The Singular’s second recording, Death by Radio, was the bands final recording to feature their original bass player. While more polished sounding than their first EP, Death by Radio did not garner nearly as much critical attention as the bands debut EP, even though it contains what front man James Pequignot considers to be their most radio friendly track, Super Highway. This recording contains fan favorites, One Small Step, a song about Neil Armstrong, and Styrene, the story of a man dying as the result of a Styrene chemical spill.
Death by Radio was released on September 1, 2008. The songs were written by James Pequignot. Vocals, acoustic guitar, piano and keyboards were performed by James Pequignot.
