The Dangerous Summer is a rock band from Ellicott City, Maryland. The band formed in the summer of 2006 to write their first EP, There Is No Such Thing as Science, which drew the attention of Hopeless Records and other labels in 2007. They signed with Hopeless Records within 8 months (in April 2007) of starting the band during their senior year of high school. They then re-released their debut EP under a new name, If You Could Only Keep Me Alive, with new songs included.[1]

The band's debut studio album, Reach for the Sun, was released on May 5, 2009, and reached #42 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[2]

The band's name is taken from the novel 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.[3]

Their song "The Permanent Rain" was used in a trailer for the 2009 movie Love Happens, starring Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart.

An acoustic version of Reach for the Sun was digitally released on March 15, 2011.[4]

The band's second full-length album, War Paint, was released July 19, 2011.[5] It reached 149 on the Billboard 200 on August 6, 2011 in its only week on the chart.[6]
