Listen: The Pack AD share new track ‘Give Up,’ announce final album for the foreseeable future ‘It was fun while it lasted’

'It was fun while it lasted' is set for release on April 17

Vancouver duo The Pack AD have announced their final album for the foreseeable future, It was fun while it lasted, which is set for release on April 17th. As part of the announcement, they’ve previewed the record with the first single, “Give Up.”

“We’ve been a band for so long, and it’s very insular in so many ways, especially when you’re a duo,” drummer Maya Miller explains of the track in a statement. “It is this Us vs The World feeling, that highlights Becky singing ‘you may feel leftover but you’ll always make my team.’ This song really lays bare all the frustration and depression that has become part and parcel of doing what we love. We love playing music. We love our fans. We would be lying though, if we didn’t say that rock music is a boys club and it is a constant battle to keep our space carved out as music.”

Listen to “Give Up” below.
 

 
The forthcoming album comes with a biography by award winning queer writer and activist Ivan Coyote, who says, “All twelve songs do not waste anything. They are carefully crafted chaos, they are deliberately designed depictions of all the hope and the despair that making music for a living both brings to, and extracts from, an artists body, and her heart.” Read the full bio here.
