PELICAN To Release Their First New Music In Five Years This Friday

Two new songs, specifically.

Pelican 2024

Pelican is set to release their first new music since 2019 this Friday. Pelican's new EP Adrift / Tending The Embers features two new songs "Adrift" and "Tending the Embers", and is available for pre-order right here on Bandcamp alongside an exclusive shirt.

"Adrift / Tending The Embers marks Pelican's first new music since 2019 and the first songs written with the band's original lineup since 2012. The EP marks both a reunion and a departure, eschewing the caustic bombast of 2019's Nighttime Stories for more delicate and nuanced territory that imbibes their pastoral Midwest post-rock tendencies with triumphant riffs that feel indebted to the classic Dischord pantheon.

"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 here."
