When the Los Angeles Times, SPIN, Paste, Q, NME, and Mojo all say that you should keep an eye on a certain band, they’re probably not wrong — especially when the band in question is San Diego’s The Soft Pack.
The punk four-piece has spent much of the past year touring here, there, and/or everywhere in support of their acclaimed self-titled debut, out now on Kemado Records. They’re currently sharing headlining duties with none other than Kurt Vile, and to celebrate their newfound success they’re hocking a very limited edition seven-inch entitled “Gagdad” at each show.
You can snatch up a copy of the record on November 13th at the Casbah, when The Soft Pack’s tour finally draws to a close.
