SIGNALS MIDWEST – Short Winter Tour Announced‏ [News]

January 3, 2012
Cleveland, OH’s Signals Midwest is heading out on tour in support of their sophomore full-length, Latitudes And Longitudes. The album is now available and shipping from Tiny Engines (CSTVT, Look Mexico, Restorations, Tigers Jaw).

The Latitudes And Longitudes vinyl is limited to 500 pressed on three colorways (75 teal / 150 maroon / 275 cream). The digital version is available via Bandcamp and iTunes now.

Signals Midwest recently unveiled the video for “The Quiet Persuader” off Latitudes And Longitudes. You can watch the exclusive premier of the video courtesy of Alternative Press. The video was directed/edited by Aaron Freeder.

Rarely do you come across a young band that startles you with such inherent quality. While Cleveland, Ohio’s Signals Midwest might be rooted in the ethos of punk rock the band quickly transcends the tag both musically and lyrically on their sophomore album, Latitudes And Longitudes. Paying tribute to the continual growth of legends like Small Brown Bike and Fairweather while echoing modern bands such as Balance And Composure and The Menzingers, Signals Midwest provide a unique perspective that resides firmly outside the punk-by-the-numbers formula. Call if post-pop/punk if you will.

Signals Midwest formed in late 2008 as a trio and issued their first full-length album in 2009. In 2010 the band expanded to a quartet with the addition of a second guitar player. That would be a pivotal move in the band’s collaborative development. Experimenting with and expanding their sound, Signals Midwest quickly outgrew the standard pop/punk pace. With 2011’s Latitudes And Longitudes there is a fleshed out maturity that shines through. Recorded mostly live, the album bristles with the kind of energy and purpose that emanates from a band confidently growing comfortable in their own skin.

The Signals Midwest Winter Tour begins this week. The band will be playing with a handful of great bands including The Lawrence Arms, Restorations, Spraynard, The Holy Mess, Everyone Everywhere, Sundials and Jet Set Sail.
