The last time we heard from the Chicago-based quartet Pelican was back in 2013, when the band released the single “The Cliff” off of last year’s Forever Becoming LP. Today the band announced that they will be releasing an EP, The Cliff, which will include three additional versions of the song, as well as an entirely new track. The band released a vocal version of “The Cliff” today, with lyrics sung by Allen Epley. This might seem fairly unremarkable to anyone not clued into the fact that this is only the second time in 14 years that Pelican has released a song with vocals included. Listen below.
The Cliff is out 2/24 on Southern Lord.
