Biography

On their latest full-length, Legendary, The Summer Set are issuing a simple, yet essential call to fans: Be legendary. As a sonic challenge to aim high and never back down, the 12 tracks that comprise Legendary aim to provide hope and inspiration, even if it’s just to forget your problems and have some fun for awhile.

The Summer Set’s singer Brian Dales says the core concept behind the new record evolved into a metaphor for the singer’s own personal state of affairs, as well as the mantra The Summer Set hopes to inspire their listeners with.

“It’s about wanting to be legendary to yourself and to somebody, and learning to love yourself and therefore finding someone to share that with. It’s about being the best you can possibly be: being legendary,” says Dales. “It dawned on me that I was sitting there, sulking over things that were over, and I needed to move on from it and be a better me. It all started right there.”

The Summer Set—which also includes drummer Jess Bowen, guitarists John Gomez and Josh Montgomery, and bassist Stephen Gomez—was formed in Scottsdale, Ariz. in 2007, when Bowen and the brothers Gomez (all previously members of Last Call for Camden) recruited Dales and issued the self-released EP Love The Love You Have that fall. By spring, the band had landed a deal with The Militia Group, leading to the June 2008 EP In Color, followed by a third EP, Meet Me on the Left Coast, in December.
