A Distant Call is described in a statement as being something like a concept album written from the perspective of a character who closely mirrors vocalist Tina Halladay. The songs are said to recall a time in Halladay's life when she was unemployed, newly single, and dealing with the death of her father.

"We've been waiting to write these songs since we started the band and we were able to take these experiences and build a story out of them," Halladay said in a statement.

Tracklist:

Steel Sharpens Steel"
"Blood From A Stone"
"Unfound Manifest"
"Silver Line"
"Hardly To Blame"
"Cold Sword"
"Chopping Block"
"The Right Stuff"
"The Killer"
"Keep On Runnin"
