Like Pacific

Like Pacific is a Punk quintet hailing from Toronto, Canada. The band, which consists of Jordan Black (vocals), Chris Thaung (bass), Greg Hall (guitar), Luke Holmes (guitar) and Taylor Ewart (drums), has found itself making waves in the Pop Punk scene through their unique, energetic and upbeat but introspective form of Pop Punk. Their references to their beloved hometown streets with song titles like “Richmond”, “Chine Drive” and a scenic Toronto-based music video for “Distant’’ have made them one of Toronto’s staples in the scene.

After being featured on Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need to Know”, the band signed to Pure Noise Records in the winter of 2014. The band released their debut full-length “Distant Like You Asked” 2 years later. The record was tracked at Room 21 Sound with the scene-renowned producer Sam Guaiana. The album would result in many achievements for the band; leading to 5,000 copies sold worldwide, 1 million Spotify plays on the single “Distant”, and features in Spotify’s official playlists such as “Punk Rock Workout” and “Pop Punk’s Not Dead”.

The band began to see new opportunities on the road, being a part of the AP Tour with State Champs and Neck Deep, the full Vans Warped Tour, Riot Fest and SXSW. They would also end up on tour packages with bands like Good Charlotte, Senses Fail, Counterparts and Four Year Strong. Furthermore, the band has toured the U.K and Europe various times with the Slam Dunk Festival and Trophy Eyes.

Like Pacific are swinging for massive success and with a recent history of the past few years of touring the world to having their merchandise sold at Hot Topics internationally, their trajectory is exponential. Make sure to check out Like Pacific on tour at a city near you!
