Background information

Pelican are a post-metal/post-rock band originating from Evanston, Illinois. Forming in 2001, the band gained quick acclaim with their initial albums "Australasia" and "The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw", characterizing an eclectic mix of stoner metal, post-rock, progressive rock and sludge. From that point the band gained worldwide notoriety, touring the world with the likes of MONO, Russian Circles, Unearthly Trance, Black Cobra and High on Fire just to scratch the surface.

Over a 15+ year career the band has managed to compose five studio albums, six extended plays and a host of other releases, mainly working with Hydra Head Records, Temporary Residence and as of 2009 Southern Lord Records. With the exception of two songs ("Final Breath" on 2009's "What We've All Come To Need" and the title track to the 2015 EP "The Cliff") all of the bands compositions are instrumental.
