Pelican share first new music in 5 years

Pelican are back with their first new music in five years, a two-track single. “Adrift” and “Tending the Embers” also mark the first original music they’ve made since founding guitarist Laurent Schroeder-Lebec rejoined the band (he left in 2012 and returned in 2022).

These two blistering, towering tracks find Pelican’s post-metal intstrumental prowess as sharp and nuanced as ever. Listen to both below.

Pelican have been recording with engineer Sanford Parker and a new album is also on the way, details still TBA. Stay tuned.

Pelican covered Karate’s “Gasoline” last year as part of Numero Group’s reissue series.
