Switchboard Of Souls
The Valley of the dead, Where my heart bleeds, My soul ever searches for true meaning. In a world where hate breeds, And love fades into nothingness... ~Switchboard Of Souls [View Updates]

Switchboard Of Souls is a Darkwave/Synthpop band coming out of the Kern County, influenced by bands such as Kraftwerk, Joy Division, New Order, Depeche Mode and Clan Of Xymox. The band started out in 2001 with a goal to make music the way it was made in the early 80's IE. pop music based on synthesizers.
Since the release of their Maxi-single Don't Bother Me in 2003, Switchboard Of Souls (SOS) is currently working on some covers, singles and the reworking of a few older tracks, such as "Someone Somewhere" and "Amoretti Detonation". SOS has grown in popularity and managed to maintain a faithful group of fans all over the world.
SOS is currently Christopher Quintos who handles all instrumentation in the studio: keyboards, guitars, synths and all vocal duties. SOS is a progressive metamorphosis of a solo project called KQdelirium, created by Quintos. KQdelirium originated in 1993 while Qunitos was living in Hawaii. When he moved across the Pacific Ocean to sunny California, Quintos teamed up with other local talent to form a band called KULTUR. Later that year, As time passed, so did the nuance of KULTUR. Reminiscing over the sounds of KQdelirium, in 2002, Quintos transformed KQdelirium into Switchboard Of Souls.
SOS is in the planning stages of recording new material and will be doing a number of live performances. For audio clips and photos feel free to visit the Switchboard of Souls at: www.switchboardofsouls.com
