Hostage Calm go the distance

US band Hostage Calm have released a promo of A Thousand Miles Away From Here.

It’s taken from Die On Stage which launched last week via Run For Cover Records.

Frontman Chris Martin says: “It’s just a classic song about leaving, about problems reaching a breaking point. That’s why it’s a crushing two minutes – it’s the last straw, the final moment, the decision.”

The band have lined up 12 shows in the UK and Ireland next year with Man Overboard.
