Glasgow band Long-Distance prepare to release their latest single Be a Man, out on 16th March 2018.
Be a Man is a moving single that deals with the aftermath of losing a parent. Lead singer Scott Gibbins explains “It is about dealing with grief and trying to fill those shoes as a family unit. It is also a thank you to
my mother, for helping me learn how to support her now her husband is gone.” Be a Man feels instantly intimate and undeniably sincere. Gibbins’ strong, haunting lead vocal is able to soar effortlessly over cinematic soundscapes to create something truly atmospheric, sounding akin to the likes of Amber Run or Nothing But Thieves.
Already a regular on the Scottish circuit, Long-Distance have played venues such as Nice and Sleazy’s, The Buff Club and The Record Factory to name a few. For the band - made up of Scott Gibbins, Jonathan Cairns(guitar), Andrew McLaughlin (bass) and David McManus (drums) - compassion is key, and as a result will be giving all profits from this single to the Simon Community Scotland charity.
Be a Man is out 16th March 2018.
