"After two records of Pelican worship, the sextet's third LP added bad-cop-only mouthpiece in Kyle Hardy, and the riffage got rabid. Other than a few well-timed, delay soaked interludes, What You Were is all onslaught, smartly detonating triumphant melodies beneath the collapse and crush." - Decibel Magazine.
Our first album with a vocalist and keyboard.
Produced by Sam Pura at The Panda Studios in Oakland, CA throughout April of 2008.
