A bit of British-based tour news to start off your Thursday (or Skyrim Eve, as it will henceforth be known I’m sure), and it’s a doozey. Pelican, Southern Lord’s own sludgey post-metal sons of bitches will be hitting mainland UK in April next year (a way off, but closer than you think, trust me). No supports announced as of yet, but they’ll be stopping at all of the standard places.
I first caught Pelican many years ago in Birmingham, co-headlining with the now defunct These Arms Are Snakes. TAAS played first; I danced. Pelican came on; I collapsed at the bar. That they literally floored me should provide ample assurances to anyone on the fence about attending, even if it did the exact opposite to everyone else that I was to drive home at 70mph+ later that evening.
Dates on the poster if you’re blind. I may well have to go and relive my meeting with the floor of The Garage, so you’ll know who to look for if you turn up yourself.
