    Instrumental quartet Pelican have released “Cold Hope,” a crushing new song from their forthcoming album, Nighttime Stories.

    The seven-minute track, full of burly guitarwork and crunchy riffs, is as bleak as its title lets on. It’ll satisfy longtime Pelican fans hankering after the band’s heavier sound.

    Nighttime Stories, the band’s first new album since 2013’s Forever Becoming, will arrive June 7 on Southern Lord.
