Set for release through Everything Sucks Music (UK) / Shield Records (EUR) on 17th November, 2014
“Pacer have undoubtedly and impressively upped their game.” – Rock Sound
Having released the title track from their forthcoming album ‘Mechanical’ a few weeks back, Pacer have revealed another cut from the record in the form of ‘Hammers’. As vocalist Mark Pavey says – “Lyrically, Hammers is a counterpoint to the track Mechanical. It’s the opening track of the second side and marks a thematic shift between the two sides of the album.” It’s a voracious slice of punk rock, complete with singalong Woa-oahs.
Pacer’s second album will be released on 17th November through Everything Sucks Music in the UK. Vocalist Mark Pavey explains that it’s “about how an intense focus can sometimes leave you without a wider perspective; how when you suddenly have no plans, you can feel broken.”
The band’s punk rock pedigree is undeniable with their first EP getting a release on The Bouncing Souls’ Chunksaah Records, the line-up featuring former members of The Steal and Twofold, and a Split 7” with Iron Chic, acclaimed debut album ‘Making Plans’ and appearance at The Fest in Florida under their collective belt.
With ‘Mechanical’ mixed by guitarist/vocalist Dave House at home and in coffee shops all over the south-east, House and Pavey found the self-imposed two day deadline they recorded in key to the energy of the record (and many others they’ve been involved with) – “We find it’s just enough time to track things without hideous mistakes while retaining the sense of urgency and authenticity of a band just playing together in a room,” says House.
