To commemorate the release, Out is premiering the new video for the song "Self Defeated," which features lead singer Jordan Black, who identifies as gay and is an advocate for LGBTQ+ right within the punk scene.

"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," Black says. "Like Pacific has some of the most accepting fans and an amazing queer fan base." Fans are sure to love this latest video, which features the fun side of Black and the band.

"Filming for this video was actually wild. We changed our minds last minute and decided to try and make it goofy," Black says. "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."
