The band has toured Southeast Asia and generated a following among the pop-punk crowds in the region
The Secret Signal has been winning over crowds with their punchy riffs and melodies. And they’re doing so much more. They’re one of the few Bruneian bands that have toured in Southeast Asia to appeal to a larger pop-punk audience.
These days, they’re working hard to get their EP released. Recently, we’ve managed to speak with one of the band member Bryant to ask him more about the band’s musical direction.

Tell us how you got started.
Secret Signal started in 2016 as a three-piece band and eventually, we went through a lineup change, and now it kinda like Secret Signal 2.0.
What’s your genre and who have been your major influences on your sound?
We basically play melodic pop punk and we’re influenced by bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Neck Deep and also Simple Plan.
What’s your pre-gig ritual?
We are actually last minute people. We do things last minute, we actually jam one last time before we go on stage and also keep reminding each other what to do and how not to mess up.
What are your upcoming projects?
We just recently completed our EP and it’s now in the process of getting it printed for our EP launch due in the next few months. You can find us on Instagram at @secretsignalbn to stay posted on band updates.
What are your future plans?
We’re just about to finish our Southeast Asia tour and after that, we’re just gonna take a break on travelling around to play and focus on finishing off our album.
What does being progressive mean to you?
Progressive means moving forward and forgetting about the past because we’re forever in a forward motion.
