CD/DVD Releases: Long Distance Calling Launch Video For "Getaway" Featuring German Actor Ralf Richter

Posted on Saturday, April 30 @ 18:07:39 UTC by admin

Long Distance Calling released their new album Trips yesterday, 29th April 2016, via InsideOut Music. The band have launched the brilliant 80's-inspired video for the album's opening track "Getaway," featuring German actor Ralf Richter (Das Boot, Bang Boom Bang). You can watch the video below.

The band had this to say: "Ladies and Gents, here's the brand new video clip for the song 'Getaway.' It was great fun to work with German actor Ralf Richter (Bang Boom Bang, Das Boot, etc), who played in a lot of cool movies which we really like and which we grew up to. We are big fans of movies from the 80ties and you might get a taste of that in the clip. The video shoot was fun and as you can see in the video, it was probably more fun for him than for us, haha.

"'Getaway' is the opening track on Trips and we can't wait to play it live. Tell all your friends!
Love LDC."

The band also recently launched a lyric video for "Lines," featuring Norwegian vocalist Petter Carlsen. You can watch the video below:

You can now order the album digitally from iTunes & Amazon.

The album has already been receiving some great reactions, and you can find a selection of them below:
