LONG DISTANCE CALLING WILL HIT STUDIO END OF AUGUST, SUPPORT SHOW WITH DEFTONES CONFIRMED, NEW MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE!
Up to now the year 2010 was a very successful one for the German band LONG DISTANCE CALLING. They supported Katatonia across Europe, played festivals and the good news keep coming in:
LONG DISTANCE CALLING will start the recordings of the third album at the well-known Horus Studios in Hannover (Germany) where bands such as Celtic Frost, Donots, Kreator, Eloy, HIM, Paradise Lost, The Rolling Stones and many more recorded some of their classic albums. We'll keep you posted!
Furthermore LONG DISTANCE CALLING will open up for the Deftones in Wiesbaden/Schlachthof (Germany) on Friday June 25th, which is a dream come true for some of the band members. Again, the show will underline LONG DISTANCE CALLING's undeniable quality as a well band.
Last but not least:
Brand new merchandise is available online, check www.myspace.com/longdistancecalling for new designs and overall news about the band.
2009's Avoid the Light is one of my favorite "post" albums ever, for what that is worth. And I recently even found a copy of their 1st lp, Satellite Bay, in Chicago at Reckless Records.
The odds of this being released by the end of 2010 or probably less than 50% given if they hit the studio at the end of August. The recording may not be finished until even the 2nd week of September. Then you factor in mixing and mastering, artwork and promotion. November, probably the 2nd week at best would happen.
But stranger things have happened. If it gets pushed back to 2011, it should come out pretty early if all goes well. Should add to another big year for music and album listeners like myself in 2011.
