Brian Dales of The Summer Set writes about the band's new album, Stories For Monday.
With Legendary, we were given a small taste of the "big leagues," the finer things, and the radio, and then bad timing led to the radio pulling the rug out from under us. Nothing we could do, but I knew I wanted more, so I put so much pressure on myself to write a bigger, better song. I felt trapped, and started avoiding making a new album by running away from it entirely.

You can read our interview with The Summer Set here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be writing for a brand new record immediately after the tour is done, shooting for a Spring 2015 release.
Legendary came out in April of 2013, I’d love to have a new record before April of 2015 just to say we got it out in under two years, that’s really my main reasoning. I want to shorten the “two year album cycle” to about a year and a half, I’d love to have it out in February.

Yeah, we've been radio minded with this record especially. We've always made pop music; as far as a band, we've always been a little more pop lenient. I think there were always times during our past two records in which we thought about doing some radio stuff, I think it's hard for a band to push to radio too pre-maturity, because if it fails, you're blacklisted. So we'd always think about it...and then pump the brakes and make a new record.

Alter The Press recently interviewed Brian Dales and John Gomez of The Summer Set. This is the first proper interview with the band since announcing its upcoming album, Legendary.
The last song on the record, 'Legendary', was the first song that made the album. It was the first that was written. I think the song was a bit of a turning point in general for us. It was the beginning of last summer, we had just gotten off tour, we had just moved into a house together in Tempe, Arizona, and living with each other for the first time.
