Southern Lord Records has announced the signing of Chicago’s PELICAN. The instrumental rockers are busy recording their first EP for the label at Red Room Studios in Seattle, Washington. Guitarist, Trevor De Brauw, promises the new material to be heavier, darker, and very riff-oriented. A special guest (to be announced at a later time), who has been a heavy influence on the band, will make an appearance.
In March, PELICAN, will be touring alongside new label mates, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, which includes a stop at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas at the Southern Lord showcase. Following their touring adventures, the band will focus on their fourth full-length album.
