Based in Cincinnati, OH, Intro Signal released their debut full length album entitled "Sign" in 2015. The self produced album was inspired heavily by 90's grunge, classic/psychedelic rock and even punk, pushing the boundaries of a typical rock record with the inclusion of synth based instrumentation. 2016 saw the band fall apart due to lead singer/guitarist Chris Roscoe's self-inflicted mental and physical health issues, which unfortunately delayed the release of a new album for several years. Roscoe continued writing songs during this time and managed to release a few singles for Intro Signal, all written and recorded by himself, which further pushed the music into a more electronic driven sound. As Roscoe's health began to improve, COVID struck, allowing him time to find new bandmates for a new Intro Signal and begin writing music together as a band again. In 2023, Intro Signal find themselves recording a new release that focuses less on electronic concepts by returning to a more guitar driven art sound, with hints of melancholia and shades of optimism.
