Long Way Down is a five-piece melodic emo punk band hailing from the Netherlands. Formed in Groningen in 2006, the band quickly stormed the stage in the Netherlands and abroad. Their DIY tours has brought the band to Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and beyond. Over the years, the band shared the stage with the likes of Rise Against, A Wilhelm Scream, The Flatliners, Strung Out, MxPx and the Ataris. Drawing influences from bands such as Bayside, the Wonder Years and Taking Back Sunday, the band formed their own raw and emotional but melodic sound in the process. With their last record ‘Empty Hearts & Get-Well Cards’ released in 2011, the band joined the ranks of the White Russian Records family. Now, the band is finally back with a brand new record titled ‘Swinging for the Fences’, containing seven honest and gritty songs calling for hope and change.
