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

“The Pack AD have been delivering exceptional, garage rock flavored music, that brings in elements of soul, country, and even a bit of experimental. This month the dynamic duo unveils Do Not Engage, their latest two-fisted punch of rock awesomeness.” – Crave Online

Do Not Engage features all the fuzzy garage rock listeners have come to know and love from Vancouver-based duo The Pack A.D.” – Seattle Weekly

“If you like fuzzy, raw, lo-fi tunes like The Raveonettes have been putting out during recent years, or heavy and crafty songs like The White Stripes’ best, it’s high time you check out The Pack A.D. They’re like rock and roll’s best kept secret these days.” – Love Is Pop

“The album has a ton of catchy choruses and big beats that hit you like a sledgehammer and you get back up wanting more.” – New Noise Magazine
