What is happening in the world of Summers fans? I know you think we may have disappeared, We haven’t gone anywhere! (Other than popes getting lost at the bottom of his garden for a few days).
It’s all about Hook ups, right?
For the Rock band SUMMERS, there are two types of hook ups.
In the modern world of business and music, contacts are a basic truth. So when talented brothers are approached by someone like Producer Clyde Ward you know it’s a hook up to keep an eye on.
But before we talk about the debut album (364) recorded by the U.K. rock group and produced by someone who has worked with such artists as Eric Clapton, Sting, Lenny Kravitz and George Michael, we should tell you a bit about the roots of this band.
Ricky: “I can remember when we sat down together, Crash and I decided to put SUMMERS together. We wanted to be ROCKSTARS like every kid, Killer songs and huge crowds singing our songs back to us.
A lot has happened since this dream. All the way from their first gig at their local church hall in front of just a few friends, to playing festivals such as Hard Rock Hell & Guilfest, to tours both sides of the pond.“The supremely catchy 364, is a perfect mix of Def Leppard harmonies and Bon Jovi arena-rock pretensions, making it a very tasty proposition indeed. With a cool image and all the right contacts, they are certainly one of the brightest summers we`ve had in the U.K for a long time” Classic Rock AOR issue 5
SUMMERS devote their time to perfecting their vocal harmonies, evoking memories of classic rock bands like ‘Eagles’ and ‘Bon Jovi’. Not only that, but their skin-tight, twin-guitar riffs will take you back to ‘Thin Lizzy’ days. “We make music, we want to go and buy!” “The song always comes first!” – Tim Hills
The second important hook up is the link between the band and the audience. SUMMERS are reaching across that gap in several ways. “We are not afraid to do what we do. No boundaries, no rules -says lead singer Crash
SUMMERS’ debut album 364 received high praise from both fans and critics worldwide. Andy Pope, SUMMERS’ Drummer – “There’s a little something for everybody in there. I’ve had 8 to 80 years old tell me how much they love it.”
So what’s next for SUMMERS? “The new album has finished pre production and we have started recording it then will be looking to tour it very soon after”. – Olly Browning

I thought I would share some of my recent trip to the USA with Y`ALL. It was “work” with a few days of relaxation, honest!!! So a few days in New Hanover County and Kure beech was needed to adjust to the jet lag, although waking up every morning for the most awesome sun rise was well worth it.
Ricky put some clothes on, Popes had a coffee, Crash and Jase got bacon rolls and Joedy turned up just in time to make our way to Wolverhampton. The Sat Nav took us miles away from where we needed to go and popes had great fun screaming at it. We had a great reception from the Wolves and what a stage, Crash found himself his own dressing room with a mirror just about big enough to do his hair and all took pleasure in trashing the sign on his dressing room, which he made himself, bless him. lol.
This stands for I came here to rock! which after the week we all just had is true of everyone we met. The start of the tour was lovely, in the way you get to walk into a venue and see some familiar faces and also a few new ones. We were stopped at every red light and under pressure when we arrived late with all the back line. The crew on the night were awesome and we had the introductions to the new faces of Tyketto (The Official) as well as the awesome guys from Bonfire Official. After watching both sound checks we stood in awe and knew this was going to be a great week. We were not sure how things were going to pan out as rehearsals the day before were so bad the whole band could have been drummers. lol, but gave ourselves a pep talk and went out to do what we know we can do. Londons crowd were brilliant giving us a warm welcome for our first gig and the new tracks went very well into our set, having people sing your song back that quickly is always great.
With less than a week to go and the summers boys are chomping at the bit, We are set and steady for the awesome Tyketto to arrive with the bonfire boys, with all three of us heading out to give musical medicine to those weary wintered rockers. Lucky for us it seems the state siders are sending the weather ahead, so kick off the winter blues and shine up your sequins because we are coming for you all.
