Hit the Lights Issue Tour Statement

Posted by: Jason Tate (10/30/11)
Hit the Lights have issued a statement about The Dangerous Summer dropping off the upcoming tour. This goes into a little more detail than what Nick originally posted.
Message from the BandWe just got word that the Dangerous Summer will be dropping off our tour due to "reasons beyond their control". Apparently there was an inner band dispute in Chicago resulting in one of the members of TDS being kicked out of the band (or so we're told). The band went home to regroup and as of last night, had offered to do the tour acoustically.

We were stoked that TDS were going to find a way to do the tour, and we offered various ways to help them continue the tour (AJ playing acoustic and riding with HTL, having some members of HTL fill in for TDS etc). We would still like to publicly offer AJ to come out and play acoustic TDS songs on the tour. You should email him and let him know that you’d like that too: andrew.perdomo@gmail.com

Don't worry, the tour is still happening and is going to be really special, and we look forward to seeing all of you out there!

Stay tuned for an update....

PS, Cody is selling the Dangerous Summer’s tour van and trailer. The very least we could do is help them get it off their hands.... http://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/2673598778.html

Would be nice if AJ stayed on and did it acoustically.

because their stuck in high school. they need to grow up and get their shit together. they also need to drop their ego's. i met them a month ago when they were on tour with icallfives and aj especially seemed cocky and smug. dood, your band is boring live and half the crowd walked out on them cause their set was SO long.

From everything I've seen written about this situation so far, Hit the Lights doesn't seem to mind fueling the fire

If you're walking out on a band because their set is too long, you've got a problem.

i wasn't watching them, i was outside with friends, i walked in 40 mins later into their set and i kid you not, 3/4 of their crowd was gone, they played 14 songs on that tour and all their songs are 4 mins so yeah, they are a band to fall asleep to, not to rock out live to.

That's funny, nobody walked out when I saw them on that tour in Lansing. I met both Cody and AJ, and both were extremely friendly and appreciative. AJ was literally waiting at the exit of the venue to talk to everyone that came out.

I am not even a fan of TDS, but I do find it hilarious to suggest that 14 songs is "too long" for a band's set. That's like exactly an hour, which is far from abnormally long.

I saw them live when they opened for someone else (don't remember who) and they were good enough to hold my interest, even as someone who hadn't heard them prior.

Hope this resolves in him leaving the band/getting kicked.
