The Pack A.D. Sees Career Best With 'Do Not Engage' Canadian Chart Debut

Vancouver's The Pack A.D. saw a career best this week with their latest album, Do Not Engage, entering the Top 200 at #87, hitting #16 on the Alternative Albums chart and #54 on the Digital Albums chart. Meanwhile, current single “Big Shot” is #51 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Spins Chart. In the U.S., the album debuted on the Top New Artist Albums chart at #64 and the Top Alternative New Artist Album chart at #25.

Do Not Engage was produced by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Mooney Suzuki, Dirtbombs) and recorded in a former Motor City chicken-processing plant.  To celebrate the release, The Pack has hit the road on an extensive North American tour that will see them visit both Canadian coasts and almost everywhere in between. All tour dates are listed below.

What The Media Are Saying About The Pack A.D.'s Do Not Engage: 

“This is the record where the band squares its shoulders and definitively forges beyond its howling, primitivist, dirt-blooze beginnings into eerie psych, stalking stoner-rock, and “woo-ooh-woo”-ing power-pop rampages” - Toronto Star

Miller's drumming still expertly threads the needle between tribal and tasteful, and Black still destroys her guitar like nobody's business. … at the top of their game, and their timing couldn't be better.” -Exclaim!

“Maya Miller’s determined drumming and Becky Black’s fierce guitar playing and rich, at times ethereal, vocals combine for an explosive, exciting – and even accessible – release.”-The Globe and Mail

Royal Canoe

in

A six-piece ensemble from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Royal Canoe give you everything, but on their own maniacally hybrid terms. It's one thing to reference a particular style, or even a range of styles. It's another thing entirely to grab huge handfuls of sounds from pretty much anywhere, throw them all together and come up with something both cohesive and totally distinctive—something that also happens to ripple and crack with energy. This is what Royal Canoe does best.

Boy & Bear To Play Sasquatch Festival; “Southern Sun” Debuts On Triple A Top 30 Radio Chart At #28

 UK MEDIA ARE RAVING ABOUT BOY & BEAR’S HARLEQUIN DREAM:

"Platinum-selling artists in their native Australia, Boy & Bear look to the West Coast rock classicism of Fleetwood Mac and Jackson Browne on their second album, given a glossy transatlantic sheen by mix engineer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty)."
-- Uncut "Ones To Watch In 2014"

" Folk-touched indie sunshine…" -- Clash

"'Southern Sun' is brimful of gleaming harmonies and sinuous guitar…"
-- The Independent

"California-dreaming stratum of 1970s rock…they've nailed the tequila-sunrise mellowness, which acts as a gateway to an album full of emollient soft rock. It's seductive stuff, pushing all the right wistfulness/optimism buttons and allowing the songs time to flow to a leisurely conclusion." -- The Guardian

In addition to their previously announced North American spring tour, critically-acclaimed Australian band Boy & Bear will return to the U.S. for Sasquatch Festival’s newly added second weekend, July 4-6, alongside such artists as New Order, Röyksopp + Robyn, Broken Bells, Rhye, Local Natives and St. Lucia.
