Tonight was NUTS. Probably the rowdiest crowd we’ve ever played for. Thanks so much to all who attended.  If anyone has any pictures from the show, we’d love to see ‘em!  Email SIGNALSMIDWEST AT GMAIL DOT COM. For real.

Next up we’ve got STAY SWEET FEST in Richmond, Virginia. The lineup is insanely good.  We play Saturday 4/14 at 4:30, right between Candy Hearts and The World Is A Beautiful Place… EVENT PAGE

We’ve also got a local show coming up at DAG HOUSE in Tremont (Cleveland) on Saturday 4/21 with Two Hand Fools, Ultra Ultra, and some of our best friends from California. EVENT PAGE

After that, we’ve got 3 days with Restorations coming up in May that will take us down to Charlotte and Durham, and then up to DC.  After that we’ve got WMC Fest in Cleveland in early June, and then a west coast/midwest tour in July/August.  Oh yeah, and we’re playing THE FEST 11 this year.  That’s a lot!  Check out all upcoming shows HERE.  Basically…SEE YA SOOON!

P.S. I seriously can’t get over how good DELAY was tonight. They have a new album called “Rushing Ceremony” that you can and should hear and purchase HERE

Post reblogged from DELAY


i was 14 when i played my first show.  it was at a place called the grog shop in cleveland heights, ohio.  that show was headlined by a band called delay and until then i had never seen a band play as fast or as loud as they did.  my perception of shows and music in general changed that night.  plus, delay covered “just like frank” by less than jake, which i thought was pretty damn cool.  okay, it’s still cool and i love that song.

nearly a decade after that show (okay, 8 years) delay is consistently making honest, fast, catchy pop-punk that melts hearts and faces alike.  ryan and austin remain as two of the most important people in the ohio punk scene and have been putting on shows all over cleveland and columbus for over 10 years now.  they are also two of the masterminds behind the annual Berea Fest, the sixth incarnation of which is taking place this year on july 15th and 16th (and which we were just confirmed for - stoked!).

anyway, delay just posted a bunch of free songs you can and should download.  my favorite full-length of theirs is their newest one “plain language”, but if you really want to find a hidden gem you should visit their site below, click “music”, scroll all the way down to the record “tuning out” and download “way too fast”.  still my favorite delay song to date.
