Back in early 2012 we put out a split with a great band called The French Exit from Los Angeles. They’re probably two of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded / released, but I feel like not too many people know that it exists.
"Milkcrate" is about the house where we formed and played our first show. (THE MILKCRATE IS DEAD. LONG LIVE THE MILKCRATE.) "Stale Air" is another one of our favorite jams - I think we played it most nights on our full US tour in 2012.
Stream the songs on our Bandcamp / grab the 7” from Solidarity Recordings.

Very psyched to be doing all of our California shows with The French Exit this summer.
It’s been a good few months…
2nd row: French Exit/Signals Midwest split 7”. Released January 2012 by Solidarity Recordings and On The Real Records. First pressing of 500 (200 black, 100 translucent brown, 100 coke bottle clear, 100 translucent yellow).
I know our vinyl discography isn’t nearly as impressive as that of many other bands, but I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish over the past few months.

1) today we shot a music video for our song “the quiet persuader”. it was filmed/directed by our friend aaron freeder, who also shot our “live from bad racket” version of “in tensions”, which you can view HERE. aaron is awesome. the video won’t be out for a few weeks, but we’re all really excited about what we did today.
