Chicago-based four piece Pelican are busy readying their new LP, What We All Come to Need, and tuning up for their upcoming tour, including a date in Tempe. The instrumental post-metal band, who now reside in Los Angeles, played the now closed The Sets back in March, so their upcoming October 30 date will come with great anticipation.
Newly signed Southern Lord label mates Black Cobra will be in support. Their Southern Lord debut Chronomega will hit stores 9/29, in perfect time for them to hit the road and tour. Columbus, Ohio rockers Struck By Lightning will also be on the bill.
