The Noise FM
"The Noise FM is one of Lawrence's standout acts, playing a tight-as-hell brand of riff-heavy rock that recalls acts like Muse and Placebo..." from Lawrence.com
"Dream Of The Attack...rivaling anything released by The Bravery or The Killers..." from KC Ink
"I would give these guys a big stack of speakers, sit back, and watch them explode..." from KCConfidential.com
"Though informed by the FM radio euphemisms classic rock and modern rock, the Noise FM strives for a considerably more intelligent sound. The Lawrence trio does, however, maintain rock radio's polished accessibility. Tight and technically proficient, the Noise's music is often aggressive but always closely calibrated, with equal attention paid to searing melodies and killer riffs..." from Pitch.com
"Whatever it is that The Noise FM is selling, I'm not only alert, but I'm buying..." from Chicagotunes.net
"What sets The Noise FM apart from other area rock acts––bands with impressive music chops––is a vocal prowess that leaps out of the speakers, that leaves no corner of a dark rock club untouched..." from Presentmagazine.com
"The Noise FM is a polished trio that moved to Lawrence last year after spending their teenage years in Fort Scott, KS. The group's melodic, kick-ass rock tunes take inspiration from top-shelf woodshedders like Muse and Queens of the Stone Age..." from Lawrence.com
"These new kids on the scene play an emotive indie-pop informed by the likes of Placebo, Muse and David Bowie..." from Therecordbar.com.
SIGNALS started up in 2011 after previous bands had broken up, with the members eagerly pursuing new opportunities and a new sound.
Phillip Yancey (vocals and guitar), Ezra Hagberg (bass and backup vocals), and Mike Smith (drums) all come from a background of music, with a number of years experience in bands and doing studio work.
SIGNALS music style (labeled by some as post-hardcore) is driven by a wall of sound, with each song containing distinctive riffs, brutally honest lyrics, and a high energy that is definitely visible in their live show.
Their debut album, “Guided Missiles and Misguided Men” (The title being taken from a quote by Martin Luther King Jr.), releasing June 2, 2012, is a concept album looking at the brokenness of man and our struggle with the evil that so easily creeps into our hearts. Although most of the lyrics may come across as dark, there is still a redemptive note that can be found within the lyrics, as they look at how God may respond to our depravity and what hope could be found there.
"All 3 of us are more excited about what we are playing now, than ever before." says lead singer Phillip Yancey. "We have no hesitation to pour everything we have into this. In doing that, we also hope that some people might be impacted as much by the music as we are."
