Official press release:
Agonia Records are proud to announce the worldwide signing of Canadian melodic thrash metal powerhouse, Threat Signal. The band finished recording their long awaited fourth studio album and follow-up to their 2011 self-titled effort. The new album, Disconnect, is scheduled for release in the first half of 2016.
Since their critically acclaimed debut offering Under Reprisal (2006), which won the Canadian Recording Of The Year Award at the Hamilton Music Awards, Threat Signal became internationally recognised as one of the best modern acts in thrash metal. Their latest two installments, the intense Vigilance (2009) and reinvented Threat Signal (2011), have both met with unrelenting hype, with each entering the Billboard’s Top Heatseekers Chart, at #32 and #26.
Threat Signal came to life in 2003 and immediately began generating growing interest within the metal community. Their debut song “Rational Eyes” hit #1 on the international music website GarageBand.com and maintained that position for over two years. As a result, the young band signed to Nuclear Blast and started intensive touring, having performed with act’s such as Children Of Bodom, Soilwork, Motorhead, Saxon, Opeth, Kataklysm, Hatebreed, Epica, and Arch Enemy.
Threat Signal combines the complexity of thrash metal, with a more contemporary groove sound involving technical rhythms, and melodic musical passages. The band is led by frontman Jon Howard, who commented on the signing:
“We are very excited to have inked a deal with Agonia Records. We strongly believe that Agonia will be a great partnership, and together we will push Threat Signal’s music to more listeners than ever before. Our new album Disconnect in my opinion is the strongest album we’ve recorded to date. Thank you Agonia for making this happen for us, and we look forward to the road ahead!”
More details on the band’s new album will be revealed soon.
