Pittsburgh pop-punk quartet A Summer High have shared their new single, "Kiss Me Gently." The song will be featured on the band’s debut EP Pretty Little Liar, due out on July 28th via Four Chord Music.
"This EP was about truly finding ourselves and straying from the path that so many other bands are pursuing,” the band explains. “Staying true to the pop-rock guitar-driven sound that we all grew up on and still love was extremely important to us. The band has always been about having fun and connecting with like-minded people. At the end of the day, if we are having fun making music and making people happy, we couldn't ask for anything more."
In addition to releasing the new song, the band has also announced a week-long tour of the East Coast and Midwest starting in late July. Dates are listed below!
A Summer High knows what it means to put in the work. Not only have they spent endless hours refining their uplifting brand of undeniable pop-punk, but they’ve spent an almost-equal amount of time connecting with their perpetually growing network of fans, also known as “ASHers.” Last summer, the band piled into Mason Levi’s (vocalist/bassist) maroon Hyundai Sonata and hatched a plan to busk in the parking lots of the 5 Seconds of Summer tour throughout July. The boys played acoustically to hundreds of kids every night. Some nights, security gave them a tough time. Some nights, security gave them ticket to come into the arenas. One night, 5SOS took a golf cart out to see what was happening in the parking lot, and tweeted about the “legends” that were A Summer High. Music execs in Nashville came to see them perform in various parking lots and busk with their hand-made signs, and soon the boys eventually made it to New York, finding their way to meetings with Spotify and Warner Brothers, among others. In a world where the old-school, DIY mentality has become a thing of the past, A Summer High have made it the focal of their young career.
