The Pack A.D. swear up and down that they are not a blues band, they are a rock band with perhaps a slight undercurrent of blues. But the duo doth protest too much, for the blues label— however misguided—is a term of endearment. Some folks think they hear blues where they really hear soul, and by soul they’re really experiencing the honest, hard-earned passion oozing from the microphone and raw thump of stripped-down drums. So, sure, we’ll set the record straight—The Pack A.D. are rockers with their own blend of blues, soul and even punk aesthetic as evidenced on Funeral Mixtape (2008). They aren’t punk, though. We don’t want to start any more rumors.
