The Soft Pack Sign to Kemado, Kick Off Extended Tour

The Soft Pack

San Diego-born, now LA-based quartet The Soft Pack have a big year ahead of them including new dates, new songs, and a new label (and eventually a new approved wikipedia entry).  Residents of the UK, Spain, and Canada will get a chance to see just how rock ‘n’ roll swagger and preppy Southern California cool converge into a pulse pumping hip dysplastic affair.

The hardworking four-piece have signed to Kemado Records and are currently writing new material in between shows.  Their self-released debut is currently being repressed with additional tracks including “Parasites” and set to be released later this year.

The Soft Pack will finish off the month with their first UK dates supporting the likes of party-rockin’ rabblerousers The Black Lips, immediately followed by a tour supporting snazzy Scots Franz Ferdinand.  After a two week break they’ll take on a series of North American gigs supporting the British Invasion NME Tour with newer-wave rockers White Lies and disco-punkers Friendly Fires.  The Soft Pack also still have slots lined up for the Breeders curated ATP Festival in Minehead (including Throwing Muses, Bon Iver, Deerhunter, CSS, Yann Tiersen, and more) and the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona (including My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Aphex Twin, The Vaselines, Spiritualized, Gang Gang Dance, and much more).  Dates listed below.
