Long Distance Calling have released a live video showcasing their track Trauma.

The footage was captured during the German outfit’s appearance at Wacken Open Air earlier this year and has been released to mark the start of the second leg of their Boundless tour.

The run of 18 shows will get under way in Leipzig on Thursday and wrap up on December 21 in Schweinfurt.

Long Distance Calling say: “We are happy to announce our special guest Motorowl and to have this talented band with us on our journey through Europe! 

“Everybody can look forward to this exciting support act, there is much to discover musically. Stay tuned.”

Speaking previously about the band’s latest studio album Boundless, which was released earlier this year via InsideOut Music, the band said: “We have a lot of different musical influences which have even increased over the course of the last few years, and you can definitely hear that on the album.

“I think it has become a very hard album, which maybe emphasises our metal background a little bit. On the one hand it’s also experimental – you can hear a rather beat-heavy into and a lot of textures.”
