How fitting that the week we’re raving about Pelican‘s new live DVD, After the Ceiling Cracked, the band announces an upcoming tour. Those in the Midwest and Southeastern U.S. can see the Chicago quartet thrashing their guitars about and living up to the instrumetal label so often given to them. Residents of other parts of the country will have to be content with the DVD, which becomes available on Tuesday. Preview some trailers of it here.
