The New Pacific may have been born and bred in sunny Los Angeles, CA but 2018 had the four-piece up and coming rock band touring the country and bringing its uniquely heavy hook-laden rock to the masses. Landing a slot at Chicago's legendary Lollapalooza festival had the band on the BMI stage in front of thousands of music lovers and set the group on cross country tour, playing nightly shows and picking up new friends and fans along the way.
Comprised of Alec Strickland (Guitar/Vocals), Brett Carpenter (Guitar), Dustin Martin (Bass) and Brian Perry (Drums) the musical outfit cites influences ranging from Foo Fighters to All American Rejects. The hard working group extended their reach even further by landing a track on the Eagles of Death Metal benefit album alongside bands like Florence and the Machine, Kings of Leon and Jimmy Eat World with their cover of I Love You All The Time. The band released their anticipated 'Cycle' EP to critical success and played sold out shows at The Roxy, The Regent and The Echo in Los Angeles and shared the stage over the years with bands like Death from Above 1979, Alien Ant Farm and Marmozets.
The guys entered the studio with Steve Evetts (The Cure, Saves The Day, Every Time I Die) and the first single 'Anchor' was released in May of 2018. Soaring with hopeful anthemic energy, the song has been connecting with listeners from all over the world. Landing Spotify’s flagship tastemaker playlists Rock This, The Scene, and New Noise had the song tick past 500,000 streams and debut on KROQ in Los Angeles. Currently, the guys are back on stage playing Warped Tour and working in the studio on the next chapter of an ambitious year.
The first single is an upbeat melodic anthem recorded with Steve Evetts (The Cure, Saves The Day, Every Time I Die)
The band is actively recording to release 6 brand new songs this summer.
