PELICAN "Midnight And Mescaline"


PELICAN2
Channeling the visceral intensity of their live shows, PELICAN's "Midnight And Mescaline" is an unrelenting riff marathon, careening from eviscerating heaviness to metal-infused fretboard frenetics to cathartic melody in a compact five-minute sprint. Paired with B-side "Darkness On The Stairs," the new release taps into the band member's shared roots in the late '90s DIY music scene, reinvigorating the quartet with impassioned punk ferocity.

In conjunction with the 7" and tour announce, Southern Lord has just digitally released a deluxe reissue of the quartet's 2013 album Forever Becoming, featuring vastly improved mix and mastering of the original songs replete with a revised version of the previously Japan-only bonus track "Bardo." Initially recorded by Chris Common under optimal conditions at Chicago's Electrical Audio, Forever Becoming was mixed in less-than-ideal circumstances at a makeshift studio in Los Angeles, yielding mixes that varnished the incredible tones generated during tracking. When the subject of a vinyl repress came up, Common, now helming his own proper studio, asked for another crack at mixing the album. The result brings a new level of low-end depth, atmospheric clarity, and tight, punchy heaviness to the album. Vinyl pre-orders are coming soon and is available from all digital retailers and streaming services now.

Listen to PELICAN's remixed/remastered Forever Becoming reissue at THIS LOCATION and watch the "Deny The Absolute" video from the reissue HERE.

Across almost twenty years, five full-lengths, seven EPs, and hundreds of live shows, PELICAN has cultivated a chemistry that borders on telepathy, catapulting the band from basement shows in their native Chicago to outlier appearances at international music festivals including Primavera, Roskilde, Pitchfork, Bonnaroo, Roadburn, and Maryland Deathfest, and headlining tours across four continents.

Watch for additional tour dates and music announcements from PELICAN to be posted shortly.
