vocals/guitar)
