Canadian punk rock band Like Pacific have released the video for their newest single, “Self Defeated”. The song is featured on their sophomore album, In Spite of Me, out this Friday on Pure Noise Records.
Since their beginning, Like Pacific’s vocalist Jordan Black, who identifies as queer, has become a prominent voice for the LGBTQ community in the pop-punk scene and beyond, and promotes activism and equality through his music and actions.
“In a very straight dominated scene, it’s unbelievably cool to have a voice and be able to put my thoughts out there in the world. Like Pacific has some of the most accepting fans and amazing queer fan base.” – Jordan Black
Like Pacific lets loose in the music video for their latest single “Self Defeated” and the result is both hilarious and endearing. Commenting on the video shoot, Black says, “filming for this video was actually wild. We changed our minds last minute and decided to try and make it goofy. We’ve always been so serious so we decided why not. Even though the song isn’t on the goofy side, it’s a pop banger. So I figured why not have some damn fun.”
