Chicago's instrumental metal quartet Pelican are back with Nighttime Stories next month, releasing June 7 on Southern Lord.

While the band has two songs available for preview on their bandcamp page now, they have additional developments as well, including a beer collaboration with Metropolitan Brewing.

"Both Pelican and Metropolitan have somewhat limited scopes due to aesthetic limitations we've self-imposed: PELICAN will always be a niche enterprise because we play instrumental metal; Metropolitan's brewing output is limited due to the fact that they only brew lagers, which take much longer to brew than ales and therefore tie up the capacity of their equipment. Thus, both of us are pursuing a very specific aesthetic/artistic mission and creating a legacy rather than doing things that might be more immediately profitable," says Trever de Brauw, speaking of the collaboration. The beer debuted at a special listening party at the brewery last night, May 30. The collaboration is named "Cold Hope," after a track on the forthcoming album, and falls under the biere de garde style.

Pelican will be touring extensively this year, hitting the road next month with Cloakroom. Nighttime Stories is the band's first new record in six years.
