THE DANGEROUS SUMMER (USA – Hopeless Records)
The melodic, catchy emo-pop band the Dangerous Summer formed in August 2006 in Ellicott City, Maryland. Taking their name from the classic Ernest Hemingway novel and looking to groups like the Starting Line, Third Eye Blind, U2, and Name Taken for influence, the Dangerous Summer hit the studio that December to lay down their first tracks together. The resulting EP, There Is No Such Thing as Science, was self-released in January 2007. The group supported it on the road whenever school would allow, hooking up on shows with likeminded bands the Ataris, Cartel, and Hit the Lights. The EP eventually made its way to the California-based Hopeless Records, from which they are still a part of, this very day. The group’s first full-length, Reach for the Sun, was released on Hopeless in 2009, followed by the darker, more mature War Paint in 2011. After this record, the band fell under some line up changes, to eventually record their first album together, Golden Record, which was released in 2013. The band went on hiatus shortly after the LP’s release. In 2017 the band announced a reunion and reheaded into the studio, as a three-piece, to record the band’s fourth album, a self-titled LP which was released in January 2018.
