Ottawa, Ontario Canada pop-punk mainstays We Were Sharks have joined the ever-growing roster of Panic State Records (The Flatliners, Rebuilder, With The Punches, etc). On Dec 11, 2015 We Were Sharks will be releasing their new 7 song EP titled Not A Chance digitally and on CD. Their new EP is a follow-up to their self-released debut LP Highways.

Here’s the premiere of We Were Sharks’ new music video for their new track “Without You” (watch it below).

Not A Chance is a departure from their earlier releases where the band found themselves writing faster and more mature songs while staying true to their pop-punk sound. They have released a video for their new single “Without You” which was directed by Ray Lavers and Chady Awad and shot around the city of Montreal.

The band comments on the new song:

“The song, lyrically, is about the aftermath of a break up. When you’re down and out but finally open your eyes to the bigger picture and begin to work on yourself. Although most people find it hard to believe at first there’s a good chance that you’re better off without the other person. The video concept is a pretty simple one. It just shows the day we spent filming the video. We drove into Montreal really early, crashed for a bit and then went and shot the video. We hung around, drank beers, crashed a bachelor party and then drank on the directors rooftop til the sun came up the next morning.”
