Can’t Swim Recruit GCW Wrestlers For “Set The Room Ablaze” Music Video


Can’t Swim have premiered a music video for their new single “Set The Room Ablaze“. In addition to the song featuring a guest spot from Beartooth frontman, etc. Caleb Shomo, the accompanying music video boasts various stars from GCW.

Jesse Korman of The Number Twelve Looks Like You fame directed the video, while Can’t Swim vocalist Chris LoPorto had the following to say about it:

“The video for ‘Set The Room Ablaze‘ is 100% my favorite Can’t Swim video. The process was something I never thought we would be able to be a part of. Partnering up with GCW and seeing those guys give their all, blood, sweat, and tears, for a song of ours was something pretty special. Jesse Korman, who directed it, had such control and power over the acting, being ringside and seeing how he was able to create and manage the storyline was inspiring and very impressive. I think it perfectly complements the vibe of the song.”

LoPorto also spoke of the song itself:

“‘Set The Room Ablaze‘ is a song I’ve been trying to write for years. To step away from changing lyrics 100 times, covering my story with metaphors and tricky wordplay, this song is as honest as I can get as a songwriter. We basically wrote it remotely and then recorded it for this album. Recently, we were able to get into a room together and play it for the first time. The excitement and energy made me feel like we were a brand new band again, and I can’t wait to play it live live every night on tour.”

Can’t Swim‘s new album “Change Of Plans” will be released this Friday, October 22nd through Pure Noise Records. Will Putney (Every Time I Die, Body Count) produced, mixed and mastered that album.

The band will be out touring in support of the record this fall on Silverstein‘s 20th anniversary tour. The Plot In You will also appear on that run.
