Chicago instrumental heavyweights, Pelican, have just posted a new track from their upcoming album, What We All Come to Need. The album will be released on Southern Lord on October 27th and will be the band’s first full-length for the label after spending their entire career thus far on Hydra Head Records.
The song is titled “Strung Up from the Sky” and clocks in at a little over five minutes in length. So far I like it a lot more than anything on their last couple of records so that’s a good sign of things to come. 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 (one of the best and most under-rated bands of the 1990’s if you ask me).
