Just a few days before hitting the road with Senses Fail, Counterparts and Movements, Toronto pop-punk outfit Like Pacific have just dropped a beautiful tribute to frontman Jordan Black’s late grandmother.
Coming via their brand new music video for “22A,” which comes from the band’s debut LP Distance Like You Asked, the new visual tackles the pain Black felt while writing and recording the emotional track.
“While recording [Distance Like You Asked], I finished up a session for the night and headed out with some friends,” Black explains. “I received a phone call around midnight from my father. He had told me that my grandmother, who I had lived with for the last five years, had passed away.
"This prolonged the recording process by a few weeks. I was very distraught and carried a lot of blame for not being there for her. I decided to scratch the lyrics to one of the last songs we were recording and re-wrote them—something I never wanted to do, but, now, I feel much better about going through with it. As much as I hate the fact that I had to write this song, I kept it very personal, but open for people to connect with on different levels, whether it’s a friend or a family member,” Black says. “I hope the video does justice, to show how I feel everyday.”
