Pelican prepares new album

Pelican is currently finishing up the writing process for their Southern Lord Records full-length debut. The band hopes to enter the studio early this summer to begin recording the effort. Production and engineering will be provided by Chris Common (These Arms Are Snakes), who recently recorded Pelican's new EP. Meanwhile, the group has now commented on their recent departure from Hydra Head Records: "Please don't get the wrong impression, Hydra Head are still our friends and family. But after 6 years, 3 full-lengths, 3 EPs, 2 DVDs, and a large handful of limited releases we felt like we needed a change of scenery, a chance to try some different waters. In others words, we are the same old Pelican just doing records on a new label."
