If you’ve never heard of Signal Path it’s because those electronic signals take a long time to travel from mountainous Missoula, Montana to Buffalo. Born in the backcountry of America, this live electronic trio—guitarist Ryan Burnett, drummer Damon Metzner, and bassist Matt Schumacher—mash together massive low-end sounds, jam band percussion, and vocal samples to create an intense live experience akin to Paper Diamond, Big Gigantic, EOTO, and STS9—the latter two with whom they have toured with in the past. In 2009, after taking two years off, the band reunited to release their fifth studio album, Clash. Clash was the second album released for free from the band and became a viral success for them. Following that success, the trio relocated to Colorado to record its follow-up, Imaginary Lines, also released for free on their website. But all of that musical creation was obviously not enough for Signal Path because this year the band has already released three new EPs, The Prosaic Fades, Minds Make Lights, and their latest; Souls Unswayed, as part of a quadrilogy that should be completed by the end of 2011. The three piece will take a straight shot journey across Interstate 90 to Buffalo this Tuesday (Oct 11) for a live performance at Allentown’s DBGB. Don’t miss it. —cory perla
