Max Stern keeps himself busy. Less than a year after releasing Light On The Lake with his full-time band Signals Midwest, he’s already back with another LP from his folk-punk side project Meridian titled The Cathedral, due out on vinyl Aug. 19 via Youth Conspiracy Records. We spoke with Stern about the record, and also have an exclusive stream of a new track titled…
Signals Midwest - Limnology
Last day to get these EU/UK fundraiser tees. Offering XS and 2-3XL for the first time too! Grab one here.
Here is a poster for a show we are playing in Leeds, UK next month. That is a strange and awesome sentence to type.
13 degrees, January and seven. It’s warmer inside but we can still see our breath. Playing board games in low-light conditions. Making grandiose plans for the good times ahead. Outlets pump life into lighting devices we’ll regret we left on when the envelopes come. Yeah, we had some setbacks but it was a good year and I do believe there are things we learned from. If this is all a dream, then I don’t wanna wake up. If this is all a dream, then I’m staying asleep. Body heat warms up the crumbling apartments where friends and acquaintances gather to talk. We stood on the rooftop. I told you I loved you and as if on cue, the fireworks went off. If this is all a dream, then I don’t wanna wake up. If this is all a dream, then I’m staying asleep. And I will hibernate through every freezing winter. I can wait it out. I want to show you I am strong.
A house show I will actually likely go to…

EU/UK FUNDRAISER, PART 4 OF MANY:
We got these rad shirts designed for our upcoming EU/UK tour, but decided to print a short run of them for anybody who might want to grab one. These are made-to-order - you select your size, we add it to the list. They’re only available THIS WEEK - we have to place the order ASAP to make sure that we can ship them out to you before the tour starts. We’re also offering XS and 2-3XL sizes for the first time.
Pick one up here.

Listen/purchase: Wherever I Might Land by Signals Midwest
Cam just sent me a song that describes our feels from the past year to a T.
It was a hard year, but forward momentum is everything right now…
"we hatched a plan in early hours of the morning. i called favors in from family and saved enough to quit my job and there i was, lying to customs agents, trying to get through the border from my hometown through a snowstorm to an airplane to a shuttle to an airplane to a taxi to your door.
and now that i’m here, i couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. and i swear i’ll do my damnedest to express how good it felt to be so welcomed and looked after when i usually bring disaster to wherever i may stand. i know i lucked out when i touched down on dry land.
and we sweated through our t-shirts in the february summer. my amazement riding shotgun. yes, i think i’ll have another because even though my vision’s blurring, i’ve never been so clear on where to go.
now i know that it’s “everywhere i can” and now i’m back home making plans. i’m caught in cycles, looking for some work where i can use my hands. and though our schedules may not always line up, no matter where i am, i would be lucky to call someone like you “friend” wherever i might land.”
Ohio’s Signals Midwest have announced their first ever tour of Europe this September. The ban will cover nine countries in the span of 24 days. To support the tour, they have also announced a release of a five-song acoustic EP featuring new songs, alternate/reworked versions of existing songs and a cover song. The EP is titled Wherever I Might Land.
