It was over 10 years ago that Michael “Jag” Jagmin and Jonathan Kintz last shared the stage together while in the Orange County band Odd Project. After that group disbanded, Jag went on to front the post-hardcore band A Skylit Drive, while Jonathan joined the then newly formed Of Mice & Men. Now, the two of them are back together again in the form of Signals and the duo have released their first single “The New American Religion.”
“It’s a statement that calls attention to the atrocious downward spiral our nation has put itself in,” says Jag. “The lack of empathy and understanding amongst Americans has hit a disgusting low. People are quicker to attack those with opposing views and ideas instead of embracing what makes us all great, and that is that we are all in fact different.“
“The New American Religion” was released on the 10 year anniversary of Wires…and the Concept of Breathing, the biggest selling A Skylit Drive album and Jag’s debut with the band. Signals have plans for a full-length album that will be released later this year.
