Local instrumental metal four-piece Pelican is preparing to release its fifth LP, Forever Becoming, which is its first without founding member and guitarist Laurent Schroeder-Lebec (Dallas Thomas has since joined the band). Yesterday Noisey premiered a new tune off the album called "The Cliff," and not only is it today's 12 O'Clock Track, it's also quite heavy. Back in June guitarist Trevor de Brauw told Gossip Wolf that Forever Becoming is "considerably heavier than our last couple of albums," and "The Cliff" fits the bill; it begins with plenty of low, rumbling bass and gracefully transitions into a serene postrock burner that keeps its huge, hard pulse intact. Check out the song below; you can pre-order Forever Becoming from Southern Lord. The album drops October 15.
