Can't Swim This Too Won't Pass We're the carriers for the UK indies exclusive LP, solid gold coloured vinyl, /250. The regular LP is tri-colour gold / black / red. "Catchy and punchy emo/alt-rock at its absolute best. It's barely left my headphones since its November release - another cautionary tale against compiling your end-of-year lists too early!" - Max The hugely anticipated second full length album from the outstanding Can't Swim, following on from their 2017 debut Fail You Again. A unique blend of emo-punk that fluctuates between grungey rage and quiet, delicate moments, all with confessional lyrics throughout. If you're into the likes of Boston Manor, Citizen, Thrice or The Wonder Years, then give this a listen. “Problems haunt you, infect you, and in time become a part of who you are. 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.” Pure Noise CD | LP
Can't Swim Fail You Again The debut album from alternative punks Can't Swim, their music fluctuates between being full of aggression and energy to being quiet, reserved and fragile, with a continuous raw and grungy vibe throughout, gross-pop esque to an extent. This band is a must for fans of Frank Iero, Boston Manor, Pup and Brand New. “Fail You Again is our first full length record as a band. I think it’s a good interpretation of what we want to accomplish with our music. We recorded it all ourselves so the process felt very close to home. I’d like to think the extra work we put in really shows on the songs and people can tell how important this was to us. We looked at it as a template of sound for future releases, so we we’re sure to explore a wide array of tones and vibes throughout. It’s an honor to make music with these guys and I can’t wait for people to hear what we made.” – Chris LoPorto Pure Noise CD | LP

Can't Swim Foreign Language UK / EU exclusive 12" is on 'baby pink' coloured vinyl. A new EP from one of our favourite emo-punk outfits, Can't Swim. Following on from 2018's This Too Won't Pass (one of our top 10 albums of 2018) with another dose of high-octane, punk/hardcore crossover tunes. This EP features a great set of guests as well, we're super excited to hear it. “Foreign Language is a record that I felt necessary to put out,” explains Chris LoPorto. “These events in my life that I had never touched on in previous material, that I never had the right words for, finally made sense in the time we are living in now. To be able to write music honestly and to be transparent with our agenda, has always been the goal and ‘Foreign Language’ is the best interpretation of that yet. It is very easy to fall under criticism and do what you “think” you should do with your art – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – and while I too am a victim of these tropes and have hit roadblocks creativity because of the pressure, I can proudly say that this release came so naturally and organically, playing to our strengths but also letting the mistakes and mishaps have their place on the recordings” Pure Noise Records 12" | CD Out of Stock
