The Pack A.D. Announces Summer Tour Dates Supporting Alice In Chains
The Pack A.D. just put the wraps on a very successful coast-to-coast Canadian tour, immediately took off across the pond for a string of European dates, and are now making plans for another national tour, this time with Alice in Chains. Beginning August 8, the pair will make stops across the country from BC to Nova Scotia supporting the iconic rock band.
The momentum from Pack A.D.’s latest album continues too. For 10 weeks in a row their fifth studio album, Do Not Engage, was named the #1 album in the country, breaking !Earshot’s previous college radio record of 9 weeks. In addition, Pack A.D.'s "Animal" was #1 this month 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 on Nettwerk Records 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.
“eerie psych, stalking stoner-rock, and “woo-ooh-woo”-ing power-pop rampages” Toronto Star
