United in early 2006, Becky Black and Maya Miller of The Pack A.D. mean business. They take life on the road, Civil War stories, coffee and cigarettes, stir them into a vicious concoction of garage rock and Jack Daniels and then boil it alive in the blues.
Holding the torch high in today's garage rock revival, this Vancouver duo strikes with a raw, hell-torn, blues-rock swagger that is equally contemplative and unflinching. (Marty Rollins - The Approach)
The Pack A.D. owes much of it's heritage to the crossover-blues genre - one that's recently become increasingly popular following the success of the White Stripes and The Black Keys. With the focus on rhythm-centric guitar, solid drum riffs, and passionate, unrestrained vocals, the Vancouver duo is at times haunting and at others irresistibly boot-stomping.
Their debut record Tintype, originally self-released, was re-released in January this year by Mint Records, who signed the band in the fall of 2007.
The next album is to be released in August this year. Until then, The Pack A.D. are here to take on the world, one town (and one cup of coffee) at a time.
