PELICAN’s Southern Lord Recordings debut full-length What We All Come To Need – originally released in October – was issued in double-LP format on February 23rd. The deluxe vinyl version bears a beautiful heavyweight gatefold jacket, and the fourth side of the release contains three bonus tracks not available on the CD version. In celebration of the vinyl release of the album PELICAN will play a hometown show in Chicago on March 12th alongside Pinebender and Follows (ex-Russian Circles). This record release show will also be the sole location to purchase PELICAN’s Ephemeral Bean Blend; the band’s own limited edition collaboration with Intelligentsia Coffee of Chicago. The band states: “The richest, most complex flavors take patience and skill to craft and are over far too quickly. In that spirit we are proud to present this blend of coffee beans, who have known artisan care from their moment of inception at the farms at which they were grown to the roastery where their delicate nuances were honed to perfection by the skilled craftsmen at Intelligentsia. Enjoy the moment while it lasts.”
PELICAN will also take part in the recently-announced Scion Rock Fest in Columbus, Ohio on March 13th. The free event features more than 20 bands including Shrinebuilder, Yob, Absu, D.R.I., Cannibal Corpse, Voivod, Trap Them and more. See the full lineup here: http://www.scion.com/rock.
