Label: V2 Records – earMUSIC
Release: 2022

Release date: August 26, 2022

The eighth album of LONG DISTANCE CALLING is a direct and intimate tribute to the gradual erosion of nature by man. Thus, the band has dedicated the album to the endangered species of the world, with each song representing a particular creature threatened with extinction.

Sweeping, progressive and endlessly inventive, ‘Eraser’ is unmistakably another high point in the career of these passionate, musical individualists. When a worldwide pandemic threatened to throw LONG DISTANCE CALLING off track, they put their energy into new music, writing their best album yet.

Nothing can turn back the tides of time or stop their inexorable forward grind, but music can always be relied upon to make the journey more enjoyable. LONG DISTANCE CALLING have been expressing the inexpressible for the last 16 years, ploughing their primarily instrumental furrow with the skill and dexterity of true sonic artisans.

With a reputation as a formidable and dynamic live band, not least due to multiple European tours and high-profile festival appearances, LONG DISTANCE CALLING have been building towards some kind of crescendo of artistry and opportunity for some time now. In 2020, despite being unable to hit the road, the band released their seventh and most absorbing full-length to date, How Do We Want To Live? Unable to take their new music directly to the people this time around, they instead decided to throw themselves enthusiastically into the creative process all over again.

European tour dates are currently being booked for 2023.
