THREAT SIGNAL: 'Counterbalance' Video Launched

August 16, 2006

Just days before the release of their debut album, "Under Reprisal", on Nuclear Blast Records, Canadian metal hopefuls THREAT SIGNAL have launched a self-produced video for the song "Counterbalance". The clip features footage of the band on the road, in the studio with producer Christian Olde Wolbers of FEAR FACTORY, snippets from the "Rational Eyes" production video shoot, and plenty of live footage from North American shows as well as the band's recent appearance at Germany's Earthshaker Fest. The new video was shot and put together by the band and their crew themselves and can be seen at this location.

THREAT SIGNAL are boiling with excitement about the "Under Reprisal" North American release this Tuesday, August 22 and the chance to play Earthshaker. Vocalist Jon Howard speaks from his home in Hamilton, Ontario: "Ever since I was a kid I've dreamed of releasing an album, and next week that dream becomes a reality. Words cannot describe the excitement! 'Under Reprisal' has been released in Europe for a few months now, and has been doing great. However now it is being released on our home turf, and we'll actually get to see our album in stores, our video played, and even hear our music on the radio, it's a trip.

"Playing the Earthshaker Fest was just completely ridiculous. They treated us like fuckin' rock stars. We played on a gigantic stage where we could actually move around, and to thousands of people who most of them knew who we were! Germany rules!"

THREAT SIGNAL will hit the road in October 5 for a five-week North American tour supporting SOILWORK, DARKEST HOUR and MNEMIC, sponsored by Decibel magazine. "I've always been a huge fan of SOILWORK, and our band is actually influenced by SOILWORK," admits Howard. "I must have seen that band perform at least five times last year, and every show I was wishing we could open for them. Now we are. Watch out for THREAT SIGNAL, boys!"
