From inception, Signals has been constantly evolving. Birthed from the roots and ashes of other works, Signals has shed all past iterations and mutated to a unique genre of electro-positivity. Over time this has been carried on through front-man, Jon Gray.
It starts in your belly, best when combined with drinks (herbal and caffeinated,) and transforms into anthemic, happy jams, causing unstoppable dancing (or head bobbing).
Signals is progressively happier, dancier, with a melodic focus on positive energy. Past-member, Bill Gray, is quoted as saying "Signals is a band, but it can also be one man. It was from Los Angeles but now, from where the man or the band feel like residing. Bleeps, bloops, and deaf-defying grooves have been a main inspiration. As well as a desperate urge to understand more about what this 'Signals' could potentially be."
Expect the high energy, sweaty dance infused performances from days of yore. You will leave with a smile pasted on your face, wanting to pay forward the good times you just experienced.
"Every taboo tackled; every muscle accounted for. Hoorah." -Bill Gray (Ex-Brother)

In case you were wondering what Signals beatmaker and remix whiz Jacob Safari does when his band isn't wrapping up a new Signals record with producer Brad Breeck of The Mae Shi, now you can. Jacob's mix leans heavily towards a buffet of classic electronic favorites from The Chemical Brothers to Aphex Twin together with surprising chaotic additions from Converge (mixed with Mr. Oizo?!) and Atari Teenage Riot. The mixtape also features unreleased Signals tracks including a Junk Culture remix of "Silverfish" that will be included on the US digital release of Signals' "Silverfish/What Dreams/Remixes" via Retard Disco & a Signals remix of Japanese pop-punk band Cubismo Grafico Five's "Catcher In The Riot", slated to appear on the band's upcoming 7". Signals will hit the road up and down the west coast on June 26 towards Canada where they will play a few shows at this year's Sled Island Music Festival in Calgary. Tracklist and dates below.
