Acclaimed Chicago experimental metal group Pelican have signed to legendary rock imprint Southern Lord.
Part of the Southern label group, Southern Lord specialise in bringing the work some seriously dark and twisted riffs. Pelican are a four piece instrumental group from Chicago, and are known for their dense guitar work.
Cult favourites, the band have released three albums but have been silent since ‘City Of Echoes’ in 2007. Southern Lord will release the band’s latest LP which will sit alongside similar signings on the label such as Earth, Boris and Sunn O))).
Pelican are currently recording a new EP in Chicago. The band have also announced a massive new tour across the United States with Wolves In The Throne Room, with dates including a triumphant return to the South By Southwest festival.
After the dust has settled on their tour the band will begin work on their latest album. No UK tour dates have been released as yet.
Pelican will release a new EP later this year.
