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. Tobi Stathers 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

We are very sorry our second album has taken a while to come to fruition but we’ve had members leave, Marriages, Babies, make ups, break ups, but we are pleased to say we are busy whittling away in the studio, banging, crashing even the odd wallop. We are all on the same page and have the same ideas so we are finally getting somewhere.
We wanted a new sound, we loved 364 and are so proud of it but we want to take this album in a new direction, we’ve been getting inspiration from all sorts of genres which is helping to shape the new sound…Don’t worry though we are still a Rock Band, that will never change…
This month we have celebrated Olly & Tim’s birthday, so join us in raising a glass to the boys.
We would also like to share some more good news, our manager and dear friend Kimberly from the USA had a successful heart operation and is making a great recovery.
Over the next few weeks we will share pictures and interviews from HRHAOR but in the meantime check out the interview below with Underkill TV.
Have a great week.
Things are busy behind the scenes in the Summers camp. The album is nearly there… We promise!
This year has lots of excitement in the pipeline… Kicking off by opening the main stage of a totally sold out HARD ROCK HELL next weekend!
We have been busy in the rehearsal room getting our chops together, ready to make some noise and show you guys what Summers have been up to, you’ll catch us debuting some of our new material. I say busy…. Possibly with the exception of Crash, who is still ‘busy’ working out what to wear! Spandex was the last word I heard as I left rehearsals this week……. ‘No comment’
Hey folks Ricky here,
So we are extremely busy in the studio with the new album at the moment.I have to say after all the hard months of recording, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I cant wait for you all to hear it, We all love it.
We are all excited about getting back out and gigging with the new material and a new great show. We cant wait to play HRH AOR again and hope to see many of you there. Also we would love to hear from you guys about what your favorite songs were from 364, so we can make sure we can incorporate them into our shows.Andy also has a few new jokes. (about time , I know.)
I have been putting the newbie’s through there paces in the studio, Not that they needed it. The parts they have been creating sound awesome. Andy also has learnt a few new things with the sticks. Drumming related? I can’t comment on that.
In the up coming months be a lot more visible as far as our social media and blogs are concerned. We will be having new photos, new videos and we will be giving some sneaky preview of the new album.
Thanks everyone for the continued support !!
