Cody Payne has posted a statement in regard to AJ from The Dangerous Summer claiming his bank accounts were drained.
When The Dangerous Summer broke up last September, I walked away from that band not realizing anything was wrong. I was so happy for AJ - he was married to the love of his life, he was becoming a new father and I was nothing but happy for him. We hugged and it was over. That break up was one of the hardest things Iíve ever had to deal with in my life. Yes, we may have had some issues as a band and said things we didnít mean, but we were brothers.

Itís been 9 months and things between us have obviously completely went in the opposite direction. I know I am not...

AJ Perdomo, formerly of The Dangerous Summer, is posting that ex-bandmate Cody Payne has drained AJ's bank accounts. We'll update with more information if it becomes available.
Someone drained all my bank accounts. Called wells Fargo and it was all sent to a "cody payne".

The Dangerous Summer have released a photo book titled Thank You For 8 Years: A Photo Journal Of The Bands Entire Career. That's not me forgetting an apostrophe in "band's"; that's just what it says on the cover. They broke up almost a month ago.

Somewhat predictably, given this weekend's announcement, The Dangerous Summer have broken up.
To keep you all informed (accurately and unbiased) we are here to let you all know what the real deal is with TDS. Yes we are no longer a band. We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for letting us travel the world, create albums, and meet some of the coolest people and musicians on the planet. Thank you for over 50,000 record sales and over 200,000 single sales and a fan base that blew our minds everytime we went on tour. Sadly the day has come where AJ has decided to take up being a father and focusing on that aspect for his life. As for future music Matt is planning to...

The Dangerous Summer frontman AJ Perdomo has left the band. He still wishes to make music. He will hold a Q&A tomorrow at 6pm PST on Twitter to answer questions.
As far as the band goes, I originally wanted to do another album in time, and do some shows in the future. I wanted to carry on the name, and let the band just be stagnant while I spend time at home. It has come to the point where I canít do that anymore. Iíve had a hard time sticking with Cody through this for a very long time, and thereís now a complete disconnect. I donít have control over what the band does, says, or sells anymore; I donít know what the future will be for them either. It has just become something that I need...

The Dangerous Summer have released a statement about the kickstarter for their DVD that was supposed to be released by now.
Sorry for letting you all down, this is 100% my fault and I understand the hate, disapointment and speculation. Just please try and understand how hard it is making a DVD when you have never done it and there were a lot of things that went unaccounted for when planning this thing. This is not something we can simply refund as the money raised was used to make the DVD which the origional version (which we personally were not satisfied with and wanted to redo) has been released in segments online at http://vimeo.com/jmvisuals and if you would like to listen to the hour...

Whether youíre an old fan, casual listener, or just heard ďCatholic GirlsĒ and enjoyed it, this tour is definitely worth going to. The Dangerous Summer plays a great mix of material, while opener Tommy & The High Pilots heightens the bar for future live shows.

The band is also heading out on a headlining tour soon and you can pick up tickets here (tour dates in the replies).

With The Dangerous Summer announcing their new album, Golden Record today, I figured it was only right to ask AJ some questions about the new album and the future of the band. You can read my short interview with him here.
Matt and Ben were definitely sent from heaven. They came at the perfect time. We were trying out drummer after drummer and guitarist after guitarist. After so many misses, we finally found the men we were looking for. It was so hard to go on day after day, not feeling like our band was at it's full potential, but we made it through. We always make sure that we push through any hard time. When Tyler left the band, we recorded War Paint a month later. When Bryan left, we...
