Canadian pop-punk/emo quintet Like Pacific were formed in Toronto in 2010. The five friends all bonded over a shared love of hard-hitting melodic rock, eventually adopting the motto "stay pissed" to describe their approach.
They self-released their debut EP, The Worst..., in 2011, followed a year later by a second EP, Homebound. In 2014, their heavy, tuneful sound drew the attention of New Damage/Pure Noise Records, which released a self-titled EP by Like Pacific early the following year. In February 2016, the band finally delivered its debut full-length, Distant Like You Asked. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
