RYL: Your new self-titled album will be released at the end of January, what it does mean for you? Which was its main achievement in terms of lyrics?
LIKE PACIFIC: Our newest self-titled EP dropping is going to be huge for us. I can agree, that we all have worked so damn hard with the writing process. I keep the lyrics pretty gender neutrual because I feel that way, anyone can relate. I sat on lyrics for over a year.
RYL: Is there a common “theme” among the lyrics of your songs?
LIKE PACIFIC: Some would say there ia a common theme. Not really in any past Like Pacific tracks but, this album forsure. This EP is a concept EP.
RYL: Tell us everything about our favorite “Clarity”…
LIKE PACIFIC: Hahaha. Oh man. Where do I start. Basically, I spent 6+ months being interested in someone that didnt give a fuck about my feelings or well being.
Actually, he really didnt care about anyone but himself. Long story short, there was a physical altercation and I now hope he rots alone.
RYL: how do you, usually, write the lyrics of your songs?
LIKE PACIFIC: I have a notebook that my mom had recently bought me. I use to just store them in my phone. Not the best idea considering I stage dive a lot and tend to break them.
I come up with ideas and concepts and jot them down. They usually form together as we piece a song together.
RYL: Which is the best verse you ever wrote?
LIKE PACIFIC: Thats a hard one…uhhh… probably “As cryptic as it gets. No, I have no cure for lonliness”. Which is from the opening track of our new EP.
Which is fucking heavy for me. It has so much meaning.
RYL: what inspired the lyrics of “Suffering”, first single of the album?
LIKE PACIFIC: This song is about my Dad and his current battle with diabetes. It’s a deadly disease that overtime, eats away at the body. It’s tough watching him suffer through this.
RYL: If we give you one dollar to spend in purchasing a song, what would you buy?
LIKE PACIFIC: Blistered by Soul Erosion
RYL: are you planning a tour supporting the new EP?
LIKE PACIFIC: Yeah we’re doing some Canadian headline dates leading up to a run of dates with Brigades, and then we both meet up with Vanna and Heart To Heart for a quick run in New England. We’ve got some cool shit lineup after too, but I can’t really talk about it yet.
RYL: What scares you the most?
LIKE PACIFIC: Being alone. And maybe elevators haha
RYL: Do you remember the day you wrote “Eviction”?
LIKE PACIFIC: A bit of a blur at this point, but I was going through some shit in my life. It was a tough time. I guess the song kinda speaks for itself.
