Can't Swim Share New Song Congratulations, Christopher Hodge Ahead Of 'This Too Won't Pass'

Friday, 09 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Can't Swim have released a new track ahead of the release of their second LP.

Congratulations, Christopher Hodge was the last song written for 'This Too Won't Pass', which is out on November 16, and takes its title from the band's manager and longtime friend. Vocalist Chris LoPorto explained:

"[Christopher] and his wife are having a baby the same month our new record comes out and the title was a way to bless their new family together. We grew up playing music with each other and he is one of the main reasons Can’t Swim exists.

"We had all the demos done and ready to be recorded when he asked me to write one more song saying, 'You never know when creativity will strike.' A few days before entering the studio I sat down and wrote the whole song in a few hours and sent it to him. He’s always pushing me to work hard at this band and has believed in it since day one. It made all the sense in the world to name it in honor of him due to the fact he was the sole reason I wrote it."

The track follows previously shared singles My Queen and Sometimes You Meet The Right People At The Wrong Times. Can't Swim will hit the road in the US with Trophy Eyes, Seaway, Microwave and Hot Mulligan this autumn.

Photo: Randall Slavin Calling Rob Thomas the modern day embodiment of the American dream is, admittedly, overly saccharine, a little old fashioned and not necessarily congruent with the undercurrent of emotional angst that’s always fuelled much of his music. Yet he’s certainly travelled a great distance to where he finds himself today, having risen from an extremely dysfunctional background to earn a reputation as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.
