After releasing three highly successful albums (Avoid The Light, Long Distance Calling, The Flood Inside) via Superball Music, Long Distance Calling have moved to InsideOut Music for future albums including their upcoming one, Trips, which will be out on April 29th, 2016.
After working on Trips together with Vincent Sorg at Principal Studios the band is looking forward to breaking the news about the album as well as their new line-up:
Since he wanted to focus on his private life Martin ‘Marsen’ Fischer has decided to step back from Long Distance Calling, but he didn’t leave without recording most of the keyboards and sound effects on Trips. In true Long Distance Calling fashion we have another surprise up our sleeves and would like to introduce Petter Carlsen on vocals. About half of the new songs come with vocals and Petter did one hell of a job. We are really happy to have him on board for Trips! In case his name rings a bell you are totally right: He already did vocals on the song “Welcome Change” on the album “The Flood Inside”. We are sure that you’ll love the new stuff with him singing!
Petter has the following to add about him doing the vocals on Trips:
I instantly became a fan of Long Distance Calling the moment we met on tour with Anathema back in 2010 – both their music and their personalities. I am grateful that they made a long distance calling to Norway, asking me to join in on this album, and I am very proud to be a part of it. We had a great time at Principal Studios, it was a focused, relaxed and very creative atmosphere at the same time. It was a pleasure to add my color to these well-crafted songs.
Long Distance Calling are already itching to present songs from Trips live: “More news and details about Trips will follow shortly and we cannot wait to hit the road again and bring you some love! Florian, Dave, Jan & Janosch”
