Pelican New EP/Spring Tour


Chicago heavy-rock instrumental icons Pelican recently joined earthshaking kin like Earth, Boris and sunn 0))) at Southern Lord Recordings. Pelican is currently at Red Room Studios in Seattle, WA recording an EP that will be their first release on Southern Lord. The new material is said to be heavier, darker and very "riff-oriented" according to guitarist Trevor de Brauw. A very special guest guitarist who has been heavily influential to the band will be making a guest appearance, too, with more details to be revealed shortly.

In March, Pelican will be touring alongside new label mates Wolves In The Throne Room, including a return to the South By South West music fest in Austin, TX. at the Southern Lord Showcase. Upon returning home Pelican will focus on their fourth full-length album.

Check out JamBase's 2008 interview with Pelican drummer Bryan Herweg.

Pelican haven't been good since Australasia, but I will check this out. Wolves in the Throne Room are pretty sick as well, should be a good tour.
