Post-metal stalwarts Pelican recently shared a cover of Karate's "Gasoline". The original track was released in 1995 on the Massachusetts-based band's self-titled debut album, Karate.

Par from the course for Pelican, the newly reimagined version of the track also features vocals provided by Pinebender's Chris Hansen.

The cover is part of a series presented by Numero Group, which is in the process of archiving reimagined songs and some of the previous releases have included Skullcrusher, La Luz, Leon Bridges, and more.

Pelican shared the following:

We're all huge fans of Numero, so when they asked us if we'd cover music from their extensive catalog we were beyond honored. Karate's 'Gasoline' emerged as a superb vehicle for lifting the curtain on the emo-adjacent influences that been foundational to our music.

We tapped our good friend Chris Hansen from Pinebender, with whom we've shared many a stage, to handle the song's vocals as the timbre of his voice seems particularly dialed in for this material and we couldn't be more stoked with how it turned out.
