The Pack A.D.

Following in the tradition of the Black Keys and the White Stripes, the Pack A.D. play a blend of rock and electric blues. The female duo is comprised of drummer Maya Miller and vocalist/guitarist Becky Black, both of whom left their previous Pixies-styled band to focus on bluesier music. After emerging in 2006 as one of Vancouver's more buzzworthy bands, the Pack A.D. signed with Mint Records in 2007 and released a debut album, Tintype, the following January. Funeral Mixtape, the duo's second offering, was issued eight months later. The group toured heavily in support of both releases and eventually returned to Vancouver, where the bandmembers holed themselves up at Hive Studios and began tinkering with new sounds. Although still a blues band at heart, the Pack A.D. found themselves drawn to punk and garage rock, both of which steered the sound of 2010's We Kill Computers in a slightly different direction. After 2011's Unpersons, the Pack A.D. took a break from recording, and struck a new recording deal with Nettwerk Productions. For their first Nettwerk release, they recorded sessions in 2013 at Vancouver's Hive Studios, as well as Ghetto Recorders in Detroit, with producer Jim Diamond mixing the final product. The album, Do Not Engage, was released in early 2014. In May 2015, the Pack A.D. released a four-song EP, Meta Animal, which proved to be their last project for Nettwerk. In 2016, the duo struck a new record deal with Cadence Music Group and, after teasing with the hard-rocking single "So What," released their sixth studio LP, Positive Thinking, in November of that year. ~ Andrew Leahey
