Canadian Punk/Rockers Like Pacific out of Toronto debuted their brand new video for “Self Defeated” on the popular LGBTQ publication “Out Magazine”. The song is the band’s third single off of their second album which is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018. The new album titled In Spite Of Me will be released via Pure Noise Records, it features ten new songs showcasing some of the bands best lyrical writing to date. The album will also feature already released singles “Had It Coming,” “Sedatives” and “In Spite Of Me”.
Lead singer Jordan Black comments about the new video,
“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.”
Since their beginning, 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.

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
