Metal Underground Interview Front Man Jon Howard

Canadian melodic metallers Threat Signal just released their latest full-length album “Vigilance” on September 8th in North American and September 11th in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records. The band also had a headlining U.S. tour this summer alongside The Agonist, Flatline, and Thy Will Be Done. Vocalist Jon Howard, who also fronts Arkaea, talked with me about “Vigilance” and Threat Signal’s plans for the future.
xFiruath: Can you tell me a bit about how you started in music and how Threat Signal came together?
Jon: I got into music a long time ago. I probably started on piano when I was 11. Then I ditched piano because I hated the theory and everything. I got into guitar and started playing little Nirvana songs and things. Then I got into singing and formed Threat Signal in 2003. It started with just me, my cousin, and a friend down the street. It wasn’t really a serious project at the time, it was more just a recording project. We put our music on the Internet and the record label found us. We didn’t search for success or send out CDs to labels. Kind of a crazy start man, it kind of hit us by surprise.
xFiruath: How would you explain Threat Signal’s sound to someone who wasn’t familiar with your music?
Jon: It’s metal straight up, but it’s very melodic and diverse metal. It goes back to the roots and it’s got some rock elements in there. There’s thrash metal, groove metal, some acoustic guitars. It’s a very diverse project with a broad spectrum. There’s a little bit of everything. It’s straight up metal but it has a lot to offer.
