Pelican to enter studio next week
Pelican will enter the studio next week to record a new full-length. Tracking will take place at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL with engineer Andrew Schneider (Cave In) at the helm. The effort will consist of roughly ten tracks, including "City of Echoes," "Blissin Concrete," "Dead Between the Walls," and "Spaceship Broken - Parts Needed." Regarding the new material, the band states: "On a whole the songs are more concise and more aggressivebthan our prior work. Relentless repetition has taken a backseat to intensity and a desire to pack as many riffs as possible into each tune." The album is tentatively slated for a May 2007 release via Hydra Head Records.
