Long Distance Calling is a Post-rock band from Munster, Germany.

History[edit]

Long Distance Calling was formed in 2006 in Münster. The majority of their tracks are extended instrumentals, but the band has also worked with guest vocalists, including Peter Dolving from The Haunted ("Built Without Hands," from Satellite Bay), John Bush from Armored Saint (ex-Anthrax) ("Middeville," from Long Distance Calling) and Jonas Renkse from Katatonia ("The Nearing Grave," from Avoid The Light). Long Distance Calling has released two singles and four full-length albums: Satellite Bay (2007),[1][2][3] Avoid the Light (2009),[4][5][6] Long Distance Calling (2011)[7][8][9] and The Flood Inside (2013). In 2008 the band played at the Rock am Ring[10] and Roadburn festivals; the band toured Germany in 2009.[11] In 2010 Long Distance Calling and Finnish Swallow The Sun supported Katatonia during the New Night Over Europe tour.[12] They most recently supported Protest The Hero on their 2012 European tour.
