Vancouver’s formidable garage rock duo have released brand new tour dates. 
Not including a recent run of summer of festival appearances, this will be Becky Black and Maya Miller’s third Canadian tour in support of their fourth album, the Jim Diamond produced “Unpersons” and will cap off what has been a breakthrough year for The Pack a.d. Full tour dates are below.  

"...kicked the ass of a city (Vancouver) which, even though it’s had plenty of warning over the past half-decade, likely never saw the Pack a.d. coming. Here’s sincere condolences if you weren’t there, because, as parties go, this one was a fucking rager." - Mike Usinger - The Georgia Straight -review of January 2012 show at the Rickshaw Theatre.

Unpersons has garnered both critical acclaim and achieved strong numbers at radio. The First Single from Unpersons, "Sirens," peaked at #3 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Spins Chart and peaked at #5 on the BDS Canada Modern Rock Chart. Sirens has had 6,630 spins to date at Canadian radio to a total audience of 21.16 million people. "Haunt You" the second Single from Unpersons Peaked at #11 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Audience chart and at #13 on the BDS Canada Modern Rock chart. Haunt You has had 2,085 spins to date at Canadian radio to a total Audience of 7.76 million people. Take, the ferocious third single is currently climbing the charts and holding strong.

Based on their radio success,  102.1 The Edge Toronto has nominated them for two of their CASBY Awards ( www.edge.ca/casbys ) for "Molson Canadian Favourite New Artist award" and the "NXNE Favourite New Indie Release" award for Unpersons. The band played the main stage at 102.1 The Edge's Edgefest, X92.9's XFest in Calgary, and Sonic 102.9's Sonic Boom festival in Edmonton.

Unpersons debuted at #1 on the Top 50 Earshot National Weekly College Radio Chart and stayed at #1 for six weeks in a row. Additionally, it held the #1 position/spot for two months straight (September and October 2011) on the Earshot Top 200 Monthly charts.
