Canadian noise rock/punk two-piece High Signs drops its first single

May 15, 2017 in news

Toronto-based noise rock/punk band High Signs just dropped its lead single, “A Much Larger Ocean”, ahead of the release of debut album If So, Then What?.  Sam Burton (guitar, vocals) and Rich Tailor (drums, vocals) form the restless and loud two-piece that was founded in the basement of a DIY venue in Toronto.

In 2016 the duo stripped down their sound into a more straightforward and sincere guitar and drums (and vocals) act.  “A Much Larger Ocean” introduces this new outlook and is a dynamic taster for the album’s buffeting sonic buffet.  Burton and Tailor explain, “It’s a song about the struggle to remain positive without clinging to empty hope or unfounded optimism.”

If So, Then What?, which will arrive this summer, was recorded by Collin Young at B-Town Sound in Burlington, Ontario, mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side in New Windsor, New York.  The cover art for the album is a painting by Sam Hargrove.
