Local Stew – Signum A.D. [Audio]
On this edition of the local stew, we feature American rock band Signum A.D., who has a member from right here in Acadiana. The band includes vocalist Sammy Vincent, who was the former frontman of local band Karma Protocol.
The band is locking down a solid tour for Spring of 2013 now, while the band is touring in support of the new EP, Veto The Vultures : Vol. 1, this fall, playing with bands like Otherwise, Pop Evil, and LIT. Listen to the first single from their EP called ‘Chemical Lifeline’ below:
This is a biography on the band from their official Facebook page:
Recharged with a powerful new lineup, American rock band Signum A.D. exemplifies the power of perseverance. When the only remaining original member, guitarist Elliott Ecton, was faced with the complete destruction of his former lineup, he had two choices; Give up or take the challenge of rebuilding head on. He embraced the latter. Fueled by an unquenchable passion and supported by a solid administrative team, a nationwide search led to the powerhouse musicians: Blake Mattea (guitar), Justin Mattea (bass), Angel Delgado (drums), and Sammy Vincent (vocals). Referred & heavily acclaimed by producer Brett Hestla, Sammy brings unrivaled emotion, soul, and presence to the stage. The twins, Blake and Justin, are well versed in songwriting, having had a chart-topping hit on the Billboard charts. Angel emerged via Signum A.D.’s relationship with rock band Atom Smash. Angel’s technicality and musicianship is the perfect spine for Signum A.D.’s inventive & hard-hitting sound.
A taste of the ‘new’ Signum A.D. sound led Grammy winning producer Malcolm Springer to the decision he ‘had to have’ the band. They are slated to hit the studio in mid May, with an expected release, late summer of 2012. When shown Sammy’s voice, Rick Schmidt, the Vice-President of Signum A.D.’s ex-label said, “…it’s not hype. The guy can sing with emotion and has the pipes. One listen and you’ll say, ‘WOW! That dude can sing!’” The “New” Signum A.D. is almost genetic in its creation. 5 diverse members. 5 creative music angles. 5 solid performers. The swelling mystique and industry buzz is boiling, and about to come into being.
The EP, ‘Veto the Vultures, Vol. 1′ is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and on their official Facebook page.
