Pelican - New Album Details

Official press release

The mighty Pelican are in the studio putting the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled "What We All Come To Need". What guitarist Laurent Lebec has dubbed "the most perfect synthesis of everything we've done to date, sonically", this new album is a giant step forward within the complex, intricate, beautiful and crushing sound Pelican is famous for. The album features more guests than have ever appeared on a Pelican album before: Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), Aaron Turner of Isis, Ben Verellen of Harkonen and Helms Alee and Allen Epley from The Life & Times And Shiner. Content-wise, Lebec says "There is a current of inspiration that feels particular to each album's music and titles. Though we lack a singer, the song names are often conceptual. This new album speaks to a rapidly decaying world, the fulfillment we find in each other, as well as the resolve to move beyond disillusionment". If the recent "Ephemeral" EP is any indication of what's to come, we can expect nothing less than the apex of Pelican's creative output.

"What We All Come To Need" [cover art] tracklist:

01. Glimmer
02. The Creeper
03. Ephemeral
04. Specks Of Light
05. Strung Up From The Sky
06. An Inch Above Sand
07. What We All Come To Need
08. Final Breath

It's like a river of blood. It intrigues me.

And I'll want to listen to this album, for sure.

Black Conundrum
This is a nice list of guest musicians for this album. And the cover is pretty cool as well.

Cools, awesome cover. And Greg Anderson and Aaron Turner are guesting. It better be good

A Dying God
Cool guests, cool art, couple cool song names. Favorite album so far is "The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw", i'm looking forward to this release!
There is no God but the one that dies with me. I have no life but the one I take with me to the grave. We come into this world alone. And we will die on our own. I live. I die. Ain Elohim.

I'm not looking forward to this anymore. I love Fire in Our Throats and City of Echoes, but they played a whole set dedicated to new songs the other night and it was really boring. Heavy, but not interesting
