Pelican drop new song, “Cold Hope”

Pelican by Marfa Capodanno

Chicago post-metal act Pelican are prepping their first full-length album in six years, Nighttime Stories, for a June 7th release via Southern Lord Recordings. Last month, the band premiered the LP’s first single, “Midnight And Mescaline,” and today the guys have dropped a new song off the record dubbed “Cold Hope.” Check out streams below.

Here’s more info via a press release:

“Cold Hope,” the second track to be released from Nighttime Stories – due June 7th via Southern Lord Recordings – is an unrepentant crusher imbibed with moments of atramentous psychedelia and is arguably the heaviest track on the album. Not only a standout song on the album, it’s also the name of a new biere de garde that the band members, who are known beer enthusiasts, are releasing in collaboration with the celebrated Chicago brewery Metropolitan.

Pelican‘s previously announced U.S. tour is set to hit Brooklyn Bazaar (w/ Cloakroom, Planning for Burial) on June 24 [TIX].
