“The video for ‘Set the Room Ablaze’ is 100% my favorite Can’t Swim video,” says LoPorto. “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.”
As for the song itself, LoPorto shares: “‘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.”
