2018 release, the first album in almost five years from the Ellicott City, Maryland-based rockers. The album is filled with all the textured alternative rock and lyrical honesty that fans fell in love with in the first place. The Dangerous Summer formed in the summer of 2006. Over the years the band has sold over 60,000 records and over 300,000 singles. The band's name is taken from the book of the same name. The band has stated influences from Third Eye Blind, Bright Eyes, U2, Phil Collins, Explosions in the Sky, Jimmy Eat World, and Andrew McMahon. The band went on hiatus in 2013 and announced their reunion in 2017 minus member Cody Payne.
