Finally, the boys are back

I still regularly spin "Reach for the Sun," but admittedly have only enjoyed a few scattered songs on each record since then. I'm finally back into digging this band now, though––his newfound angst is on point. Very pumped to hear this LP.

The Dangerous Summer return with Mother Nature this summer!

Love that these guys are back 18 months after the release of their self titled album from last year. Great to see them finally get some solid recognition and keep the momentum going. So far, I'm digging these 2 new singles. I like the heavier and agnst tone of "Way Down", even though AJ's voice seems very throaty and raw these days. Hoping there is a good mix of stuff on the new album, since I'm also a sucker for their more melodic and upbeat jams, with AJ's cleaner vocals and the clean guitar melodies, as heard on Reach for the Sun. So far, the new stuff sounds like a natural continuation and progression from their self titled album, or a better version of what they were going for with Golden Record, before their last hiatus.

The Dangerous Summer have announced their new album 'Mother Nature,' out June 14th via Hopeless Records, and have shared the latest single "Way Down". Check out the video below.

Speaking to the new single, the band said, "This song's about losing everything, and reveling in self degradation and pity. When the world hits you, asking it to hit harder, and embracing the pain."

After a five-year hiatus, the band released their self-titled album early last year and has band has been touring non-stop since, rekindling their love and resolve for playing shows, being on the road, and writing music. Energized, the band went into the studio with Sam Pura (The Story So Far, Basement, Hundredth) and began recording new music.

Speaking to Mother Nature, The Dangerous Summer frontman AJ Perdomo said, "The album title 'Mother Nature' is meant to provoke the feeling of a powerful force, and living within and alongside that force."

He continued, "The mother, who brought us here, she will swallow us whole in the same breath. Also holding tight to the feeling of the mother, and that nature is female, and a mother to all of us. Growing up with my daughter, I feel the connection to the earth and the female spirit that the world embodies.
