The Pale Pacific (formerly The Pale) is an indie rock/powerpop band based in Seattle and Bellingham, Washington. The band has released 4 full-length LPs, 1 EP, and 1 full-length live recording. They are best known for the LPs Gravity Gets Things Done and Urgency, released worldwide on SideCho Records. The band has not broken up but rarely plays shows, and is currently finishing up a brand new full-length recording. As all four members have been busy doing many other things in recent years, the record was written at weekly sessions and has been recorded in their free time. Drummer Greg Swinehart recently spoke of the recording process at Sloucher.org, saying it's close to completion, but too soon to announce a release date. He also claims it's the best thing they've ever done.
