The Pack A.D. Announce New Album, Tour

For those who can't get enough of The White Stripes' brand of Led Zepplin-as-punk-rock brand of blues, you can always get another fix someplace else. Namely, via the British Columbia-based duo The Pack A.D.

Like the Stripes, or The Black Keys, The Pack A.D. play the kind of back-to-bare-bones-basics brand of blues-rock so scorching that it will most likely peel the flesh off of your bones, and then try to sell your skeleton a nice, new flesh-suit, fresh off the market. The duo, consisting of Becky Black and Maya Miller, have announced the new release of a record called Funeral Mixtape, which follows 2007's "Tintype". The new album is due to arrive via Mint Records on August the 12th.

As with most bands promoting a new album, the band will be touring their asses off in order to preach the good word. Here are the tour dates:

June 27 Berbati's Pan - Portland, OR
June 28 The Axe & Fiddle - Cottage Grove, OR
June 30 Jambalaya - Arcata, CA
July 2 Urban Lounge - Salt Lake City, UT
