It's been over two years since Pelicans' last album « City of Echoes » was released. Never content to remain stagnant over the course of their almost decade long career, 2009 finds Pelican has shifted gears once again.
This year sees them on a new label, Southern Lord and presenting a brand new (their 4th) full length. « What We All Come To Need » is Pelican through and through and the apex of their creative aspirations. It is the album that straddles most confidently the fine line between adherence to roots and the mining of the unexplored. This isn’t maturation as much as it is confidence and purpose, and the latter are stamped on every note.
Greg Anderson (sunn 0))), Goatsnake, Ascend), Aaron Turner (ISIS), Allen Epley (Shiner,Life And Times), as well as Ben Verellen (Helms Alee) guested, lending the record organic diversity.
Along with the new album, a special bonus DVD « What We All Come To See » with live footage+ the making of the « What We All Come To Need » album. This special version is limited to 2,000 machine-numbered copies.
