Interview with The Summer Soundtrack

The infamous TV series South Park, The Rocky Mountains, and The Summer Soundtrack. Best things to come out of Colorado, hands down. The Summer Soundtrack is and indie pop/rock band similar to The Maine and A Bird A Sparrow. It's really hard to believe these guys are unsigned. At this point I think it's just a matter of time, especially with the release of the must have EP This Love. I have been wanting to talk to these guys and share them with everyone for quite a while now. Recently I just got that chance and here's what went down...

Me: If you had to pick one word to describe The Summer Soundtrack what would it be?

TSS: Word!

Me: What's the most embarrassing thing you have ever done while playing?

TSS: It's hard to say what's been the most embarrassing thing we've done. Chase (bass) started the trend of having terrible falls on stage. He hurt his foot really bad in the first song of our set and was limping the rest of the time. the next day his foot looked like a ball. But I'd say recently, Ben (vocals) had a two-in-one night where he accidentally hit a fan with the mic and then later slipping and sliding on some water he spilled. He looked like classic stooges or a cartoon legs flying up in the air!

Me: What inspired you guys to play music?

TSS: All of us grew up playing music at a young age and we went through testing the 'scene' hopping through several genres. But then we all came together after the failure of previous projects. This one stuck...probably because it's so catchy! I can't really say what initially inspired us though, but the overall fun and sweaty times it takes to be in the lifestyle of a musician keeps us trucking.

Me: What are your hopes for The Summer Soundtrack in the near future?

TSS: We are going on two U.S. tours from January to mid-March hitting almost all of the lower 48 states. We're hoping to catch the eyes and ears of some people who can hook us up and take us farther in our journey (labels, management, etc.) while also gathering a whole bunch of new fans along the way.

Me: Who would you say is your biggest fan?

TSS: Hmm...well we have a handful of big fans, but I'd say our biggest one locally is probably a guy named Ryan who is pretty much guaranteed to be at every one of our shows. He has even ridden his bike for about an hour to get to one!

Check out The Summer Soundtrack on PureVolume, seriously. My favorite song is probably "This Love", it's just a very well put together pop/rock song. Also, I'm not sure about you guys but I'm totally stoked on the tour announcement! I had a talk with their drummer Dallas and he told that they are for sure hitting quite a few states, a lot of them multiple times. I'm definitely heading out to the show in Cincinnati, OH! I encourage you to check them out and keep an eye on their Twitter for any news or show announcements. Feel free to comment!
