“Signal Vs. Noise is a pop/punk band from from the beautiful Pacific Northwest that originally formed in 2012 as a rock band under the name The Starship Renegade. In the summer of 2016, following several national tours and a line-up change, the band decided to change their name to something more suitable to their maturing sound and message.
Over the last year, Signal Versus Noise has been hard at work in the studio, preparing to release their debut album which officially dropped July 13th, 2018. Prior to their album debut they released two singles “Not Holding My Breath” and “Nineteen” which gave fans a long awaited taste of the new direction the band was going and gained them a much larger and more dedicated following very quickly.
As a local favorite in the Portland, OR area, the band has had the opportunity to share the stage with many amazing acts such as Against The Current, Spill Canvas, The Ataris, Hands Like Houses, Emery, The Rocket Summer, Acceptance and many more. In 2015, following their second self booked national tour, they were voted by fans and industry leaders amongst hundreds of other bands to perform on the Van’s Warped Tour Portland date. The band has also been a regular at major Christian festivals Creation Northwest and JoshuaFest and played cities all over the United States including Seattle, Portland, Denver, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Nashville, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, San Fransisco and many more.
Currently the band is about to hit the road again in support of their debut album on their 5th self booked tour that will take them around the Northwest and West Coast. With new songs for the first time in over 2 years and a rapidly growing fanbase, Signal Versus Noise is very excited and optimistic about the future.”
