Singer P.J. Pacifico Faces His Survivor’s Guilt on Cathartic New Track; Lyric Video For 'Among The Living' World Premiered Via Huffington Post

Singer P.J. Pacifico Faces His Survivor's Guilt on Cathartic New Track;
Lyric Video World Premiered Via Huffington Post

New EP, Out 5/5/15, is a Sonic Departure for Pacifico

Licensing Deal with Razor & Tie is Confirmed

With an intense, clenched approach that evokes a storyteller's drama, singer-songwriter P.J. Pacifico bears his soul on the stark, upcoming, five-song EP ‘Ready To Run', out May 5th on Viper Records.

Pacifico makes a sonic departure on the pending EP, and nowhere is that more evident than on the cathartic, centerpiece song, ‘Among The Living'. Pacifico, a cancer survivor who has never tackled the subject in his music, finally faces his survivor's guilt on this emotional track.

Huffington Post Premiered the lyric video -

Huffington Post also included this text from Pacifico: "This is the most important song I've ever released. It's been inside me for 20 years, and I've wanted to write it since my chemotherapy ended. I've learned to forgive myself for surviving and have finally accepted that I've done nothing wrong by doing so. It was an extremely therapeutic song to write and an intensely emotional songwriting session, to say the least. Battling cancer made me the person I am today, and actually helped me in many ways. But the focus isn't only on me or my personal experiences. I've learned that we are all among the living and we all should live life to the fullest. That's the universal message of the song, and it means the world to me."

The EP will be preceded via a series of individual track releases in the weeks and months ahead. Pacifico recently debuted another one of the new songs, ‘All For Something', via social media:

The ‘Ready To Run' EP emerged from writing and recording sessions Pacifico completed in Los Angeles in late-2014/early-2015 with artists Garrison Starr and AG, two long-time friends/collaborators, who also provide background vocals and production on the tracks. "They completely took me out of my comfort zone from the very beginning. First of all, I didn't touch an acoustic guitar during the entire recording of this EP. This project is more about turning knobs and pressing keys. They made me think differently, sing in a style that I've never touched on before, write the most honest lyrics I've ever sung and most importantly, they encouraged me to take a risk with the new sound."

In other Pacifico news, a new licensing deal with Razor & Tie has just been confirmed, international distribution is set for ‘Ready To Run', and tour dates will be announced soon.
