The Dangerous Summer

Straightforward, earnest rock music seems to be a contradiction from the direction popular music has strayed as of late. The need for genuine lyrics, purposeful direction and accessible melodies has been long overdue. The Dangerous Summer have crafted a throwback to the days when music was charged with hope and contained a much-needed brand of sincerity.

As Payne recalls, The Dangerous Summer’s first NYC show was held in a bar basement, and included an audience of five. But for this collection of friends who’d been toiling away in the band since high school, these were simply the dues of an ambitious group of musicians. And that low attendance record soon became a thing of the past once Hopeless Records came calling, finding the band’s quintessential rock pleasers just as inviting and impressive as those hometown patrons.

Since then, the band has made amazing strides and gained thousands of fans. They have just released their 2nd full length studio follow up album to ” Reach For The Sun” entitled “War Paint”. The album has been receiving amazing reviews from fans and critics which solidified the band as one to watch for.

T-Shirts For Tomorrow
T-Shirts For TomorrowIn 2007, Brandon Preece and Ethan Gilbert formed a band together, originally an acoustic duo. And in the year 2010 they evolved!
Now with Bass and Lead Guitar, from Kevin (Bass) and Erik (Guitar) the once acoustic duo now draws comparisons to All Time Low, Hit The Lights and even A Day to Remember. With melodic guitar riffs and the occasional breakdown, T4T makes a sound all their own.


The movie Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead may come to mind when one meets someone from Denver, CO. Little did Ashtree Close know that they would be able to relate to that movie’s sentiment when they formed their band ?fteen years after it’s creation.

When a city is heralded for its most popular bands’ musical stylings it sends a shockwave through the surrounding band’s hearts, left with the dread that they must ?t in or face perishing... sometimes. The current glow-pop movement rife with neon bleeding tweens sporting headbands and other super?uous merch items has led some to ?nd happiness, but for Denver’s Ashtree Close it has done something different. For the band of four, named after their singer’s grandmother’s cobblestone tree-lined street in London, England, it has propelled a need inside of them to get out of Denver, long before they’re dead.

Led by the booming sound of singer Will Johnston’s winding piano rock, Ashtree Close refreshes a beloved sound in a welcome way. A humble beginning has made them the staple ‘hometown opening band’ for national acts like Mae, Fun, and Terrible Things, but the quartet longs for much more. A mid-national tour last spring saw them playing the Shirts For A Cure SXSW party and playing alongside Circa Survive, Recover, Strike Anywhere, and many more.

After their jaunt through the dust-belt, the band returned home to bury themselves in song to write and record a batch of new songs that would shape the future of their band. Fully aware that music that they present to the world has the ability not only to get them out, but to get them through, Ashtree Close now presents to you, the “EP.”!/ashtreeofficial
