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.

New Signing: Stu Larsen; Debut Album 'Vagabond' Out July 15

 

LISTEN TO (& SHARE!) “SKIN & BONE” FROM VAGABOND:

Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of Australian singer-songwriter Stu Larsen to its label roster. Stu will release his debut full-length album, Vagabond, July 15th (pre order May 13).

Vagabond was recorded at Sydney’s esteemed Linear Studios and was co-produced by Chris Vallejo and friend/label-mate Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger). A few years ago, Stu left his small town in Queensland, Australia and embraced a life as a bit of a vagabond himself, exploring and embracing opportunities as they came. He has been touring, recording, driving friends tour vans and pretty much anything else that allows him to continue his travels. The album expresses the dichotomy of Stu’s life on the road – his amazing journeys and beautiful observations along the way; contrasted with an inevitable sense of loneliness. He attracted new fans in North America and beyond during his extensive run as support for Passenger in 2013.
