Long Distance Calling are set to release their new album 'TRIPS' on April 29th, 2016 via InsideOut Music. With just a few weeks to go, the band have launched the brilliant 80's-inspired video for the albums opening track 'Getaway', featuring German actor Ralf Richter (Das Boot, Bang Boom Bang).
You can watch the video here:
The band had this to say: "Ladies and Gents, here´s the brand new video clip for the song ´GETAWAY´. It was great fun to work with German actor Ralf Richter (Bang Boom Bang, Das Boot, etc), who played in a lot of cool movies which we really like and which we grew up to. We are big fans of movies from the 80ties and you might get a taste of that in the clip. The video shoot was fun and as you can see in the video, it was probably more fun for him than for us, haha. ´Getaway´ is the opening track on 'TRIPS' and we can´t wait to play it live. Tell all your friends!"
The band also recently launched a lyric video for 'Lines', featuring Norwegian vocalist Petter Carlsen. You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/13KVmcUp9r0
