Maryland’s The Dangerous Summer is back with the second taste of their forthcoming record with a new single, “What’s An Hour Really Worth.”

“This song came somewhat earlier on in the writing process. That original riff really sent us into the chase of this song,” vocalist AJ Perdomo says. “The way all of the instruments push and pull really reminds me of a futuristic Reach For The Sun track.”

He continues, “I remember when we reached the bridge, we really tried to switch it up. We try to set limitations to reach new ground sometimes, and the limitation we set was – no cymbals. Christian [Zawacki] really dug in and drove us home on that one. Happy that it is finally out.”

The band’s upcoming album Gravity is slated for release on June 21 via Rude Records. The band first announced the album with the single, “Gravity,” on March 28.

“‘Gravity’ almost never happened. It had an old name—‘The Walls Outside,’ with completely different lyrics. A week before the end of the record, I locked myself in my room for 2 and a half days. It was kind of a breaking point in the record, but it turned out to be filled with so much heart that it ended up as the first single,” Perdomo shares. “It really encapsulates the album. The lonely journey we spent out in space finding our sound. There were times where I thought that we would never make it back.”
