“ I know we always I say that, but this time it’s legit,” said guitarist vocalist  Becky Black, who together with drummer Maya Miller, make up the popular Vancouver based blues punk/ garage rock duo The Pack, A.D. . They return to the Slice, Wednesday, Sept. 28 as part of a quick western Canadian tour that begins, Sept. 23 at the Luna Festival in Revelstoke.


“Originally we thought we’d release one last album (“It Was Fun While it Lasted”) in April 2020 and tour that and that would be it. But then Covid happened and we couldn't do that. We were going to Europe and the U.S and Canada. So we’re doing it now,”  Black added.


“ We’re not ending the band or anything. If a festival wants us to play then we will. But these van tours are a lot. So we’re not doing that anymore,” she said.


 They  toured the U.S. and Europe as originally planned earlier this year.


 “ We toured all over the U.S down the east coast, through Florida and Texas. Then we went to Europe. But had to cancel the last few dates of it because of Covid. We both got it. You can only dodge it for so long,” Black added.


“ Crowds were really good. People were starved for it. And a lot of bands were touring at the same time as we were,” she said.

“ We’re focusing on  other projects,” she said.


 I’m focusing on  on my solo project. It’s a four piece band. it’s hard to describe. There’s elements of stoner rock, some pop and ’90s music. It includes everything I like,” she said, adding it is unlikely to make it’s way into a Pack A.D. set.

“ And Maya is writing a book. It’s a biography about our experiences , tour memories and about a band who isn’t cool on the Canadian  music scene and telling you how not to screw up,” she said, adding while she is excited to return to Lethbridge,  she can’t pinpoint any memories.


“ It’s always been at the Slice, I think and I think the last time we were there was in 2018,” she said.


“We’ll be playing a lot of the new album. We’re really looking forward to it,” she said.


 The Pack A.D. return to the Slice, Sept. 28. Tickets are $16.93 through Eventbrite.
