Pelican - Releasing 2-Track EP This Week

This coming Friday, instrumental post-metal/post-rock masters Pelican will put out a brand new two-track EP dubbed Adrift / Tending the Embers. The latter marks the band's first new music since 2019 and the first songs written with the original lineup since 2012. Tecorded at Jamdek and mixed at Hypercube by Sanford Parker. Mastered at Boiler Room by Collin Jordan.

Since reuniting with founding guitarist Laurent Schroeder-Lebec in 2022, Pelican have been playing career-spanning live sets in support of Thrill Jockey’s expanded reissues of the group’s first three albums. Energized by the initial run of shows and the invite to record a pair of cover songs for Numero Group’s 25th anniversary, the band began writing again in early 2023. As the surplus of material began to amass and it became clear there was more than album’s worth of material taking shape, the band booked studio time with longtime collaborator Sanford Parker in order to share the burgeoning new direction with fans sooner than later. The resulting two song EP is available digitally from all DSPs and as a limited edition tape exclusively via their Bandcamp site.
