“Hell In A Handbasket” is a standout for fans of the Fail You Again album sound; blending the lulls and gentle melodies with crashing choruses ripe with intensity.  “Congratulations, Christopher Hodge” feels familiar to the elements in Fail You Again but the chorus holds new complex facets that will give listeners an idea of the evolution of the sound.

This Too Won’t Pass has something for fans from the original album Death Deserves a Name as well as new recruits looking for edgy and complex alternative rock. Can’t Swim begins touring in support of the album joined by, Trophy Eyes, Hot Mulligan, Seaway and Microwave, November 16th through December 18th.
