“Little Mix storm US iTunes chart with new song 'Stand Down'” - Digital Spy

“Little Mix touched down in the U.S. last year with surprising force, scoring the highest-ever chart debut for a British girl group's first album” – LA Times

UK pop girl group Little Mix’s sophomore album Salute (Syco/Columbia) is proving to be a cross-over with its #1 debut on the US iTunes chart. Acclaimed Nettwerk One writer Shaznay Lewis contributed three tracks to Salute: “These Four Walls,” “Stand Down,” and “About A Boy.”

Lewis first worked with Little Mix on their 2012 debut DNA, which holds the record for highest-charting debut by a UK girl group in America at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. The track Lewis penned, “How Ya Doin” feat. Missy Elliot, became Little Mix’s fifth consecutive top 20 hit in the UK.

The Pack A.D. Sees Career Best With 'Do Not Engage' Canadian Chart Debut

Vancouver's The Pack A.D. saw a career best this week with their latest album, Do Not Engage, entering the Top 200 at #87, hitting #16 on the Alternative Albums chart and #54 on the Digital Albums chart. Meanwhile, current single “Big Shot” is #51 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Spins Chart. In the U.S., the album debuted on the Top New Artist Albums chart at #64 and the Top Alternative New Artist Album chart at #25.

Do Not Engage was produced by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Mooney Suzuki, Dirtbombs) and recorded in a former Motor City chicken-processing plant.  To celebrate the release, The Pack has hit the road on an extensive North American tour that will see them visit both Canadian coasts and almost everywhere in between. All tour dates are listed below.

What The Media Are Saying About The Pack A.D.'s Do Not Engage: 

“This is the record where the band squares its shoulders and definitively forges beyond its howling, primitivist, dirt-blooze beginnings into eerie psych, stalking stoner-rock, and “woo-ooh-woo”-ing power-pop rampages” - Toronto Star

Miller's drumming still expertly threads the needle between tribal and tasteful, and Black still destroys her guitar like nobody's business. … at the top of their game, and their timing couldn't be better.” -Exclaim!

“Maya Miller’s determined drumming and Becky Black’s fierce guitar playing and rich, at times ethereal, vocals combine for an explosive, exciting – and even accessible – release.”-The Globe and Mail
