The Pack A.D. Sets New Record With 10 Consecutive Weeks At #1

The Pack A.D. have just wrapped up a very successful coast to coast Canadian tour and are preparing to head to Europe but the momentum keeps going on the Canadian air waves. For the past 10 weeks in a row their fifth studio album, Do Not Engage, has been named the #1 album in the country by !Earshot, breaking the previous record of 9 weeks.

In addition, Pack A.D.'s "Animal" is currently #1 on the CBC R3-30 chart, while album cut "Big Shot" peaked at #2 and "Battering Ram" at #4! "Big Shot" also made it to #5 on CBC R3's year-end Top 103 Songs of 2013 Chart!

Released January 28 Do No Engage is the follow-up to their JUNO nominated 2011 release Unpersons. Produced by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Mooney Suzuki, Dirtbombs) and recorded in a former Motor City chicken-processing plant, Do Not Engage has been met with immediate acclaim.

Throughout the past five albums, The Pack A.D. has spent a total of 17 weeks at #1 on Canadian College Radio, leaving them only three weeks shy of another !Earshot record…for now.
