Cleveland’s Signals Midwest will release theur new LP, ‘At This Age‘, in September via Tiny Engines.
Recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago late last year, the album was produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss.
Watch an album teaser clip below.
‘At This Age‘ will follow up the band’s previous LPs on Tiny Engines, 2013’s ‘Light On The Lake‘ and 2011’s ‘Latitudes And Longitudes‘.
Life changes. It’s the natural order of things. As you get older, friendships evolve, relationships fade, and surroundings change. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but trying to find your place and a sense of balance in all of life’s changes is something no one really prepares you for. The four members of Signals Midwest can certainly attest to that. In eight years, they’ve borne witness to graduations and weddings, moves and funerals, new loves and heartbreak. But through it all, the one constant in the lives of vocalist/guitarist Max Stern, bassist Loren Shumaker, guitarist Jeff Russell, and drummer Steve Gibson has been this band.
“I was asking myself questions like ‘How do I evolve as a person but retain what I love? How do I advance through the world but sustain the things that excited me when I was first discovering them?“
These are the questions that guide the album, which marks some of the band’s most stark and mature songwriting to date. ‘At This Age‘ might be the band’s most direct, stripped-down songwriting, but it’s an album that sounds huge. At times urgent and anthemic, and at others intimate and poignant; a cathartic release of angst and anxiety and vulnerability and maturation. It’s their way of communicating with the world and navigating the creeping fear that comes with change.
