Long Distance Ascension


German instrumental rock powerhouse Long Distance Calling recently announced the release of their sixth studio album ‘Boundless’ for 2ndFebruary 2018.

Following the release of the album’s first single ‘Out There’, they are now pleased to reveal the video for the next single ‘Ascending’.


The band comments: “We proudly present the brand new video clip for our second single ‘ASCENDING’ which we shot in the studio, where we recorded ‘BOUNDLESS’.

We caught an intimate yet intense atmosphere, and we are happy to share it with you, enjoy!”

The album will be released as a special edition digipak CD, Gatefold 2LP + CD (incl. etching on side D) & as digital download. Pre-order & stream the singles now here:


Following the release of two albums that saw the band exploring the addition of vocals to their sound, the band have gone back to basics and created a purely instrumental record.

The band comments: “We are happy to announce our new album ‘BOUNDLESS’ which will see the light of day on February 2nd 2018. This time around the four of us locked ourselves in a room over a couple of months and pretty much got back to where we started as a band to catch this “go with the flow” feeling. This is probably the purest LDC album ever, no guests, no vocals, all instrumental.  We´re stoked how it turned out and this album got a lot of energy, heaviness, melodies and twists, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.”


The track-listing of the album is as follows:

  1. Out There
  2. Ascending
  3. In The Clouds
  4. Like A River
  5. The Far Side
  6. On The Verge
  7. Weightless
  8. Skydivers
