Pelican Announce New EP, European Tour Dates

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Instrumental post-rock outfit Pelican have announced the long awaited follow-up to their 2009 full-length, What We All Come To Need: a new four-song EP entitled Ataraxia/Taraxis, to be released via Southern Lord on April 10th.

All four of the band members now reside in separate cities. According to the press release, “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.”

The EP was recorded in four different recording studios, including stints with engineers Sanford Parker and Aaron Harris (ISIS). Pelican is supporting the release with a two-week run of dates in Europe, including spots at Roadburn and Dunk! Festivals.
