Toronto, ON – August 21, 2018 – The Pack A.D. are heading down to the U.S. this fall for the Woke Up Weird USA Tour to support their latest full-length Dollhouse. The band will be doing the East Coast and after a hot minute, finally getting back down to Southern U.S.A.. See below for full list of tour dates.
When their songs kick off, you’re immediately met with a one-two punch of searing guitar riffs and pulverizing drums, a signature symbiosis of raucous garage-rock that singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have perfected over the past decade. Their most recent album Dollhouse (Cadence Recordings) speaks to urgent thoughts on the current climate of the world. The album wastes no time addressing those issues with it’s nine tracks clocking in at just under 30 minutes making it the band’s most succinent album yet. Listen to the album here and watch the video for the title track here.
The fall will also see the Pack’s debut album Tintype reissued on vinyl via Mint Records on September 28. It was the mid ‘aughts and this band called The Pack came out of nowhere with some dirt and booze flavoured garage rock and the world made them put “a.d.” at the end of their name to signify that things would never be the same. Soon after recording their debut album, Tintype, the band went to the Mint offices with a bottle of Jack Daniels and walked out of there with a record contract. Tintype came out shortly after in the middle of a grey January in 2008. A decade later the band has played close to a thousand shows and released seven albums. Their music still feels like a cup of black coffee that you drank too fast but along the way, Tintype fell out of print. Mint Records have decided to fix that. Tintype is finally being reissued on the format it was meant to be heard… vinyl. It has it has been re-mastered and the folks at Mint dug through some dusty boxes for old flyers and photos to include in the liner notes to make it extra special and remind you of what you missed or can’t remember.
