Chicago’s reigning gods of heavy instrumental rock, Pelican, have announced plans to play two very special shows in celebration of their 10-year anniversary box set release, out October 19th on Berlin, Germany’s Viva Hate Records. The elegantly packaged wooden-box set will be limited to a run of 500 copies and will encompass material from their four full-length releases and three EPs.

Pelican will play Chicago’s Bottom Lounge on October 23rd joined by longtime friends and occasional collaborators The Life & Times. Munster, Indiana’s Three Floyds Brewery – recognized internationally as one of the most unique and distinguished micro-breweries in the country – will celebrate the event by unveiling a special, Pelican-dedicated Doppelbock (one of the few styles of beer all four band members regularly agree upon).

The as-yet-unnamed ale will be served at the Chicago show and at select watering holes and specialty shops around the Chicagoland area for a limited time. One week after the Chicago appearance, Pelican will join forces with legendary doom-metal overlords Goatsnake on October 30th to play the Troubador in Los Angeles, an event likely to be one of the most anticipated So-Cal metal sets in recent memory.

10-Year Anniversary Dates:

10/23 – The Bottom Lounge – Chicago, IL
10/30 – The Troubador – Los Angeles, CA
