CHICAGO QUARTET JOINING
POWER OF THE RIFF & BOOMSLANG FESTIVAL LINEUPS
Chicago instrumental quartet Pelican have announced a string of west coast engagements this summer, ending a period of dormancy that has seen the band receding from stages to work on new material and a growing number of side-projects.
Joining forward-thinking metal label Southern Lord's multi-city The Power of the Riff Festival, which sports a lineup including luminaries Pentagram, Winter, Noothgrush, among several others, Pelican will play installments in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle in addition to their own headlining dates in San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, and Portland.
The following month Pelican will make a select appearance at Kentucky's Boomslang Festival alongside Swans, Secret Chiefs 3, Horseback, and many more (full tour dates below).
