The eight-song "Nighttime Stories" marks PELICAN's first release written front to back with guitarist Dallas Thomas, who took over guitar duties upon founding member Laurent Schroeder-Lebec's departure in 2012. In the process of writing the album, the quartet endured a slew of realizations, tragedies, and glimmers of optimism that guided the creative process to the most potent work of its 19-year career. Though the new material veers towards the darker tone characteristic of PELICAN's early songwriting, it's hard to imagine a previous incarnation of the band writing songs as meticulously crafted and detail-oriented as those within "Nighttime Stories", where the compositions recall everything from the triumphant call-to-arms of classic DISCHORD, to the vicious troglodyte battery of the MELVINS, to the dynamic interwoven melodies of bottom-heavy indie cult heroes CHAVEZ. Nowhere is this evinced as clearly as on initial album single "Midnight And Mescaline", the album's lead single.
