Phoenix, Arizona’s The Summer Set are excited to release their new album Stories For Monday today. Pairing their infectious brand of feel-good, edgy pop-rock, The Summer Set are on a mission to win the hearts of audiences worldwide.
Led by frontman Brian Logan Dales, the band’s fourth full length Stories For Monday pulls influence from classic rock artists, blended with a passion for irresistible 80s pop, throwing punch after punch of sun-drenched nostalgia, reckless love, and Dales’ most transparent lyrics to date.
The band will be in the UK for an 8-date tour in May, kicking off in Bristol on May 10th and playing London’s Scala on May 12th, with tickets available via http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/The-Summer-Set-tickets/artist/1485424.
The band have put out videos for lead track “Figure Me Out” and follow-up single “Missin’ You”, which serves up a pairing of the band’s irresistibly catchy melodies.
The album features some of lead singer Brian Logan Dales’ most honest lyrics to date. Speaking on their journey to this album, Brian says: “I almost gave up on music last year. Then I wrote “Figure Me Out”. It’s funny how the most important ones come to you when you least expect it,” explains Brian. “I was hiding away at my parents’ house in Arizona, afraid that none of the songs written for the record were cohesive and that we were missing something important, and then one night after midnight I wrote this song all alone on the piano in the house I grew up in. It was cathartic and it changed the whole album process for me. This song made the other ones make sense.”
The Phoenix, AZ quintet rose fast through the independent music scene, breaking out with 2013’s Legendary which spawned hit singles “Boomerang” and “Lightning In A Bottle”. As winners of iHeartRadio / Macy’s Rising Star contest, the band shot into the public eye with performances on iHeartRadio Festival, a slot on the televised Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and their own Macy’s TV ad. Confidently straddling the line between both rock and pop, the band are set to truly make their mark with the release of Stories For Monday.
Stories For Monday is now available for physical pre-order. VisitTheSummerSet.com to watch the music videos “Figure Me Out” and “Missin’ You”. You can pre-order the new album now.
