Post metal fans rejoice, US quartet Pelican will be setting off to Australia to play a handful of shows for the second time since 2007. With no word yet as to who the supporting acts will be, July sees the band hit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Originally, the band had plans to tour Australia with Sunn O))) in 2012, but due to issues with the touring company, along with a prediction of poor of ticket sales, the tour was unfortunately cancelled only a month or so after being announced.
