I dont recall Threat Signal being on tour with Kittie, however singer Jon and bassist Pat did a side project called Arkaea with ex- Fear Factory members Christian and Raymond. Arkaea did tour with Kittie.

Threat Signal in no way sucks. Check out their three albums, you will not be disappointed. Alternately, I recommend YouTube songs "Counterbalance" "A New Beginning" "Inane" "Rational Eyes" "Beginning of the End" " Fallen Disciples", nevermind just check out their albums

^Ya, well I just skimmed through your Youtube recommendations....mmm, yes, they DO suck

One of the most glaringly cliche bands I've heard in some time. Frikken cookie-cutter bullsh!t...and it ain't even Tollhouse quality :)

The vocalist is FVCKING TERRIBLE, that sappy crooning and vomitous 'screaming' is just fvcking hideous.

Drummer musta realized this sh!t tub won't sail very far...smart move

Under Reprisal WAS and STILL remains awesome. Unbelievable debut. Then the rest of the band left after that album and everything else since has been utterly forgettable. Shame - all that potential down the drain.

I like Under Reprisal and it's a solid debut, but if any aspect of their discography is "cookie cutter" as hellrat says, that album is it. Puzzling why so many consider it their high point. I always felt Vigilance to be a much fuller, better-rounded and more interesting album, and the s/t went back to the Under Reprisal blueprint while improving upon it.

Alright this sh!t is getting annoying, they've been having too many lineup changes. Literally every album and every tour in between has had a different lineup with Jon being the only one left. I'm getting tired of this stupid bullsh!t.
Next drummer they get, or if any other members leave the band (I almost guarantee it this point) they need to say you're either dedicated to this or you might as well not even join. I'm getting ready to abandon this band................

The new album sounds nothing like Under Reprisal and anybody that thinks this band is cookie cutter has obviously heard the music, but not taken the time to actually listen to it. If anything I think the new album is the most cookie cutter of the lot. If you think Threat Signal is cookie cutter please name 1 band that sound like them?

ZMA, are you also not a fan of Iced Earth? Thanks to Hellrat's sleuthwork, we know that they've had 31 different members. Maybe, its more a function of quality over quantity? ;)

DJ, Actually no I'm not really that big of a fan, I like their debut, and like 1 or 2 songs off of their new release, but I've never been much of an Iced Earth fan.
I can handle lineup changes, it's just for some reason with this particular band it's especially annoying for me. Not sure why. Maybe it's because when Under Reprisal came out I listened it thousands of times. It was the CD to my summer that year.
