Following the first singles “Kamilah” and “Giants Leaving”, LONG DISTANCE CALLING release today their third single and title track “Eraser” from their upcoming album which will be released on August 26th.
LONG DISTANCE CALLING’s eighth album “Eraser” is an immediate and heartfelt tribute to the gradual erosion of nature by man. The band has dedicated the album to the world’s endangered species, with musical elements in each song referring to a creature in danger of extinction.

Thus, the single Eraser represents the human species, which is both the main causer and victim of climate change. In a more than 9-minute long masterpiece in two acts, the album seems to end in sonorous, slow-motion devastation. But with atmospheric, even epic, strings, LONG DISTANCE CALLING conclude with a spark of hope, even if it is almost too late.
The official music video was realized in cooperation with Greenpeace, who provided parts of the footage to be seen, and is a perfect visual realization of man’s role as both an oppressor of nature and a victim of his own actions.
With the album “Eraser”, LONG DISTANCE CALLING have created a wildly evocative and diverse collection of songs. Crackling with live energy, but as nuanced and atmospheric as anything in their catalog, the album is another bold step for this highly idiosyncratic band.
