Long Distance Calling have announced that their new album will be released early next year.

It will be titled Boundless and it’s set to arrive on February 2 via InsideOut Music.

After adding vocals to their last two studio albums, the German outfit have decided to create a purely instrumental record.

The band say in a statement: “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 Long Distance Calling album ever – no guests, no vocals and all instrumental. We’re stoked how it turned out and this album has a lot of energy, heaviness, melodies and twists. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.”

To mark the announcement, the band have launched a trailer video featuring a snippet of their new material.

Boundless will launch on special edition Digipak CD, 2LP gatefold, CD and on digital platforms. It’s now available to pre-order.

Long Distance Calling have also lined up a run of European tour dates which will take place in February and March next year.
