Pelican Storms the States

There’s been a post-rock eruption in the past two years, and some would argue that Mogwai isn’t the only band leading the instru-metal revolution. One of Hydra Head’s best-selling and hardest-working bands, Pelican, has given the kids a little of the epic to add to their metal.

Touring like crazy for the past few years, this Chicago-bred, L.A.-based quartet has invaded every city from Vancouver to Tokyo, with bands like Sunn O))) and Explosions in the Sky.  What’s one more trek through the States for the boys?
