Canadian thrash metal powerhouse Threat Signal entered the Billboard Heatseekers chart at #79 with their new album Disconnect, released in November on Agonia Records. The album sold more copies than its 2011’s self-titled predecessor in its first week of release in the United States, making it the band’s best sales week to date.
Disconnect was recorded and produced by vocalist Jon Howard and lead guitarist Travis Montgomery. Mixing and mastering were done by Mark Lewis (DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Battlecross, Coal Chamber). Artwork for the album was created by Ludovic Cordelieres of Rusalkadesign (Kamelot).
Founder & vocalist Jon Howard commented on the new album:
“Well, we made it to album number 4! To say it’s been a tough ride would be an understatement, but as the shit piles on, we’ll keep shovelling that shit off!! So we began writing this album back in 2012, and continued writing over the next 3 years until we were able to hit the studio again.”
“Basically, our thought process while writing was to not have an end goal of what the album should sound like. We didn’t plan to make a really heavy album, or a melodic album, or take anyone else’s input on what we should sound like. We basically just wrote songs with a clear and open mindset until Disconnect grew together. This album ranges from melodic metal, to hard rock, to thrash metal, and even down to a chill acoustic tune, it’s a roller coaster of a ride while staying true to the Threat Signal sound. You will feel the energy from all of our previous albums plus something new.”
“A big thanks to Agonia records for believing in us and finally getting this album released. Also a HUGE thanks to the fans for sticking with us over the years. I’d like to dedicate our album Disconnect to my fallen friend and former Threat Signal drummer Norm Killeen. May you be jamming with the best of them in the next life!!! Peace and love”.
