PELICAN Announce New EP

Thunderous  post-instrumental outfit PELICAN  have announced the long awaited follow-up to their sprawling 2009 full length What We All Come To Need, a new four  song EP Ataraxia/Taraxis to be  released via Southern Lord on April 10. With members now residing in separate  cities, the EP represents a new chapter in the band’s evolution with a  reenergized focus on composition and the utilization of the recording studio as  a creative tool in the songwriting process, yielding one of the most diverse  efforts in the band’s prolific discography.

The four new songs  highlight the manifold sonic strengths of the band by delving into moments of  triumphant melodic rock, smokey doom, ambient soundscape, acoustic desert-folk,  and minimalist electronics. In contrast to the EP’s origin as the product of  four different recording studios, including stints with engineers Sanford Parker  (Twilight, Circle of Animals, Nachtmystium) and Aaron Harris (ISIS), the  carefully crafted track listing boasts a cohesive narrative flow, lending the  release an epic feel worthy of a full album.

Ataraxia/Taraxis Track  Listing:

1.  Ataraxia

2.  Lathe Biosas

3.  Parasite Colony

4.  Taraxis

PELICAN is supporting the  release with a two-week run of dates in Europe and the UK, including coveted  spots at Roadburn and Dunk! Festivals.
