Signs of Change is a progressive rock album by After the Fire. Released 1978, after attempting to get a record contract, the band managed to get this made themselves at a time when this was all but unheard of. What was more of interest as that it sold out its initial 2000 copy run within two weeks with little or no media publicity. The band went on to change musical direction, leaving behind most of the progressive stylistic markers and redefining themselves as new wave. With a contract from Epic they went on to more success throughout the 1980s.

They recorded mainly at ICC Studios in Eastbourne, England (engineers: Andy Kidd and Dave Aston).
