Get excited kids! Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based instrumental metal heads, Pelican, has announced (via Punknews) plans for a brand new EP. Entitled Ephemeral, the effort will hit record stores June 6th, via heavy metal powerhouse Southern Lord Records.

Per Pelican:

We’re pressing up 1000 copies, all of which will be packaged in custom designed and printed sleeves by our buddies Delicious Design League, the folks responsible for the screenprinted Australasia limited edition that came out, among a million other things they’ve done for us. The CD will only be available from us on tour for the time being. There will be a special edition of 50 for our Japan show as well, which I forgot to mention.

Southern Lord will handle vinyl and MP3 distribution, while Pelican will handle the CD portion. This will be the quartet’s fourth EP and seventh overall release and first for the heavy metal powerhouse label. Currently, the band is prepping a tour in support the EP. Considering the effort marks Pelican’s first new release in last year’s split EP with These Arms Are Snakes and the fact that, well, Pelican kicks ass, this is definitely something to get excited for!
