Pelican set to release first new music in six years

Official press release: Pelican, the instrumental quartet whose singular vision of heavy music eschews classification, is set to release their first new music in six years via a two-song 7" on Southern Lord coming as an indie exclusive on Record Store Day (April 13th, 2019 #RSD2019). Channeling the visceral intensity of their live shows, Pelican's Midnight And Mescaline is an unrelenting riff marathon, careening from eviscerating heaviness to metal-infused fretboard frenetics to cathartic melody in a compact five-minute sprint. Paired with B-side "Darkness On The Stairs," the new release taps into the band members' shared roots in the late '90s DIY music scene, reinvigorating the quartet with impassioned punk ferocity.
