Record label: Fearless Records
The Summer Set's Stories for Monday, the Scottsdale pop/rock quintet's fourth LP, is an album that almost didn't come to fruition. During promotion prior to the album's release, vocalist Brian Logan Dales revealed that the Summer Set nearly called it quits in late 2015 amidst bandmembers' concerns that they had nothing left to say. Instead of a breakup, they forged forth with Stories for Monday, a collection of feel-good youth anthems for both the revelry and the morning after.
They're back. After nearly splitting up last year, The Summer Set are looking to brighter days with their fourth album. Radiating sunshine from every pore, ‘Stories For Monday’ tells a resilient tale of a band rediscovering the things that matter and producing some of the best songs of their career in the process.With the unadulterated sass of ‘Figure Me Out’, addictive pomp of ‘All My Friends’ and blurry-eyed singalongs of ‘When The Party Ends (Can’t Hardly Wait)’, The Summer Set have conjured up a bubblegum-stained blast of modern pop rock that sounds just as good at the start of the weekend as it does at the end.
