Album: Involuntary Movement

Pacer’s first album Involuntary Movement is an undeniable melodic slap in the face. With its extremely high replay value, this album contains 7 excellent reasons to be amidst the CD collection of alternative rock fans. Fresh and addictive, Involuntary Movement is not to be missed.

Music industry’s comments:

WOW! Can you say radio friendly? These guys are great! This is what post grunge bands should sound like.
-South of mainstream

I’ve come to realize that this local act is putting out material that tops most bands releasing their full-lengths on major labels. Not many CD’s that I own have a replay value so high.
-Digital Noise

Montreal’s PACER makes that football-field-size middle ground between Nickelback and Tool seen substantially smaller, blending sledgehammer riffs with occasional brainiac metal touches.
-The Montreal Gazette

Our A&R comments:
Well, these guys absolutely deserve to be known to a large public. They’re the coolest and it’s always a good sign when I have a band’s song in my mind for a couple of days…
